Ah, your momma, the real MVP behind your epic journey from knee-high to newly-wed! Whether it’s your birth mom, stepmom, beloved grandmom, or your incredible mother-in-law, as you plan your dream wedding, pause for a moment to throw some serious love their way. They’ve cheered you on from the sidelines, wiped away every tear, and yes, even helped navigate your wild ride of fashion disasters — they deserve a beautiful “thank you.” At Griffin’s Floral Designs, we know a thing or two about celebrating these female icons. So, if you’re ready to honor them in the most epic way, dive in for some genius, thoughtful, and heartwarming ideas.

Have Her Help You Get Ready For Your Big Day

Hair? Stunning. Makeup? Flawless. The look on your mom’s face when she sees you all glammed up? Priceless. Let’s be real, making mom your #1 on the glam squad is the ultimate trust test, and she passes with flying colors every time. From the perfect cufflinks to the dreamiest gown, she’s all about making you look and feel like royalty. But it’s those heart-to-heart moments amidst the hustle that truly mean the most. Who knew getting ready could feel so emotional?

Use Her Favorite Flowers in Your Bouquet

Flashback to those days when mom turned the garden into a color explosion — spring was for tulips, and summer was all about roses. Remember that ever-present vase of peonies on the dining table? Let’s circle back to those memories by incorporating those same blooms into your wedding day flora. Tucking her favorite stems into your bouquet or pinning them to your suit is like a sweet and subtle nod to the past, a way to lace the fabric of your family’s love and nature’s timeless beauty into the heart of your celebration.

Have Your Florist Make Her Custom Wearable Flowers

Sure, your bouquet’s the center of attention, but let’s not forget about the VIP section — your mom! A bespoke corsage, a chic floral crown, or some avant-garde wearable flower art just for her is her badge of honor as the “Momma of the Moment.” By incorporating her style and your wedding day vibes, she’ll feel like the queen she is.

Involve Her in Your Wedding Traditions

Turn the spotlight on your mom by giving her a starring role on your wedding day. Whether she’s escorting you down the aisle in a fresh take on tradition or taking the helm as your officiant, she’ll be the heart of the ceremony. And let’s talk about the mother-son and mother-daughter dances — surefire tearjerkers at the reception. While we’re on the topic of tradition, enlist her in assembling the timeless quartet of something old, new, borrowed, and blue. Her touch will make those moments shine even brighter.

Give Her the Bridal Bouquet After the Ceremony

In the glow of your newlywed bliss and as the celebrations begin, there’s a unique and heartfelt way to show your mom just how much she means to you — offering her your wedding bouquet or boutonniere as an eternal keepsake. This thoughtful exchange marks your transition into married life while expressing your sincerest gratitude and endless love for her. It’s one of the most beautiful alternatives to the bouquet toss we have ever seen.
