Congratulations! This book will help any mother carry off her parental role in planning with dignity and common sense while explaining the execution of a traditional wedding. Included is vital information on advising the couple on emotional decisions, relationship issues, and budget concerns. From controlling expenses to managing the guest list, this handy guide provides all of the information necessary to helping a son or daughter have the wedding of their dreams.As a parent, your life is about to change, and this will have far reaching effects. Who could guess the spark of a tiny diamond has the power to ignite the flurry of activities and emotions following the engagement of a daughter or son? Gaining a new family member can be as excruciating as childbirth and, ultimately, as rewarding. Marriage is a turning point in your son or daughter’s life, a commitment to a future as a responsible adult with a family to care for. When the reality meets the dream, I guarantee your child will rely on you for help in crossing over. This special time in your life gifts you with closeness to your child, even as it thrills and scares you to death. Fits of activity and ever-present anxiety will terminate with the sweet pain of separation. You may not have been this “in touch” with your son or daughter since babyhood; it feels good to be needed, and it may hurt to see it end. Yet, a child's marriage is hardly an end.

Oh, No, They're Engaged is A MUST READ!Ms. Smith writes with humor, sage advice and interesting little historical tidbits. I especially like the pointers she gives to both the mother of the bride and the mother of the groom. The reader is taken through each step of the wedding process, from before the proposal has been made to when the new family has been formed. She explores the multitude of choices required for a wedding and the things that must be considered. Who knew that if you had a large home wedding you’d need to make sure your circuit breaker box could handle the additional load for the porta potties? Her sensitivity in how to include the main players and get their input while still maintaining a budget and your sanity is invaluable. I found it a very helpful and engaging book for anyone needing to plan wedding.
The Perfect Gift for the Parents of the Bride & Groom!I SO wish I'd had this handy guide playing on my team when my daughter got married two years ago. Some how-to books can be boring – not Joy Smith's take on the subject!With a lighthearted approach, she helps a parent handle not only the practical matters. She also keeps things light, injecting enough humor to help keep tension at bay. Sage advice to keep the grueling/euphoric process of planning a wedding from destroying what should be the happiest time of life.Most people purchase gifts for the happy couple at engagement time - I suggest a new tradition. Know the parent of a newly engaged son or daughter? This book is the perfect way to say "congratulations."
I bought this book because my daughter is getting married and I wasn't sure what to expect. It's full of a lot of great advice and I'd recommend it to any mother of the bride or groom. I ready enjoyed reading it.
