No, no . . . not the physical address. Although that is important (see my previous post on welcoming words). This is more about the message to the bride and groom.

Gather in, gather ’round. It’s the opening strains of a good story.  And the first words, the first notes, the first movements matter. They will either hook the listeners or lose their interest.
