What if during the toast you get up and say a few words thanking everyone for coming and saying a few nice things about your mom and how much you appreciate her?

Would you consider making it a joint dance…  Start with father/daughter and half-way though switch with your mother?

My wedding bouquet was orange and white calla lillies, with ONE single yellow  rose in the middle. My moms sister, whom she was very close too, and who has passed away favorite color was yellow, so I told my mom I was going to have one yellow flower in my bouquet for my aunts memory. My mom was super touched.

I too wanted to do something very special for my mom, to have that moment with her like I did with my dad before walking down the aisle and our father/daughter dance.

After the father/daughter dance, I had the DJ call my mom onto the dance floor with me. I took the yellow rose out of my bouquet and presented it to my mom and placed it in an engraved vase. It was a very touching moment.

@galloway111:  Haha no you don’t have to…I didn’t! But I think typically either the bride or groom gets up during the toast and says thanks for coming blah blah. Sometimes it is one of the parents that does that if they paid/are hosting.

@galloway111: Your mom is a wonderful person and you can do whatever you like. Be happy that you have her and cherish these moments.
