Who Buys the Mother of the Groom Gift?

Typically, a groom will buy their mum a gift, but it's also a lovely gesture if their partner buys a gift for their future mother-in-law, too. This will show how much you both appreciate the mother of the groom and all the help and support she has given with wedding planning. 

When to Give the Mother of the Groom Gift?

"When you give the mother of the groom her gift is completely up to what works for you and what gift you decide to give," explains Zoe Burke, Editor of Hitched.

"If it is an item that she will need for wedding planning, such as a wedding planner book, weeks before the wedding day is advised. If it is a present that you think she would like to use on the wedding day, it's a lovely thought to give it to her on the morning of the wedding. A special moment alone together where you exchange the present will be a beautiful memory to have."

Does the Mother of the Groom Give Gifts?

The mother of the groom might decide to give her son and his partner a wedding gift or contribute towards an event, such as the honeymoon or if they are saving to buy a house. If the mother of the groom has helped with wedding planning, whether that be financially or emotionally, that is a gift in itself!
