What Advice Would You Give to the Mother of the Bride?
My niece will be getting married in a few weeks. Her mom asked me, do you have any practical advice for me? This will be the first time she will be “mother of the bride.” “Yes, I do!” 1) Make sure you wear comfortable shoes. 2) Deflect stress with humor.
Here’s my favorite mother-of-the- bride joke:
THE PERFECT DRESS
Jennifer's wedding day was fast approaching. Nothing could dampen her excitement not even her parents' nasty divorce. Her mother had found the PERFECT dress to wear and would be the best dressed mother-of-the-bride ever!
A week later, Jennifer was horrified to learn that her father's new young wife had bought the exact same dress!
Jennifer asked her to exchange it, but she refused. "Absolutely not. I look like a million bucks in this dress, and I'm wearing it," she replied. Jennifer told her mother who graciously said, "Never mind sweetheart. I'll get another dress. After all, it's your special day."
A few days later, they went shopping and did find another gorgeous dress. When they stopped for lunch, Jennifer asked her mother, "Aren't you going to return the other dress? You really don't have another occasion where you could wear it."
Her mother just smiled and replied,
"Of course I do, dear. I'm wearing it to the rehearsal dinner the night before the wedding."
Two antenna meet on a roof, fell in love, and got married.
The ceremony wasn't much, but the reception was great!
A little girl was at a wedding with her parents. After the wedding, she asked her mother why the bride changed her mind. "What do you mean?" her mother responded. "Well, she went down the aisle with one man and came back with another."
Behind every successful man stands a devoted wife and a surprised mother-in-law.
A man inserted an 'ad' in the classifieds: 'Wife wanted'. Next day he received a hundred letters. They all said the same thing: 'You can have mine.'
