I am THRILLED to share this guest blog feature today, tailored solely for a specific reader group: our MOTHERS of brides! We are honored to be sharing this thoughtfully curated list of wedding tips and wisdom from popular blogger [and former “mother of the bride”], Kate on the Daily. Kate has her own lifestyle blog where she shares regular nuggets of fashion, travel, hosting and more. LLC Events was privileged to plan and coordinate Kate’s daughter’s wedding last Fall and continue to have a treasured relationship that blossomed from wedding planning together.
