1. Dress Shopping
Who is better than making sure you look your best than your mom? Have her be your plus one while wedding dress shopping. She is bound to give you honest feedback, and will probably tear up every time you come out of the dressing room.

2. Invite Proofreading
As tradition has it, wedding invitations technically arrive addressed from your parents. Have her give it a once-over to perfect wording and get her take on tasteful design. Plus, collaborating on these invites is an exciting way to jumpstart the wedding process together.
