It takes a strong and fearless woman to be a Mother. Your mom has been there through thick and thin, and helped you become the person you are today. Celebrate mom everyday, not just on Mother’s Day. A great way to make your lovely mother feel special is to include her in the wedding planning, and honor her on the big day.

5 Ways to Include Your Mom in the Wedding

1. Get the moms together during the planning process, and let them both be involved with some of the planning. (Photo via Haven’s Kitchen)

Guys: Men don’t normally get together to pick out the tuxedo, like girls do for dresses, so why not get the moms involved. Let your mom and mother-in-law help you pick out your tux in a fun “Say Yes to the Tuxedo” outing, and then treat them to lunch.

Ladies: Let your soon to be mother-in-law bake the Bridal Shower cake, or oversee the bridal shower games; while your mom works on the guest list and invites.
