Neat idea: honoring the mothers

Recommended Posts

I really love this. I am not especially close to my future mother-in-law, so I think this would be a sweet gesture.

I'm in the same boat! I've only met her once on a weekend visit to her home. She is older & only speaks spanish (I speak spanish too, but I don't have the vocabulary to get wedding/love ideas across!) I thought it would be really nice to do something special like that so she feels important.

As an update - I did do this, and it was very special. Both mom's loved it. The only tricky thing is sticking the 2 flowers you will give them to your bouquet securely enough so you don't drop them, but not so securely that you can't get them off when you need them!! I had a bit of a technical difficulty getting the flower out for my new MIL...but that was at the end of the ceremony, so I don't know that anyone really noticed.

I love those kind of ideas. I had my florist divide my bouquet into 3 pieces so that at the reception I gave a part of it to my mom, a part of it to my FH's mom, and the other part to my grandma (who was the only grandparent that could make it). I think those type of things are the little things that make the event special....

Awwww, that's a cute idea!! My FMIL would love it, not sure my mom would care. She ain't the most sensitive woman around :-)

My cousin did this at her wedding and it was really special. Not a dry eye in the church!

I wanted to bump this. I have been looking for a way to honor my mom and my MIL all day on here and finally found this and it’s perfect.

 

Now that I have the idea, I need to figure out exactly how I will do it. I want to hand the flowers to my mom and MIL myself, but do I walk up the isle, kiss my dad, and turn around and hand the flowers to them and turn back to face my FI? Will everyone get what I am trying to do? Hmmm…….

    • Good afternoon, I wanted to inquire if anyone has or knows someone who got married at this resort. How was it? How are the coordinators? Packages that were chosen. Any help would be greatly appreciated.   Thanks.
    • Hi all! I know this is an old thread... but just in case there are other destination wedding brides out there with the same question, I thought I would answer! My guy and I live in Texas and just got our marriage license (yay!). We are getting married in Playa del Carmen, Mexico. The Dallas County clerk informed us that we can get our marriage license in Texas, bring it and a Texas-registered officiant to Mexico, have the ceremony in Mexico, then bring the marriage license back to Texas to file and it will be LEGAL in the US.  In  other words, we can legally get married in Mexico using our Texas marriage license and officiant (who is a family friend), then file the paperwork when we get home. Where it says 'county in which ceremony was performed' on the license, we just put in Playa del Carmen, Mexico and bam! Married :) I do not know if this is true for other states, but it is CONFIRMED for Texas! I suggest asking the clerk when you register for your marriage license. I am overjoyed that we can have a US-legal marriage in Mexico so our wedding date on our license will be the actual day! NO blood tests, or getting married before or after the trip required!  
    • Every Bride spends a lot of time researching and worrying about her perfect wedding dress. While many Indian brides choose the traditional red colour for their bridal gown, a few of them find some different colours to wear on their special day. Here is a description of how to choose an Indian wedding dress that suits your skin tone. 1) Fair complexion: You can choose any shade of blue or bright shades of pink and red. In the shades of blue- select scuba blue or royal blue. Among other colours this season, you can pick up your dress in tangerine.   2) Wheatish complexion Just select those colours which bring out the warmth in your complexion. Some of the best options for you are tangy orange, saffron yellow, vibrant shades of red, mint green and hot pink.   3) Dusky complexion: If you have an olive skin tone, then you can pull off any rich and dark colour quite well. So, the colours like classic blue, marsala, burnt orange and brick red are just perfect for you. Also the metallic silver, gold and bronze will even flatter your face pretty well
    • I will be using the hPage Website Builder to create a free website for our wedding. I am planning to post wedding updates, wedding photos, wedding reminders, and wedding articles regarding our upcoming marriage there. For RSVP, I am using Facebook events since almost all we invited have facebook and it would be easier to get their "yes" or "no" confirmation there. In case anyone is interested as well here's their site: hPage Website Builder - https://www.hpage.com
