Countdown to Mother’s Day!

As we look forward to celebrating moms this Sunday, remember that as you are planning your wedding day there are so many special ways to include and honor your mother in your wedding ceremony.

This applies to stepmothers, grandmothers, and even you, too!

Opportunities to honor mom in your wedding ceremony:

  • By Your Side

Request that your mother escort you down the aisle. Many moms have played the role of both parents in their child’s life, and this is a beautiful way to acknowledge that.

Or, even ask her to serve as your Maid/Matron of Honor. There is no reason why your very own mother can’t serve in this very important role as well.

Grooms, as you walk down the aisle, show how much you honor your mother by escorting her to her place of honor

  • Express Your Gratitude

At the beginning of the ceremony, together as a couple present a single rose to each mom (stepmothers, too!), in a gesture of gratitude for all the support and love they have given you throughout the years.

  • In Memory

If you mother has died, there are many ways to honor her in memoriam. Your officiant can acknowledge her during opening remarks. You can leave an empty chair at the front row, perhaps even with a single white rose on it. You can include photos of her at a special “In Memoriam” table at the ceremony.

  • New Mom

Are you taking on a role of mother or adopting your new spouse’s child?
Are you already a mom? There are many ways to include the kids in your unity ceremony.
