My oldest daughter is getting married next month, which means we’re down to the wire on getting crafts done, finalizing the flower arrangements, and doing all the tedious things one does when one gets married. Though, this is really 2 people getting married, 8 sets of parents and co-parents giving away their children, and a whole mess of family that is getting ready to be blended together. I am, naturally, considering what wedding advice to give my daughter as she plans on starting this new adventure of her life and have come up with some things I have taught her growing up, and also some things that I’ve had to reflect upon in my own experience as a previously-married woman.
There are certain things I assume I will be telling her in my role of Mother-of-the-Bride on the day of her wedding. For instance, I’m sure I’ll have to remind her to eat something so she can the energy to get through the day. The following advice I have for her is both for her actual wedding day and the marriage the comes after it.Those things are inextricably linked, though I worry that many couples spend more time, effort and money on one day and not the same efforts in the actual work of the marriage.
