The mother of a bride has typically many things on her shoulder. Hiding the pain and excitement in her heart, she decides to move on and take responsibilities of many things in her hand so that the wedding ceremony completes uninterruptedly and the guests can have a joyful experience during the whole event. Every mother finds joy in the happiness of her daughter. So it’s time when she has to make sure her daughter can engrave every little memory of this beautiful moment in her heart. The first thing a mother should think about is finalizing the budget.
Wedding Budget Preparation by Mother Of The Bride
Depending on the fund available, the whole event can be planned. The most vital part would be deciding the venue, hiring an event organizer and choosing a wedding dress. These three things can swallow a big chunk of the fund. This is why the bride and her mother should work on the budget well in advance so that no last minute hassles can create nuisance at the end.
Choosing Her daughter’s Wedding Outfit and Venue
Every girl wish to look as beautiful as possible on this special day of her life. For all girls, her wedding dress means a lot. A mother can help her daughter choose the outfit, take pictures of different designs and show her, or at least can take her to the best places where she can find things of her choice. Similarly, she also can help her daughter figure out the wedding venue. The wedding venue has to be perfect and should be able to accommodate the numbers of guests expected. A mother taking pre-wedding arrangement responsibilities of her daughter should list the numbers of expected guests in advance so that the venue can be booked accordingly.
Can Coordinate the Entire Event
There are too many things that need to be coordinated and arranged during a wedding ceremony. The mother of the bride responsibilities may include being the contact point for all the professionals hired for the event. She can communicate, instruct and guide the caterer, florist, receptionist, musician, the event organizer and also keep a track of the payments which can easily skip the mind of the busy bride.
Manage and Look After the Guests
For a bride, it’s a moment of sheer joy and excitement. She can’t keep up with the every little wedding formalities and arrangement requirements. This is why the mother should stand by her daughter’s side and offer an extended help. She can make stay arrangements for the relatives and guests who will attend the long awaited event, for example. Similarly, she can instruct the event organizer about how welcome the guests, decorate the tables and serve foods to make them feel comfortable.
She should make sure the wedding etiquette has been followed to keep things in order and complete the ceremony with pride and honor. Any unforeseen event should be taken care of with immediate attention. This is how a bride’s mother can help her child start a beautiful journey along with the person she loves most.
