The big day breakdown: At long last, it's Carrie and Mr. Big's wedding day — and in usual Carrie fashion, she's gone all-out on a huge, elaborate ceremony. The only issue? Big doesn't show up. Instead, he calls her to say that he can't do it, and she's heartbroken. When they reconnect shortly after, she realizes that she'd made the wedding all about her without considering what he wanted: a small, low-key exchange of vows.
The lesson: Yes, you may have been dreaming about your big day since you were a little girl, but remember that it's not just your day; it's his day, too. Before you do any major planning, take the time to sit down and discuss your visions. Not only will you make sure that he's happy with the outcome, but you'll also have a wedding that's special and personal to both of you.
