One mother-of-the-bride is upset that her husband will photograph their daughter’s wedding instead of being her date. See what the Wedding Guru has to say...

One of the things I’ve learned is that the expression “Different strokes for different folks” fits many wedding issues. Just as bridal couples are different from one another, so are the dynamics among family members. What works for one family absolutely doesn’t for another... and that’s okay!
A Hudson Valley mother-of-the-bride writes: “I’ve looked forward to my daughter’s wedding ever since she was a little girl. I dreamed of the day when, after the first dance, my husband and I would be called to the dance floor. I am annoyed, angry, and disappointed that my husband — a professional photographer by trade — decided, at my daughter’s request, to shoot her wedding. That, in essence, will leave me alone to fend for myself during the entire wedding. He and I have had long talks about this issue. I think my daughter was inconsiderate asking him for such a favor and, certainly, she never took my feelings into consideration. Am I wrong? What, if anything, can I do?”
