Ask your question
  • Go shopping with your daughter for an outfit. She will be able to help you pick something really nice and perhaps something that compliments the colour scheme if she has one

  • Not too sure what you are asking but if one of your children is getting married it can get quite overwhelming but just remember it is supposed to be a happy time so try not to stress. Talk to your child and ask them what they would like.

  • What is the actual question? Are you the bride or the mother-in-law?

  • Yes its tricky one my daughter just recently got married and yes its stressful am I wearing the right clothes etc but I found that the speeches and stuff more stressful then anything else

  • It may sound petty but also show the Bride what you are thinking about wearing. She may not like it & ask you to select something else if it doesn’t fit in with her photo colour scheme.

  • Definately double check with your daughter what she would like help with. I was just a maid of honour and to be honest did hardly anything as the bride wanted to organise everything the way she wanted it.
    Also if your saying a speech make sure it is short sweet 5mins max.
    It is so cringey when it goes on and on about pointless childhood stories.

  • Definitely discuss with your daughter what she expects from you. Brides are very savvy and tend to take care of most things themselves. After a chat with her, I am sure you will be calmer and have a better understanding of what is needed. You need to be able to enjoy the big day too!

  • Weddings are a time to be enjoyed. Maybe discuss wishes with the bride to be. It depends on formal or informal wedding.

  • Enjoy the beautiful day and just be yourself and embrace your family and friends! Best of luck!

  • I think just ask what your daughter wants you to do/needs help with that way you’re not taking over and stepping on anyone’s toes. Also you don’t have to over think things which will make you even more stressed out.

  • Can you expand on what is happening?

  • I think offering to help, and trying not to be intrusive or push your ideas on the couple, and being kind, are really the most important parts of mother of the bride etiquette. A lot is common sense.
