Every Mother dreams of watching her daughter walk down the aisle on her wedding day. It’s full of emotion – that’s her baby girl, will she be happy, oh my goodness, she looks so beautiful! All these thoughts and more are running through her mind. The Mother of the Groom has similar feelings. And yet, sometimes Mom might feel a little left out. Though some brides are having both their Mom and Dad walk them down the aisle, most are still escorted by just Dad. If you’d like to give Mom a little attention, here’s a suggestion, and it’s almost guaranteed to make her tear up. I call this “Roses To Moms” when I discuss it with my couples. Simply put, it’s a presentation of roses (eternal symbols of love) to the Moms during the ceremony, accompanied by words about how the marriage not only brings two people together, but two families as well, and the couple wish to express their gratitude to their families by presenting each Mom with a rose. Short, simple, and heartfelt. Consider if it you’d like to honor the families without a complete Family Unity Ceremony. Happy Wedding Planning!
