Post author

Linda Joyce was born in Biloxi, Mississippi, yet she calls New Orleans home. Though she grew up traipsing across the United States from one Air Force base to the next, add in a four-year tour of Japan, she always returns to New Orleans to recharge and reconnect with her roots. However, people often give her odd looks when she explains she’s Irish-Cajun-Japanese. After graduating from the University of Florida with a degree in Business Management, she worked as a Litigation Manager at an insurance company. While living in Kansas, she left corporate America and is now an award-winning writer under contract for her first novel. She currently lives in Atlanta, Georgia with her husband and three dogs: General Beauregard, Gentleman Jack, and Masterpiece Renoir. Linda loves the game of Six Degrees of Separation and loves connecting with people. She always seeks to discover if she may have crossed paths with them before.

    Must have items for a Mother of the Bride purse: A LOT of tissues (for all the happy tears, and some extras for those other people,) assorted makeup (in case bride needs anything, and to reapply after happy tears,) mini sewing kit, duct tape (good for almost any random emergency,) and double sided fashion tape (to keep everything in the dress that’s supposed to be in the dress.)

    I believe mints, blotting paper for oily skin, lip moisturizer, a small package of tissue, and a small bottle of lotion will do the trick.

    Mother of the bride needs? Here is my top five: (1) Tissues (lots). (2) Handi-wipes or similar. (3) Forget needle and thread and go with a good double-stick tape meant for clothing. So much faster and you won’t need to have scissors or risk getting lipstick on someone’s clothes trying to cut with your teeth. (4) collapsible umbrella. Not just for rainy days. When it’s hot and sunny outside while you’re waiting…waiting…waiting…it’s a great way to shade yourself. (5) bottle of water. Seriously. stay hydrated!

    Well, I needed tissues and failed to remember them….and so did my wing woman…the other thing I really needed was band-aids for the blisters the shoes I finally found two nights before the wedding put on my feet….yes, I spent the reception barefooted…..the other thing I needed was my camera that I left on the kitchen table at home…towelettes to wipe the ruined mascara off my face so I didn’t have the raccoon eyes that I later saw in pictures…..Oh, maybe my flip flops so I had something on my feet and didn’t go barefoot all night….
