Mothers and Brides: 3 Tips for Happily-Ever-After Wedding Planning
1. Money Matters.
2. Guest List Graciousness.
Weddings are times of tradition, and many a mother has saved her wedding gown in the hopes her daughter would one day wear it. It's often beautiful to see something from the past carried into the future, but mothers of the bride should understand if their daughters don't attach the same meaning to that fingertip veil circa 1974 that they do. If there are one or two things that are really meaningful to a MOB, she should present the ideas to her daughter as a suggestion, not a mandate. The more you ask for in this situation, the less you're likely to get. And daughters--consider honoring reasonable wedding requests from your mother. Sooner than you think, you may be standing in her shoes, trying to help your daughter plan her dream wedding.
