Neat idea: honoring the mothers

Recommended Posts

I just saw this on superweddings.com & thought it was the most touching thing:

Here is a wonderful and very touching idea to honor the two mothers at the wedding ceremony. But be certain to have lots of hankies on hand because this is guaranteed to tear up the eyes of everyone present...

Ask your floral designer to design two detachable floral sprays into your bouquet. After your father walks you down the aisle, just before he turns to leave you and take his seat, remove one of the special flowers from your bouquet. Hand it to him and give him a kiss. Let him know in advance that this will take place and tell him that as he takes his seat in the pew with your mother, he is to present the flower to her on your behalf.

Then at the conclusion of the ceremony, as you begin to make your way back up the aisle as husband and wife, stop at the pew where your mother-in-law is seated. Remove the second special flower from your bouquet and present it to her, along with a kiss, before continuing up the aisle.

Don't tell the moms in advance that this will be taking place! It is the element of surprise which helps to make this so very sweet and special. There will not be a dry eye in the room...

I think I got tears in my eyes just thinking of this idea!

 

Though I'd do it a little differently since my parents are divorced. Instead of having my dad give the flowers to my mom, I think I would want to do that myself.

 

But wow - great idea, I may use it!

Oh yeah, me too. I would present my mother with her flower directly. I may actually have her walk with me down the aisle since I don't have a daddy msncry.gif

That is such an awesome idea! I have been trying to think of ways to do something special for my stepmother who has been such an important part of my life. This is perfect, and also a great way to recognize Jeff's mom too. OK, I'm already teary just thinking about it!
