Some Responsibilities of the Mother of the Bride

mother of the brideA mother’s work is never done. From the moment she finds out her child will be born until her last days, her love and support is unwavering. As the person who has stood by you through thick and thin, it is only fitting that she assists you on the biggest day of your life. The mother of the bride has traditionally held many responsibilities that are particularly cherished in the heart of every bride.

One of those special moments that transpires between mother and daughter is the purchase of the wedding gown. This symbolic white dress is the focal centerpiece of the day, and seeing the bride walk into the ceremony is one of the most anticipated moments for guests and the groom alike. Not only is the mother of the bride involved in the choice of wedding dress, but she also traditionally helps her daughter to get dressed on the wedding day; placing the veil on her daughter’s head is a particularly meaningful moment between the two.

There are various roles customarily assigned to moms during the wedding planning process; designed to take stress off of the bride and groom as they prepare for their new lives together. The to-do list can seem endless as the big day approaches – therefore, the mother of the bride often takes on the time-consuming tasks of speaking to and confirming with the vendors, and sorting out small issues. And your mother is the perfect point of contact – as the person you trust the most, you know she has your best interest at heart and would never let you down. Not to mention, she’ll be thrilled to help!
