I’m going to give you the standard “it’s your wedding… so if that is what you want, go ahead and do it” answer.

Personally, I think it’s adorable and will truly show the special bond between you and your mother. I don’t think it’s any different than moms who get married and have their children stand up next to them!

I don’t think you really need to incorporate the silver…although the ribbon wrapped around the bouquet is a nice idea. It’s really lovely you’re asking your mom to stand up for you like that, though. I actually asked my mom and she turned me down (the nerve! Ha!).

@RoyalPurpleBride:  haha, yeah – she said while she really appreciated me asking, she wanted the day to be about me (and FI) – she said people would talk too much about how sweet it was that she stood up with me. LOL – I think she just didn’t want to have to stand up in front of everyone the whole time!

Awwww… I asked my mom to be my Matron of Honor too.  She’s the most important woman in my life and my best friend.  Sorry she said no. 🙁

I asked my Mom too, but she said it wasn’t her place – she was the mother of the bride!

 

Silver and plum will look fantastic next to eachother, and even if it doesn’t – who cares?  the woman you wanted most was up there with you!
