Mother of the Bride: 357 Days and Counting
My daughter and her long-time beau and now fiance are planning their wedding for Sweetest Day, October 17, 2015. The couple will soon be celebrating their 10-year anniversary of being a couple, so this is not an overnight decision by any means.
Large weddings are not the general rule in my family. I can't recall the last time I attended a wedding, so as mother-of-the-bride, I am winging this. Thankfully the couple have chosen to mix traditional with non-traditional in both the ceremony and the reception, so there will be plenty of room for learning the etiquette and determining where to break from the usual.
They've chosen a theme that is meaningful to them, if a bit unusual -- a John Deere theme. So green and yellow will be the basic colors, but will be downplayed some with the use of burlap and raffia. It's their day, so we'll do it their way.
Lots and lots of work ahead, but also much togetherness and bonding with my daughter and her bridal party. If I'm nervous as mother-of-the-bride, I can only guess how anxious my daughter must feel.
