10 ways to make your mother feel special | CHWV

If your wedding falls on Mother’s Day make sure you have plans in place to make your mother feel extra special on your day.

Today might be Mother’s Day, but your mum deserves to feel special all year round, particularly on your wedding day. From dedicating part of the day to mum, to showering her with thoughtful gifts, there are plenty of ways to say thank you.

1. Wear something borrowed from mum on the big day

Wearing a piece of your mum’s jewellery, or carrying her handkerchief with you on your big day is sure to make her feel truly involved. Whether it’s your something old, or something borrowed, she will feel chuffed to be part of your everlasting memories.

4. Transport her in style

While you’ll be chauffeured in style with your father, make sure you mum gets to arrive in style too. Perhaps she can join you for a family ride? Or if not, how about arranging a swish chauffeur-driven ride for all the women in your family, including mum.
