A wedding is a special day for the whole family, so what can be better than combining some sentimental elements into your special day that can be cherished forever.
Your Mother’s Wedding Dress
If you’re a bride to be going to pick a dress, bouquet or venue, you may want your mum to be with you and share the moment. However, if your mother still has her dress and is happy to donate part of it, it can accompany you on your wedding day too. A piece of lace from your mother’s gown can be used to make a garter, just add some embellishment.
Show Generations of Weddings
If you’re both close to your parents, take a photo of you and your spouse together after the ceremony, each holding a picture of your parents’ wedding day.
You could both try to re-create a favourite photo from your parents’ wedding, or alternatively you can take a photo of your wedding dress hanging up ready to be worn with a picture of your mum in her wedding gown in the background.
Make Your Parents Feel Special
Take a surprise photo on your wedding and give a framed version to your parents after the big day. Hold a chalkboard up with a message on it for them and show them you care.
Make your Dress Sentimental
Why not embroider your wedding date to the hem of your dress in blue thread for a sentimental something blue? Alternatively, if you’re particularly close to your Dad, for your something blue you can cut out a heart from one of his blue shirts and have it sewn somewhere onto your dress.
Surprise the Groom
Even though this will be the first time your significant other sees you in your wedding dress, and there will be plenty of surprises in the form of the best man’s speech, why not add a romantic touch to his getting ready experience.
Get an embroidered message in his pocket square or perhaps onto the back of his tie, which says how much you care and give him a boost of confidence before the wedding begins.
