To the reader who during today’s live chat complained about wearing a veil at your wedding: I hear you. They’re so outdated. But if your mom is insisting, Washingtonian editor Leslie Milk—author of It’s Her Wedding, But I’ll Cry If I Want To: A Survival Guide for the Mother of the Bride—shared some great how-to-compromise advice. She also talked about where to buy mother-of-the-bride dresses (hint: never use that term), how to deal with drunk relatives, and more. Read the transcript here.
