My daughter gave me fair warning - her boyfriend is planning to propose to her this year.
Forget for a moment that this isn't spontaneous (although he might make it romantic, because he wouldn't tell her when - only that it would be this year). When your only daughter starts talking wedding, you occasionally find yourself looking at wedding dresses online.
So there I was, innocently looking at wedding dresses, when I realized those dresses looked more like prom dresses than what I would call a wedding dress. Call me old fashioned, but I consider too much black on a wedding dress to be a little morbid.
And then there are the colored ones. As much as I love Beauty & the Beast, I wouldn't want MY daughter to be married in Belle's yellow gown (if that makes you happy, by all means, go for it).
And then there are the ones with "princess" skirts or vintage lace - so prim and proper.
Mr. Curtis says all I've done so far is stress myself out - shouting during a football game about the horror of a wedding dress and practically jerking him out of his doze!
So tell me ladies, how's a mother to cope? Any advice?
