Make Your Mom Feel Special On Your Wedding Day
If you’re engaged, congratulations! This is such an exciting time. You likely already have a long to-do list. After all, planning the perfect wedding you’ve always dreamed of is going to take a lot of hard work and thoughtfulness! If you’re fortunate enough to have a loving mother to guide you through it all, you might be wondering how you can make her feel special. In this blog post, we’re sharing a few ways you can make your mom feel appreciated and loved on your wedding day! We hope that you enjoy!
Involve Her In The Planning Process
Planning a wedding requires so much more than just the finances to do so. From the seating chart to booking all the vendors and everything in between, hosting a wedding is a lot of work! If you want your mom to feel included, get her involved in the planning process! Ask her if she has any ideas or preferences. Even if she’s not into all the little details, she’ll have a great time making memories with you through it all. Invite her scope out caterers and venues with you. Try on wedding attire together! If she’s crafty, put her in charge of some DIY’s. Make your mom feel included and she will feel loved leading up to the big day!
Something Old, Something Borrowed, Something Blue!
You’re probably familiar with the tradition of having something old, borrowed, and blue for your wedding day. Put your mom in charge of this task! Tell her that you’d like for her to surprise you with each of these items on the wedding day. Your mom is sure to pick sentimental items that will bring you both tears of joy!
Make Her Feel Fabulous
Everyone loves feeling good about themselves! Make it a point to go dress shopping with your mom. Help her pick out something that she feels beautiful and comfortable in. Treat her to professional hair and makeup services on the day of the wedding. She’ll love sitting back and getting glammed up with the rest of the bridal party!
Let Her Help You Get Ready
There’s something incredibly special about a mother helping her daughter into her wedding gown. If you’re lucky enough, your mother has nurtured and guided you through each aspect of your life. She will feel incredibly honored to help you get dressed for the walk down the aisle. Plus, the photos will be a priceless keepsake!
Consider A First Look With Mom!
If you want to get your mom’s reaction to seeing you as a bride for the first time, consider doing a first look with her! The waterworks are sure to come quickly! This would, no doubt, be a special moment between you two. Plus the photos are sure to be cherished for years to come!
Get Her A Corsage
Consider getting your mom a beautiful corsage. Let your florist know that you want it to be special. Maybe your mom has a favorite color or flower type. She’ll love the thoughtfulness! Not to mention, a corsage on the wrist lets the other guests know that she’s VIP status!
Have Her Join The Walk Down The Aisle
A lot of old wedding traditions are slowly becoming a thing of the past. Consider including your mom in the walk down the aisle! She did play a huge role in who you are today, after all! This is a great way to make your mom feel special.
Transport Her In Style
Private transportation is a great way to make your mom feel appreciated on your wedding day. Consider riding in a limo to the venue on the morning of your wedding day. Pop some bubbly and turn on some fun tunes! You’re sure to start the day off great!
Embrace Her Traditions
Before you get too deep into the wedding planning process, ask your mom if there are any traditions that she would like for you to incorporate into your wedding celebration. Often, your mom might feel strongly about certain aspects of the ceremony or reception. She’ll be happy you considered her opinion.
Give Her A Special Gift
A little token of gratitude goes a long way. A small piece of jewelry might be just the ticket! Gift your mom something you know she’ll love and wear often. This way, every time she puts it on she’ll think of you and your wedding day! Etsy has a bunch of beautiful jewelry options that you can customize.
Arrange A Display
Want to do something cool and unique? If your mom still has her wedding dress, you can display it on a mannequin at the wedding! We’ve seen brides line up several generations of wedding gowns! Be sure to put a photo and a description next to each gown. Your guests will have a great time learning about your family history!
Bridge The Generations
If you’re fortunate enough to have your older relatives at your wedding, be sure to include them in some fun photos! You’ll definitely want a fun picture of your mom, grandmother, and other close relatives! Your mom will love displaying these around her house long after the wedding.
Highlight Her Recipes
If your mom is an awesome cook, it might be fun to incorporate her best recipes into your wedding! She can share a recipe with the catering company, or even set up a dessert table! Maybe even have a signature cocktail named after your mom!
Dance The Night Away!
Have the DJ or band play a song that you know your mom will love. Then, grab your mom by the hand and hit the dance floor! It’s true what they say, wedding days fly by in the blink of an eye. It can be easy to feel overwhelmed by the amount going on throughout the day. It’s important to take a moment to give your mom some one on one attention!
A Thank You Goes A Long Way
Finally, a simple “Thank You” goes a long way. Make a toast to her at your wedding or sneak her away for a moment during the reception. Your mom will appreciate that you took the time to tell her how much you love and appreciate her!
