The Role of Your Mum on Your Wedding Day

With Mother’s Day just around the corner, we decided to celebrate one of the most important days you and your mum will share together and look at the important role of your mum on your wedding day.

Here we share with you the seven top tips on how to include your mum in your wedding preparation and planning, as well as on the day itself, and look at some unique and inspired Mother of the Bride gifts so you can say thank you for everything your mum has done for you throughout your lifetime.

Top 7 ways to include mum on your wedding day:

1. Let her help with the planning

Don’t exclude Mum from your wedding preparations – It's a special day for her too. If she is driving you crazy and wants to be involved in every decision, give her specific jobs or tasks instead. Most mums just want to feel like they’re doing something useful.

Mother of the Bride gift suggestion: Keep her calm with a hand-picked selection of specialty teas in her very own engraved wooden tea box.

2. Get ready together

Make sure you include mum in your hair and makeup bookings and any other pre-wedding festivities on the day. This will be a special time for you both and having mum close at hand on your wedding day might be more helpful than you think.

Mother of the Bride gift suggestion: Help her celebrate with a natural printed wooden wine or champagne box filled with her favourite drop!

3. Have her walk you down the aisle

This is a big one, but increasingly brides are ditching the traditional notion of dad taking them to the altar to include mum in this very important role too. Whether It's just you and mum, or a parent on each arm, this is a very big nod to acknowledge everything she’s done for you.

Mother of the Bride gift suggestion: Make sure she’s looking her best with an engraved compact mirror.

4. Ask her to make a wedding toast or speech

If mum doesn’t mind a bit of public speaking, give her a role to play at the reception by asking her to give a speech, or even a toast. This lets her share some of the limelight and allows her give you away in her own way.

Mother of the Bride gift suggestion: Help her toast in style with a luxe gold rimmed premium engraved champagne glass.

5. Let her make the cake

If your mum is a bit of a whiz in the baking department, why not put her skills to good use? Asking mum to make your wedding cake is an important job and she will enjoy making this contribution to your special day.

Mother of the Bride gift suggestion: Keep her caffeine game strong with an engraved coffee mug to get her through.

6. Get her on the dancefloor

Playing a special song or piece of music that has significance for both you and your mum is a sure-fire way for her to know you appreciate her. At the very least, get her up and dancing with you so she can enjoy the celebrations too!

Mother of the Bride gift suggestion: Keep her well hydrated with a customised engraved 500ml metal water bottle.

7. Don’t forget to say thank you

Sometimes the simple things are often the best. Mum might not want a starring role in your wedding, but don’t forget to say thank you or acknowledge her in your wedding speeches or toasts. A simple thank you can mean the world to any mum.

Mother of the Bride gift suggestion: Help her relive the happy memories with a personalised wedding photo frame featuring a special pic of the two of you on your big day.
