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.

5. Placing the Veil

A time-honored tradition between mother and daughter, placing the veil is a beautiful moment to share. Mom can also help with any last minute hair touch ups, dress-fluffing and, of course, ridding of nerves.
