My mom was with me before the ceremony.

I never heard that mothers are not supposed to be with the bride. I would just tell you mom how much thier means to you. Who cares what the aunts think?

I can’t speak for every wedding, but the only time I’ve experienced a bride not having her mother with her prior to the wedding is when the mother caused more stress than she alleviated.

Never heard of that before. I’ve seen a ton of pics too where moms are there for the getting ready part (one the parts I’m most looking forward to!). I know my mom will. Maybe tell your mom how important it is to you. Maybe the “tradition” has something to do with the father/daughter thing because some brides choose to ride to ceremony with just daddy? Good luck!

I’d tell your aunts to kindly shove it. Momma is with me getting ready- period.

Make a slideshow of professional photographs of brides and moms getting ready together. And ask your aunts where they came up with this and please stop misinforming your mom!

My mom literally didn’t leave my side from 11 AM until she walked me down the aisle! She sat with me for hair and makeup, helped me get my dress on, did my corset, put in my veil, helped with my shoes…she literally did everything for me. Your aunt may have heard that tradition, but it’s totally up to you and your mom!

I honestly never heard of this nor I have seen this happen.  Traditions or not, I would rather have my mom by my side through the whole thing.  I don’t care what others think.  You should kindly tell your aunts they can choose to miss out on their daughter’s weddings all they want, you are not gonna let your mom miss out these moments 🙂

I’d definitely have your mom there.  I wish I had photos of me getting ready with my mom.  They would be wonderful, especially since she’s no longer on this earth.

I wouldn’t be able to get ready without having my mom there with me, that’s really strange that they would say that.

Your aunt is looney. My mom is gonna be there helping me get my dress on and fluffing it out, bustling for the reception, etc.

I’ve never heard of a mom NOT being in the room!!   I’d normally ask if it was a specific cultural thing, but if you’d never heard of it, I’m guessing not?  How strange that your aunt would even feel like she needed to get involved in that…  even if she felt that way, wouldn’t it still be up to you and your mom alone??
