AMANDA: I mentioned to my mom that I’d rather not get dressed at my parents’ house before the wedding because Fiona and Max, our dog and cat, shed everywhere. You could vacuum 24/7 and it wouldn’t matter – I didn’t want black and white fur covering my Vera Wang dress. So I suggested I get dressed, hair and make-up all at the hotel with the bridesmaids and her, of course.
Apparently this wasn’t my most sensitive moment. Unfortunately, my mom thought I was impugning her housekeeping and the animals and, generally, her. But I wasn’t! I’m sorry Mom!
