Although I’m in the middle of planning my 2011 wedding, my attention is mostly on my best friend’s wedding (this September). Her mother (who isn’t internet savvy!) asked me if there was any traditions for the mother of the bride. Like if she’s suppose to help with anything, or present her daughter with a specific kind of gift, pay for something specific, etc. I’m an out-of-town MOH, so I’m helping where I can. We’re colaborating on the bridal shower and bachelorette party. But is there anything specific that the mother of the bride is suppose to do/can do?

Hmm, I think it varies with different people. I know for myself. My mother is just being very invovled and helping where she can, she is pretty much taking the stress off of me with things. She did buy me my bedding set, and my nightie wear for the night off, that’s tradtion in my family. She also bought me my jewerly and headpiece I’m wearing, she was the main planner with my shower, she involved my girls and all but she paid for it and gave direction to everyone.
I know for my GF’s wedding a year ago, her mother bought her her wedding dress, that was their tradtion, so like I said, just depends on the people I suppose and what your GF wants from her mother. I’m glad my mom is very invovled and helping me a lot, some people are different and want no part of that.
