You hope to hear those words someday from your daughter or your son, but when you do, what really starts going through your head?
Are thoughts of “how in the world will we pay for this” running through your brain as you are smiling and congratulating the soon to be newlyweds? Maybe your thinking when and where will this all take place. Am I up for this?
Many of these thoughts will cross our mind and frankly It’s terrifying. Not because they shouldn’t get married, but the stories that are told about cost and how your lovely daughter turns into bride-zilla are hard to let go of.
How should we handle all the questions, arrangements, attitudes. Some of you have already been through a wedding and know just what I’m talking about. How did you handle the “we’re getting married” words. Have any first thoughts you could share?
