I know that since my wedding is a year away that this may be too far out to be a big deal now but I am confused. My mother has offered to do a few things to help with the wedding. An example would be that she wanted to perform the ceremony. She got ordained online and then she had people telling her that she shouldn't because as the MOB she will have so many other things to do and will be so busy. It turns out that when I bought my dress (a little early but it was a steal on sale), she teared up seeing me in it and decided that she might cry on the day of and that it wouldn't be right to officiate. I agreed.
Different people that she talks to keep telling her that she will be so busy as the MOB that she won't have time to help do anything on the wedding day. They don't tell her what it is she will be doing. I don't expect anyone to help but since she has offered and would like to, then I would like to let her.
My question then is what roles or duties do you think that people are talking about? What did you MOB do or what will she be doing day of? We are both confused as to why everyone thinks she can't help.
