Moments with Mom: Celebrating the Woman Who Raised You On Your Wedding Day

Raise the curtains for the ultimate stars — your mom, stepmom, grandma, and mother-in-law who’ve mastered the art of unconditional love, patience, and perhaps, tolerating our less-than-stellar teenage years. As you prepare to say “I do” to a lifetime of adventures with your soulmate, let’s script a tribute that these leading ladies will never forget. At Flora D’ Amore, we’re brewing up a storm of ideas to ensure your wedding celebrates and honors your mommas as you begin a brand new chapter in your love story. Get ready for some fun, creative, and deeply touching ways to put the spotlight squarely on the moms who’ve shaped your world.

Have Her Help You Get Ready For Your Big Day

Step into the pre-wedding hustle with the best sidekick ever — your mom! She’s on hair, makeup, and everything else in between, proving no one knows your style better. But let’s spill the real tea: it’s not just about achieving that “wow” factor (though let’s be honest, you’ll be turning heads). It’s those laughs, the shared looks in the mirror, and her reassuring nods that say, “You’ve got this.” This prep time is a series of moments that stitch your bond even tighter. Trust us, these memories? They’re the real wedding day glow-up.

Use Her Favorite Flowers in Your Bouquet

Was your mother’s garden the talk of the neighborhood growing up? If tulips marked the start of spring and roses the height of summer, pay homage to these blooms on your wedding day. Infuse your bouquets, boutonnieres, centerpieces, and other arrangements with the spirit of mom’s garden by choosing her favorite flowers. It’s an ode to those petal-packed days, marrying the nostalgia of your family’s roots with the fresh excitement of your future. A true blend of heritage and celebration, all in bloom.

Have Your Florist Make Her Custom Wearable Flowers

Your bouquet may take center stage, but let’s make sure your mothers aren’t blending into the crowd without a few bespoke floral accessories. For all the important moms who are there to support and celebrate you, elegant corsages, mini bouquets, or other pieces of floral artistry designed with love just for them is a timeless tribute. Work with your florist to ensure each piece reflects her style and your wedding aesthetic.

Involve Her in Your Wedding Traditions

Step aside, tradition–it’s time to honor mom on your wedding day! Put a modern spin on an age-old custom and ask her to walk you down the aisle to the love of your life. Or, elevate her role to officiate your marriage, embedding her in the very essence of your “I dos.” The reception calls for both mother-son and mother-daughter dances that promise to be a highlight of the night. And for the wedding must-haves of something old, new, borrowed, and blue, mom is your ultimate guide to getting it just right.

Give Her the Bridal Bouquet After the Ceremony

As the dust settles on your ceremony and your reception kicks into high gear, take a moment for an extra special toast to the woman who’s been your rock. Whether in public or private, gift her your wedding bouquet or boutonniere as the ultimate keepsake and token of your love and gratitude. It’ll be a moment that’s equal parts sweet, thoughtful, and memorable, reflecting the endless love and friendship you share.
