Once the bride and groom are legally married in a church they are Mr. & Mrs. and this should go on the favors at the reception hall.
the difference is obvious, You should be a bride or you are to be a bride. (should=could (sorta) and to be = you will be.
Adam Fitting goes by Pipe.
i think white should be reserved for the bride. soft pastel colours and linen fabric is the way to go i think
When going to the church the mother and father of the bride along with the maid of honor; brides maids; flower girl can go in the limo, but after the wedding is over the bride and groom if going for pictures first should leave the church on their own and the parents from both sides of the family along with the wedding party should meet the bride and groom along with the photography at a designated area for wedding pictures.
The groom should buy the engagement and wedding ring for his bride to be and the bride to be should buy the groom's wedding band.
Some brides prefer to go with their own mother, but, if everyone gets along then there is no reason that the mother of the bride and the future mother-in-law can't go shopping for a wedding dress.
Since you are the boyfriend of the mother of the bride you should go out shopping with your mate and it's etiquette that the gift come from both of you or, she could help you out choosing something for her daughter.
I hope they are making bride wars 2 they should make bride wars 2
* If you know the parents or a relative of the bride and groom and you received an invitation then you should go to the wedding even though you don't know the bride or groom or, you also have the choice of giving an excuse as to why you can't attend if it makes you uncomfortable. If someone was invited and asked you along as a guest then it's your choice to go or not go and if you do you don't need to give a wedding gift, but your date or friend does.
Shouldnt the Mother be giving the bride a gift ?
