While the mother-of-the-bride doesn’t have such a prominent role as the father-of-the-bride (ie. walking you down the aisle or delivering a heartfelt speech at the wedding), she will play a very important part in your big day and the lead up to your wedding.
From planning the bridal shower, to attending dress fittings and maybe even helping to make DIY wedding favours, there are a lot of responsibilites that fall to the mother-of-the-bride, so it’s a nice gesture to give her a gift to thank her for all of her help.
Personalised mother-of-the-bride gifts are an extra special touch, but the gift needed break the bank if you only have a little bit of your wedding budget left over!
When do you give the mother-of-the-bride gift?
It’s traditional to give your bridal party their bridesmaid gifts on your wedding morning, so it makes sense to give your mum her present then too.
Just make sure to build in time for them to open them so you don’t end up behing schedule. Alternatively, you could give your bridal party their gifts while you’re having your hair or make-up done.
