Shortly after you get married, it’s pretty common for the soon-to-be bride to get bombarded with all kinds of questions like “have you set a date yet?” “what are your colors going to be?” and “what kind of wedding are you going to have?” but can you imagine what the most difficult and stressful question is that newly engaged couples get asked?
