The mother of the bride role is so important, both on the day and in the lead up to the wedding.
The father of the bride might get a lot of attention, thanks to the father of the bride speech, but from helping you pick your wedding dress to those last finishing touches on the day itself, your mum or step-mum will have been your rock.
If you can afford to, it’s lovely to save a little bit of wedding budget to be able to buy a small thank you gift for your mum – which you can give to her either before the wedding, during the speeches on the day or after the wedding.
