        I saw this in a bridal magazine and it said that you give your mom the flower before your dad takes his seat, but i can't see that working either. don't know, plus would you say something to them out loud so that people understand what's going on?? maybe some recent brides that have done this can help us!! when i saw it in the mag, i thought it'd be really nice to do, but i just can't picture the flow of things, esp with FMIL before you walk up the aisle with hubby...won't everyone be excited and clapping? then FMIL wouldnt get the same attention as your mom....

        clearly i wasn't much help lol!!

          LOL, I am hoping someone who has done it chimes in. I want to give both flowers to both moms at the same time before the end of the ceremony but I just can't figure out how.

            I too will have my mom walk me down the isle and love this idea. I was thinking of tying the 2 bouquets to mine and giving them to the moms after the ceremony before we walk down the isle as husband and wife.

              so glad this got bumped!
              i love the idea and really want to hear from some brides that did this and made it work!
              in my mind i picture stopping at the first row with my dad, presenting the flowers to my mom, and then continuing on with my dad the last few steps to where FH's is and dad actually "gives me away"....then at the end i am clueless! dont want to do it after the kiss because as mentioned people are going to be clapping and excited so the moment could be weird....so when do you do the FMIL? I certainly could not incorporate it into the actual ceremony - my mother would be so jealous! OR - does the groom take the other part of the bouquet after bride arrives and present to his mom himself before the actual ceremony starts? HELP!

                What a beautiful way to honor the mothers! My mother is going to be hysterical though, so I don't know if I want to add anything else lol. She has been crying since we got engaged last year! We're having 2 poems read, so I think we're going to ask my mom and his mom to read them.
