The musings of a Mother of the Bride

Posted: 2 February 2023

Ever wondered what your mum is thinking in the run-up to and during your wedding? We spoke to our. mum who said she went through a range of emotions:


  • Excitement – from the moment my daughter found the One (dress, not husband, although I was delighted about that too). 
  • Worry – is my daughter doing the right thing? Is she too young? Has she bought her dress from the right place? Have we saved enough to give a meaningful contribution? 
  • Nostalgia – I loved my own wedding day – I wish I could do it again. 
  • Pride – I have raised a fully-fledged human who can organise a wedding day for many people. 
  • Regret – I wish my eldest had tried on more wedding gowns instead of buying the first one she saw. 
  • Confusion – there’s a lot of choice for Mother of the Bride outfits – I want my daughter to be proud of me.
  • Tears – of happiness when I saw you walk down the aisle – thank goodness for waterproof mascara! 
  • Joy – the joy of watching my daughters become the people they’re meant to be, the joy of seeing a strong independent woman emerge from the little girls I raised.
