Help & Advice for the Mother of the Groom

In the eyes of any mother, the moment that their son becomes a groom, is one of the proudest moments in your life. This is your son, who you’ve raised to be not only a great man, but a loyal husband and no doubt a father some day too. Every proud mother wants to be involved in their offspring’s wedding day and of course this includes the planning leading up to the event too.

Tradition vs Today

Traditionally the mother has shouldered a lot of responsibility for the smaller things that make the wedding run without any hitches. However, now it’s much more common for both mothers and families to be equally involved in the organisation process. Don’t assume you should follow the traditional path of letting the mother take the lead, check with the bride and groom to find out what involvement they are hoping for from both sides of the family. Wedding planning is the perfect excuse to get to know the bride’s family a bit better before the big day.

Here at Compton House of Fashion we understand how stressful it can be taking on the responsibilities involved with being the mother and we also understand that you want to do right by your son and your future daughter in-law. The main bit of advice that we have to pass on, is that it is your son’s day. This simply means no matter what you’ve dreamed about when thinking about your son’s wedding; your thoughts on locations or colour scheme, in the end it’s the choice of the couple that should be priority. Something that a lot of mothers are unprepared for, is the possibility that the couple have envisioned an entirely different type of wedding to what you expected. Destination weddings in tropical locations are becoming very popular, and many people opt for a smaller, more intimate wedding with only close family.

Looking Your Best

Along with helping to organise different elements of the day, such as arrival times of cars and photographers, as mother it is also important that you look your best, without outshining the bride, or clashing with her mother.
