Married and Making it Stick

Written by the Future Mother of Two Brides and a Groom

I was married 35 years ago. I made the dress the day before, took a week off work and catered my own reception (including the cake), sent out handwritten invitations, and here we are 35 years later with three adult children who are on the verge of getting married. Actually I used to perform music at weddings until brides and their mothers began this awful thing in the mid 90's (coincidentally with launch of Martha Stewart's Weddings magazine) that we now call an “event”.
