What is the "New Norm?" Simply stated: whatever works. The relationship between the Bride and the Groom, their specific Wedding Vision, and their respective relationships with their families are the key elements in determining how the Wedding Planning Process will move forward. Every "Wedding Experience" has its own distinct "Wedding Planning Process Personality" and the roles of the MOB and MOG will reflect this.

The first step is to define and verify your expected part and function from the outset. I strongly suggest that you initiate this by asking for clarification rather than assuming anything. Your participation and involvement are critical to the success of the process. Setting off on the proverbial "right foot" with sincere respect, offers of freely-given assistance, and plenty of unconditional love for your child and their intended is not only a gift to them, but a gift, as well, to yourself. Although the obvious goal is providing everything to fulfill the Wedding Dreams of the Bride and Groom, the MOB and MOG are actually laying the foundation for all the Holidays and Family Gatherings of the future...in all the years to come. Remember that this experience is equally important to everyone involved, just in different ways.
