If you're going to skip a colleague's wedding, you'll want to make sure you have a good reason so you don't cause any hard feelings that would make things awkward at work.

Adams's wedding to Pretty Little Liars' Troian Bellisario and the thought behind her choice makes her seem downright selfless.
