- Wedding: September 2012
My Future Mother-In-Law is about 10 years older than my mom and only has one child, Fiance. I think she’s been to 4 weddings ever, including her own, and they were all decades ago. She’s already made a few ettiquette faux pas because she really doesn’t ‘get’ weddings. Examples: she bought her dress before my mom bought her dress and it’s a bridesmaid dress, she’s making weird demands about the ceremony, she’s doesn’t know what a bridal shower is, etc.
I want the perfect book for a Mother of the Groom who has no idea what’s going on. I found two on amazon, but when I looked on the excerpts, they were awful. They were like, “You should ask about everything and help out about everything. Really invade the bride’s space! Nowadays, the mother of the groom does the same stuff the mother of the bride does!!” I don’t want her feeling obligated to butt in on things she doesn’t care about (like our DJ).
I just want a book that explains what goes into a wedding and the manners surrounding things like toasts, showers, the rehearsal, ceremony, etc. Help!
