So I read this really cute thing for both Groomsmen and Bridesmaid or Best Man, where after the bride walked to the end of the aisle she turned to her Mum and took a section of her bouquet and gave it to her and then at the end just before she walked out she turned to the GM’s and did the same.
I love this idea and wanted to replicate it but unfortunately I have one problem, the GM’s is arranging the flowers as she has done a floristry course!
As you can see this leaves me with a slight problem. So I was wondering if you could help me come up with an idea of something I could present to our Mum’s in a similar fashion, without either of them catching on. So needs to be something I can carry on me without anyone noticing or something one of my bridesmaids or Dad could carry for me.
Any help would be much appreciated! I just cannot think of anything 🙂

You could hang thsese little bird nest pendants around your bouquet and then give them to each mom. You could probably have them customized for each mom blue and pink eggs depending on how many kids she has. It could also symbolize family and your future hope for children. If you have children you could put one on there for yourself too.

I love that idea!! You could add charms to the bouquet and hand them out in simialr fashion. Or you could carry embriodered hankercheifs. You can have your Maid/Matron of Honor carry the one for the Groomsmen and you can carry the you for your mom. Have them embroidered with something sweet- that way they have a sentiment that they can keep!

@vintagefair: I actually love this idea, and had thought about doing it for both mothers and the flower girl. 🙂

I was at a wedding where the bride was given a single flower (plain roses) to her by special women in her life as she walked down the aisle, then she presented the bunch of them to her mother. It was really sweet. She did have a small bouquet made for pictures/tossing, too.

Thanks guys 🙂 i love the charm idea. The only problem is after speaking to Fiance he said that his mother isn’t likely to like it 🙁 maybe I will just have to keep thinking. I had thought about giving them each a locket with a picture of us both in it but supposedly his mum won’t like that either….
Why do parents have to be soooo fussy!? 😀
