Mother of the Bride – the beginning. The responsibilities of the Mother of the Bride was the first thing I google searched when my daughter told me she was engaged.
Of course, this search came after many tears of happiness on my part. There were a few tears of sadness too, I will tell you more on that later.
I will be sharing an article every week that talks about Mother of the Bride responsibilities and all things wedding. Many of them will be “old school” ideas, after all, I am much older than many MOB’s are right now. Many of the ideas will be modern and for the young at heart.
I will be sharing my Mother of the Bride ideas and views on:
- Wedding dresses (when do you buy it? Styles, etc)
- Mother of the Bride Dresses
- The latest trends
- Social Media
- and more
For me, I think the question, “How do I support my daughter during this wonderful, yet stressful time?” is the most important question that needs an answer.
As I said earlier, I shed some tears of sadness when I found out my daughter was getting married. I knew that she would lean on her soon to be husband more than she would lean on me. I know this is how it is supposed to be and I am happy that she has found a man who always has a shoulder ready for her to lean on.
We want so much for our babies. We want them to be independent, good stewards of the earth. We want them to fall in love and live happily ever after. But, be honest, we also want them to remain those sweet little babies who cling to us.
I hope that during the next year or so, I will be able to answer that question for myself and share my experiences with you. I know that everyone is different, but perhaps my ups and downs will help you out.
I hope these articles help you when you become a Mother of the Bride. Perhaps they will even help your daughter and all of the females in your family. Have your husband and your soon to be son-in-law read them too. I will share information that everyone would benefit from.
