Who runs the world? Girls! Mums. Step mums, Mum-in-Law, Mums who aren't even related to us. They've been there though the teenage years (oh lord), the tears, the tantrums, the successes and the failures. Ofcourse we want our mums to feel special on the wedding day, because this is a milestone for them also!

Photo of her wedding. Put a photo of your mum at her wedding (and the in laws) at the guest book table. If you can get grandparents even better. 

First Look - have you considered doing a first look with your mum? Chat to your photographer and see if they can capture the moment your mum see's her little girl in her wedding dress for the first time!




Don't forget your mum, during the prep time. Make sure she is included in the bridal party prep, get her a matching robe in a different colour to the bridal party so that she stands out.

How about a Mother Daughter Dance Traditionally, dad gets a lot of the spotlight moments, from the walk down the aisle to the dance, but mum deserves to have a moment to shine, too!

Create a standout feature! Acknowledge how much your mom means to you with a thank you letter or a poem dedicated to her written in the program.

One of the hardest things is if your mum can’t be part of your big day. Make a special section at the ceremony just for your mum by putting her photo and favorite flowers where she would have sat. Or put her picture into a Bouquet charm so you can take her down the aisle with you.
