Mother of the Bride: 60 Days and Counting
Sixty days until the big event now! I've been cool as a cucumber in the months preceding this, but am beginning to get the jitters for my daughter and her fiance. Everything up until now has moved forward as planned, but there is still so much that must happen in the last weeks and days before the wedding and reception.
Her anxiety is building, too. Today she returned to work, meaning the free time she had over the summer to work on all things wedding-related is a thing of the past. I think being back to work will help a bit because she won't have as much time to worry needlessly.
I'm happy to report I no longer have to be concerned about tanning my body parts to appear presentable in my dress. I am no longer going to wear a dress, having returned it and chosen a tunic top and matching palazzo pants instead. I've made an appointment with my hair stylist to have hair trimmed and colored a week prior to the wedding.
The RSVPs for the reception are coming in pretty quickly. So far we've received two back without names on them, but at least marked for how many will be attending. That will be important for the headcount to the caterer. We'll just be happily surprised to see who shows up to fill those seats. : )
The bridal shower is scheduled for September 19, being held by one of the bridesmaids. My responsibility is to find childhood photos of my daughter and show up for the shower. I think I can safely handle both of those duties.
I need yet to find a pair of shoes to wear to the wedding, although I'd much prefer to be barefoot. I can't embarrass my daughter, though, by showing up with bare piggies.
Now I've learned my son and his fiance will be married in the spring. All of these preparations will hopefully seem second nature for that event. <Fingers crossed>
