Honoring Mom at Your Wedding

It’s Mother’s Day this weekend, and of course I’m running around thinking of special ways to honor my amazing mom and grandma. Sometimes it seems near impossible to pay your mom back for all her unconditional love and support, but even the smallest of gestures I’m sure will make her go all misty-eyed. What better time to show her some appreciation than at your wedding? Here are a few of my favorite ideas:

1. Have her walk you down the aisle!
If Dad is no longer in your life, don’t think you need to find a male replacement – mom can certainly do the job! Or another idea, have both your parents walk you down the aisle.

2. Give your photographer a shot list that incorporates a special moment with your mom.
Such as her putting your veil on, a first look in your wedding dress, or recreate a moment from her wedding day.

3. And, grooms don’t forget that your mom will always cherish her mother-son dance.
Since there are no rules when choosing a song for the dance feel free to think outside the box! As long as the song reflects your relationship with her, the dance will always be a sweet memory.

 Upcoming trends!

Upcoming trends include monogram projections on dance floors or walls. The great aspect of a patterned dance floor is that you can create the dance floor size of your choice instantly. Because you do not need to rent a dance floor at Vintage Villas, we can project the shape and dimensions of the allocated dance floor area with breakup patterns. This is amazing because we have over 800+ patterns to choose from – essentially that’s 800+ dance floor optional looks!
