I am headed back to New York next week for my daughter’s wedding. It will be a very small family affair. That was her choice. She has very understated but decidedly upscale taste. Kate’s an artist, visually brilliant, flirting on the edge of the millennial generation; but way past fairy tale wedding expectations. She says she trusts me and will bow to my planning decisions. With only two months to organize logistics while residing in Mexico, it’s been a challenge. But, I have finally pulled it together: white peonies and roses, a naked wedding cake, harpist and dinner at a private venue. My daughter’s laissez faire attitude does not fit the stereotypical bride. It’s not that she’s calm (heaven forbid) she just seems relieved to not be burdened with decisions. It’s hard to believe that she will be getting married in two weeks. So imagine my surprise when NK iMode offered to send her a bridal gift and she became enthralled with the prospect. One look at the choices and she was on the phone with me collaborating. She chose a white silk cami and short set, mainly because she wants to wear the cami out. But she would have been thrilled with anyone of the Morgan and Jezebel collection, espousing on their beauty. The only issue is that her fiancé, who is very traditional, won’t let her show it to him until after the wedding. So she has no one to share it with until I return to New York.
