Do Not Forget about Mother of the GroomAs mother of the bride, you have probably dreamed of your daughter’s wedding virtually from the day she was born. But, it is important to remember that you are probably not the only one who has been waiting for this big day. 

The mother of the groom has probably cherished many dreams for her own son’s wedding, and an excellent way of cementing your future relationship with this important person is to make headway at the very start.

Try to get in touch with her to share your excitement for the big day pretty much as soon as the engagement is announced.  You may even want to get together with her to chat about the proceedings, and you will do well to get a feel for how involved she wants to be in the wedding planning process. You may also want to discuss your mutual ideas on how to dress for the wedding, as this sets a nice touch for the MOB and MOG to be complimentarily dressed.

Be interested in her ideas – and get her ideas on the wedding preparations. Even if you are not part of the planning yourself, call her to share your excitement as each detail is finalized and shared with you.  Small gestures like this will go a long way in setting the tone of your future relationship. Good luck!
