My amazing mother and me in St. Louis.They’ve wiped our tears from our childhood falls and our first heartbreaks. They’ve encouraged us to be who we were meant to become and helped guide us on our path to get there. They’ve sacrificed time, finances and their own desires in order to give us the best life possible. Our mothers. Where would most of us be without them?
As we celebrate Mother’s Day this Sunday, it’s important to make sure our moms know how much we appreciate them. However, we were inspired by ways you can honor mothers on an even more important day—you’re wedding, the day you officially begin a family of your own.
Real Wedding grooms Kevin and Pete were each escorted down the aisles by their mothers.
When your special day arrives, there’s no sweeter way to honor the woman who raised you then by integrating heirloom details into your wedding day details. Here are five creative ideas:
When Kim married her wife Randie in upstate New York, it was important for the couple to infuse sentimental details into their day, including turning Kim’s mother’s wedding gown into a beautiful canopy for their chuppah.
Kim was also insistent on using her inherited family china at the reception, much to the caterer’s concerns. The mix-matched pieces paid homage to her ancestral lineage while creating individualistic, shabby chic table settings that paired effortlessly with the overall vintage theme.
Add the “something old” to your wedding day ensemble with a locket keeping photographs of your mother. Brides can accessorize their bouquet or wear around their neck, and grooms and brooms can turn it into a boutonniere, keeping Mom close to their heart.
My mom's favorite has always been Chanel N°5
For femme brides who don’t have their own signature scent, spritz on the perfume your mother has worn for years. When nerves begin, one deep breath will send you back to childhood and put you at ease.
If you're not big on baubles, incorporate your mother’s jewelry into the brides’ or bridesmaids’ bouquets for a personal and glamorous touch.
Happy Mother’s Day to all of the moms out there!
