(Disclaimer: We are thrilled our daughter got married. We love our son-in-law. We are grateful she found her Ezer Knegdo. This is not a complaint post at all.)
No one told us that the most stressful part of making a wedding is...... finding gowns- IF you want a color besides white, off-white, or black. Which I don't think are colors. But Jewish rental places do.
No one told us about the endless lists and lists and shopping and returns.
I guess it's a good thing that everyone focuses on the fun, and the planning, and the excitement, and the wedding.
When you lock up the front door at night and you know that all those who now live at home are in- and one isn't.
How you are still on a high from a beautiful and fun wedding, from the simcha, from knowing you have a wonderful son-in-law who is good to your daughter and whom she is crazy about - but-
No one told us how great the void is when one of your children doesn't live at home anymore.
