From Section One

Dear Son,

About your wedding...Your bride-to-be and her mother are rushing around making plans for the big day and you're wondering what all the fuss is about. You think you can just kick back and wait for the wedding day. But, my have another "think" coming!

Surprise! There is plenty for you to do, and best not to leave it to the last minute. I'm telling you this now so you won't say, "Mom never told me!"

First and most important on your list should be...


You may wonder why I'm shouting at you, but if I don't you don't hear me. And for goodness sakes, dispose of that mass of moldy gray matter you call socks.


Your bride will have a lovely trousseau filled with pastel lacy dainties. You might be embarrassed to open your suitcase and bring out that ripped rag of a gray sweat suit. BIBW! (Burn it before wedding.)

And you know the wet towels you leave on the floor and the clothes you just step out of and walk away from? Well, don't expect your wife to be your mother and pick them up. Today's women are liberated and your sweetie will expect you to do your share.

I know it sounds like I'm picking on you, but there are some things that only a mom can tell you and this is my last chance. So here it goes!

Remember to replace used toilet paper rolls, soap and toothpaste -- and clean shaved whiskers out of the sink!

Those are just the personal things to remember, but there are also practical things you can do to help with the plans for your wedding. Now don't groan. This will be the biggest party you'll probably ever have, so why not enjoy it!

No matter if you and your bride have decided on a small gathering or a royal feast, there is still plenty to do. And you may look at each other and wonder where to begin. There may be exhausting moments when you'll wish you'd eloped -- but you're tough, you can handle it. Hang in there. It'll be worth it.

The list of things you have to do are only a third of what your bride will be doing. So be patient and understanding with her. There are some things you can do together. Don't look on these as chores, but as fun. Remember, it's all part of the game. And you only get out of it what you put into it.
