More About

This site is aimed at being a one stop shop for moms who find themselves planning for a wedding –
getting ready to dress as the elegant mother of the bride, or groom. 

About Us

Mother of the GroomThis site is run and written for by Julie Matthews, a mother of three grown up children. 

In the summer of 2008 my son, Martin, was married to Sofia and I enjoyed the wonderful experience of being the
mother of the groom- a real privilege!  I’m also loving being a mother-in-law to my lovely daughter-in-law,
affectionately known as “Fi”.

So, I was inspired to create a website based on my own experience, to help other moms prepare for their son or
daughter’s big day.  It was a lot of fun, but I felt that it could have been easier if I’d know what to expect
and had something to help me plan for my son’s big day.

I’m now looking forward to one day being mother of the bride at my daughters wedding!

This website was first created in January 2009, but is being continually updated. I hope it will be a useful resource to moms everywhere who are planning their daughter or son’s wedding.
