Meet New York Times bestselling author and mother Susan and her writer daughter Elizabeth. They co-wrote How I Planned Your Wedding, The All-True Story of a Mother and Daughter Surviving the Happiest Day of Their Lives. Your show host Holli Ehrlich LOVED this heart warming book and hopes that every mother daughter (and son) tunes in to today’s episode of Here Come the Moms to hear their valuable wisdom and voice of reason.
Elizabeth starts the book with, “I was born to be a bride.” Susan says, “Does anybody actually dream about being the MOTHER of the bride?” They are extraordinarily close and relive fond memories about their journey including how they handle their differences with mutual respect and love. They talk about Dave, Elizabeth’s husband, and the importance of working on your wedding as a couple. A big white dress is a big white dress, bridesmaids and friendship, investing in a wedding planner, photographer and videographer, how to treat each other and being grateful is all part of this podcast.
Susan and Elizabeth share their feelings, values, apprehension and excitement. They share their reality and common sense of wedding planning. Most of the experience is universal. Ultimately you want to feel respected, listened to and accepting of your plans and this mother daughter duo deliver great ideas, decisions and lessons learned.
