Since its Mothers Day, it reminds me of next year! Next year Mothers Day falls the day after my wedding. I would somehow like to honor Mothers in general at my wedding (not just my own but the guests too). Many people will be traveling for our wedding, and I just think its nice to honor them. I was thinking of carnations or some flour with a little poem attatched to give out to all the mothers? Any other ideas?

Rose ceremonies to honor the bride and groom’s mothers are common in wedding ceremonies. We have taken the wording for a rose ceremony and changed it a bit to honor our parents since I feel that our fathers were also very important to our growth and upbringing.
Just google wedding rose ceremony and you will get a lot of different wording options!

we are combining traditions in our wedding and doing a homage to mothers by playing ave maria and giving our respective mothers small nosegays while its playing. its a play on the blessed mother portion of catholic weddings ( my fh is catholic im baptist). Our wording during the ceremony is this:
Before we go on to say more about love, it is important to recognize from where love comes in our lives. Of course, someone first loved Bride and Groom. Someone cared for them as children, showed them what love, compassion, kindness, and care means. The work of our mothers are critical in preparing us to be the loving adults we are, so today, Bride and Groom want to make special recognition of their mothers, for making today possible. I speak for everyone here when we say “Thank You.”

My mom is incorporating pieces of old wedding dresses from my grandmother’s and my FI mom and step-mom into our chuppah [link removed], which will cover us at our wedding. But, there are lots of things you could do. What about having pictures of important mothers framed on your guest-book table? Asking your officiant to thank the mothers (and fathers) as part of your ceremony?

During the reception you could ask that in honor of Mother’s Day you wish that all mothers would stand up so you and the other guests could thank them for all the hard work and dedication they have givien their families.
