Whether she’s the mother of the bride or mother of the groom, the day her child gets married is a major moment in a woman’s life. The mother has probably dreamt about her daughter or son wedding day since the moment they was born. And oftentimes, moms dive in head-first to help with the wedding planning process and be a source of support. We at Rea Danielle Designs can’t imagine going through the wedding process without them. In honor of Mother’s Day on May 10th, we created a list of special moments that a bride and groom may share with their mom!
One of the most important details in your wedding is your bridal gown! Dress shopping with your mom and future mother-n-law is definitely a joyous moment. We all value our Mom’s opinions, and it wouldn’t be the same if she wasn’t there to to help pick out the most important piece of clothing ever. It’s such an emotional day when a mom sees her little girl all grown up in the dress of her dreams, but be warned, happy tears might (will) be shed!
Once the big day rolls around, have your stylist also do your Mom’s hair and makeup. Afterwards, she can help you get into your dress and make sure everything is perfect!

This might be a job that’s usually reserved for Dad, but this mama’s got it covered! Watching Jasmine walk down the aisle on her mom’s arm brought immediate tears to our eyes.
