Tips to Survive the WeddingWondering if you are going to survive your daughter’s wedding?  Luckily, there’s a new “wedding survival guide” that will help you do exactly that.  The book, titled It’s Her Wedding But I’ll Cry If I Want To, by Leslie Milk, is designed to help you figure out your role as the mother of the bride, and to get through the wedding with your relationship with your daughter intact.

Leslie begins by outlining the golden mantra that you will have to hold on to through every stage of the wedding planning: ‘this is not my wedding’.  She then goes on to explain the importance of laying down certain ground rules with your daughter before the actual wedding planning begins.  Not only will these help you to avoid misunderstandings at a later stage, they will also help you ask questions that need to be asked with the least amount of fuss.

These ground rules cover things such as the cost of the wedding, the distribution of the wedding responsibilities, the decisions regarding the guest list, various dates and deadlines, and more. While these may seem like obvious things, Leslie’s suggestions on how to handle the many tricky problems that come with each of these details are why you should read the book.
