I think that would be very nice ๐Ÿ™‚ If your mom is super shy though, I would run it by her. Just throwing out a couple ideas, when your mothers are being seated you could play a special song, you can also include them in your wedding program

I have seen couples do this at many weddings. Thank their parents in a speech that is! I think it is very touching. You can just stand and thank everyone for comming and thank your mom for everything with out pointing her out to everyone so she doesn’t feel the spotlight too much.

I think thanking her during a speech is the perfect time to do it. Or, if you’re doing programs, a few sentences about her on the back page?

You could always write something in the program (if you’re having programs) praising your mom, if you think that toasting her will make her uncomfortable.

will you have a rehearsal dinner? at one rehearsal i went to, they did a slideshow of pics–touching pics of the bride/groom as children growing up. during this they had tons of family pics—you could do them w/your sister and mother. then they also showed pics of the bride/groom dating. it was attached to a sappy song so by the end we were all in tears. then they also did thank you speeches to special people in their lives.

You could always leave a personal note on her seat at the ceremony, that she can read privately.
