My son just called to invite me to join him and his sweet fiance to look at ways to create their wedding invitations. So here we are again, off and running into wedding planning.
My oldest son had a beautiful wedding nineteen months ago. Being the mother of the groom, one typically does not take on as much responsibility and has time to watch from afar--providing she can be comfortable with watching and not inserting opinions. But in both wedding situations the girls were somewhat on their own, thus traditional roles were modified.
In the earlier wedding my daughter-in-law (and my son) did a marvelous job and we all look back fondly at the memories. Now we begin a new wedding process. Different personalities, different expectations. I am so glad to be invited to join. Off to invitations and then on to the many steps of wedding planning.
