Overview

Congratulations! Your little girl is getting married! Once the initial excitement of the announcement wears off, it becomes clear that Mother of the Bride is not just a title. It's a role, with responsibilities and do's and don'ts.

The Mother-of-the-Bride Book explains that role and how it has changed over time. It details the exact responsibilities of the Mother of the Bride (MOB) from the earliest planning stages right up to waving good-bye as the newlyweds depart for their honeymoon--and even after that. The MOB may be involved in or completely responsible for: Putting together the guest list and designing a seating chart; Helping the bride and groom choose a date and location; Throwing an engagement party; Arranging lodging for out-of-town guests; Booking a band, hiring a caterer, buying favors; Countless other details that can't be overlooked.

Chock full of ideas and advice, The Mother-of-the-Bride Book is an invaluable tool for the second busiest and (admit it) second most important woman in any wedding.
