28 Feb How to make sure that your mum feels involved in your wedding day
There are plenty of roles that come as part of a wedding, the best man, the bridesmaids, the ushers and of course the father of the bride.
The mother of the bride is a very important person to have as a part of your wedding day, however, unlike some people she doesn’t really have a set role or things to do during the big day.
This can mean that your mum can sometimes feel that she is somewhat of a spare part.
To help ensure that your mum feels involved on your wedding day, we have put together some of the best ways that you can include your mum and ensure that she feels as important as she is to you.
Take her with you to all those wedding fayres
An important part of wedding prep is to visit wedding fayres.
Not only does this help you to figure out some of the things that you are going to want at your big day, but will also help you to source suppliers who are going to be ideal for you.
Why not make sure that you take your mum with you to all those wedding fayres?
Not only will it mean that she is included in the planning, but it also means that you can spend some time together, which is great for the both of you.
Make sure she comes to your wedding dress appointments
Another great way that you can get your mum involved during your wedding day is to ensure that she attends your wedding dress appointments with you.
One reason for this is because your mum will definitely give you her honest opinion on how you look, which is incredibly valuable.
She will also get a sneak peek at your dress, which means that she feels pretty special compared to everyone else.
Let her do a speech if she wants
It is traditional for the father of the bride to make a speech during the wedding reception, but who says that we always have to stick with tradition?
Sometimes it is nice to do things a little bit different, especially if it makes sure that your mum is happy.
If she is confident and able to stand up in front of people, then let her plan herself a speech, you may be surprised by just how well this goes down with all your guests.
Organise a spa day together just before the big day
Every single bride needs a bit of stress relief and relaxation before their big day, which means that a spa day is a great idea.
There is no-one better to rest with than your mum, so why not make this special treat something for the both of you?
You will really appreciate the time together and it will definitely help to create some happy memories that you can share.
As you can see, there are a variety of ways that you can make sure that your mum is an important part of your wedding day.
Why not ask her if she can suggest how she would like to be involved and then go from there?
