I was going to get married on May 9 (we moved the wedding date up to this past October) but, we were going to have a morning after brunch and include a little card or treat (a candle, bag of kisses, other women/mom related gifts) for the mom’s that were going to be there. That way it was not over looked and it was easier then tracking down pictures and making it hard because of the wedding an all.

I think if you mention the idea to some of your relatives they would be happy to help and hopefully take some of the pressure off of you.

I know it is different, but I had my graduation on Mother’s day. At brunch, all of the moms present received a rose. I have also seen the bride give her mother her bouquet to say thanks as opposed to the toss. You could have both mothers wear corsages to stand out, although I think most people do this anyway. You could also have pictures of each you and your fiance with your moms on display.

OMG – I’m a May 9th bride and didn’t even think of this – I’m a bad daughter!!  I love the roses/treats at the morning after brunch idea.  Now I guess I have to have a brunch…

I’m ALSO a May 9 bride, and we’ve tossed around a couple of ideas.  We’re not doing a planned morning-after event, but we are toying around with the idea of somehow honoring our mothers during the ceremony–a recognition of our mothers, if you will.  We had toyed around with this idea before we realized that mother’s day was the next day, because, and maybe it’s just me, but moms kind of lose out on wedding day recognition.  For a fairly traditional wedding, dad walks you down the aisle, dad gets the father/daughter dance…you know? So we had both wanted to do…..something.

A friend of mine has actually composed a fairly short poem that I was going to post here that honors mothers that we’re thinking about incorporating as part of our ceremony, since–without our moms–we wouldn’t be standing together on our wedding day. 

 Curious to know what the rest of you might be doing!
