Grooms: Score Points this Mother’s Day

Tuesday, April 27th, 2010


Mother’s Day is next Sunday. I’m sure you’ve already thought about what to do for your own mother, right? Well don’t forget, now you have two moms. If you want to score some points with your future MIL, send her a bouquet NOW, before she’s actually your “mother.” Make sure to include a sweet note thanking her for giving you the love of your life. For bonus points DON’T tell your fiance that you’ve done this. Let your MIL be the one to let her know what a sweetheart you are.

Score points with your future mother-in-law AND your bride for the cost of a bouquet? You can thank me later.

Bride vs. Mom: Groom Gets to Referee

It’s all laughs with mom until the bride tries to steal her baby boy..

One of the big mysteries of married life is why two women with so much in common just can’t get along.  I’m talking of course about your fiancée and your mom!  Even if your mom and your girl got along great while you were dating, expect some flare-ups while you’re planning the wedding.  As a guy, your natural instinct is to stay far, far away from fights that don’t involve you.

Here’s a little secret info from OneWed- every magazine, episode of Oprah, and all your girl’s friends are telling her that YOU should be the one to solve this problem. In fact, these fights may escalate because your girl is waiting for you to intervene. Now… what you do and how you solve it totally depends on the situation.  But as your official bride’s-eye-view, I thought you’d want to know, now is the time to act! Good luck!
