Honoring Your Mother At Your Wedding

Hello Wonderful Sons & Daughters!

Mother’s Day is almost here and it is time to celebrate mom and all the things she has done for you throughout the years (even though you should celebrate your mom every single day!) She has been the one holding your hand through every hardship, happy moment, and moment in between! Your mom is probably over the moon for you to get married. However, it is important to remember that it will be hard for her to let gn. Weddings in our mother’s generations were different than they are now. Back in the day, a woman’s turn to plan a wedding was when her daughter got married. But nowadays, couples want to take the lead on planning their wedding and often mothers get lost in the hustle and bustle of it all. We get it, you want to have your own wedding that tells the story of your love and is reflective of your tastes and preferences. However, don’t be too hard on your mom when her opinions get a bit pushy and things become tense. She was likely not all that involved in planning her own wedding and has now missed out on the chance to plan yours. At the end of the day, we know that your mom wants you to be super happy and you want your mom to feel involved. To that end, in honor of Mother’s Day, we have compiled a list of ways to honor your mom on your special day.

Something Borrowed, Blue & New

Walking down the aisle with a part of your mom attached to you is a way to honor your mom and show her how close she is to your heart.

Get Ready Together

Your mom wants to spend as much time as possible on your big day. She wants to be there from the moment you wake up to the moment you get your hair done to you putting on your gorgeous dress. She wants to see her little girl turn into a beautiful bride.

Let Her Give a Toast

Your mom is one of the people that knows you the best. She is the one that knows all your quirks, all your stories and is the best memory keeper of your childhood. Let her share all her memories of you to a room full of people who know and love you just as much as she does.

Dance with Mom

Make sure your mom is able to showcase her dance moves. I am sure she will surprise you on the dancefloor! Let her pick a song that is special and close to her heart. She will cherish those few minutes swaying with you.

Showcase Her Wedding Photo

Have a picture of your mom on her wedding day for all guests to admire. This is a way for your mom to reflect on her big day and how excited she is for you to have the same feelings.

Walk Down Aisle with Mom

Your mom will appreciate the thought of having her be a part of walking you down the aisle. Letting her be apart of that special moment when she gets to pass you off to the man that will take care of you for the rest of your life is unforgettable.

Mention Your Mom in a Speech

Giving you mom that extra shout out will put a smile on her face. It is easy to just thank your parent’s and move on. Try and individually thank both of them and say something heartwarming about them.

Remember that your mom was always there for you and will always be there for you after you are married. We hope that you and your mom have an amazing Mother’s Day. However, we at Marisa Nicole Events believe that you should honor your mom every single day so make sure you tell her how much she is appreciated.
