Today is Mother’s Day, and that got me thinking about moms, and all of the wonderful things that they do. I have had the opportunity to work with so many wonderful mothers during my time in the wedding industry! If you want to show your mom your love and appreciation for her, here are a few ways that you can honor your mother on your wedding day.
Make her feel beautiful
Helping your mom feel her best on your wedding day is a great way to honor her; she’s beautiful no matter what, but helping her to select a special look for the wedding will make her feel extra wonderful. Assist her ahead of time with selecting an outfit and hair & makeup that will make her feel her best - it will mean the world to her, and make you feel pretty great, too!
Wear something that belongs to her
Still searching for something old, new, borrowed, and blue? Honor your mom by including something of hers as part of this tradition. You could wear a piece of her jewelry, wrap a piece of fabric or trinket of hers around your bouquet, or even wear her wedding dress if you choose to.
Share a special moment
There are so many opportunities to share a special moment with your mother on your wedding day; you can have her walk you down the aisle, do a “first look”, or share a mother/daughter dance during your reception. Your mom is sure to love and cherish any (or all!) of these moments with you.
I hope that you’ll include some of these ideas in your wedding day, to show your mom how much she means to you. Leave a comment if you’ll be honoring your mom in another way!
PS - Happy Mother’s Day to all the mamas out there! <3
Until next time,
