Flowers for the mother of the bride
When we think about wedding flowers, we usually plan the décor along with the bouquets that the bride and bridal party will carry. It’s also worth considering the mother of the bride and the mother of the groom while you’re at it.
Presenting the mother of the bride with flowers is a lovely symbol of your appreciation for her love, support, and for raising you. If the groom wishes to present the flowers to the bride’s mother, then it can be seen as a token of his appreciation for raising the woman he loves. Many people agree that it is only appropriate to present the mother of the groom with flowers too. After all, she is the one responsible for raising the groom!
Now the next question is what kinds of flowers you should give to your mother and mother-in-law. You should by no means feel pressured to match the theme or colour scheme of the wedding. In fact, if you want their flower gift to stand out, you should choose flowers that are not the same as your wedding blooms.
It’s also a good idea to order two identical or similar bouquets. You wouldn’t want one mother to feel like they were not pampered as much as the other. If they have different favourite colours, you could order the same bouquet but in different colours to suit their preferences. In most cases, a mixed bouquet is the ideal option because it includes various colours as well as different textures.
When it comes to choosing the flowers, some of the top choices include roses, lilies, carnations, and chrysanthemums. Along with some lush foliage, even the most simple bouquet will look amazing. Make sure that you include a special message with the flowers and, if you like, you can write a brief speech as you thank both mothers in front of all the guests.
