The role of the Mother of the Bride is traditionally to organise many aspects of the wedding such as the reception, flowers, stationery and guest list. However now, the best way to look at your duty as a mother of the bride is to provide a supporting role for your daughter. This means helping on the things she asks you to do; while advice will be welcome it is important to let your daughter plan exactly how she wants her day to go. She will more than likely assign specific jobs for you to do and by asking how you can help will show your keenness to be involved without taking over. This may mean sitting down with your daughter in the early stages of planning to find out how she wants things and who she wants to do what as well as setting out exactly what you are willing to pay for to avoid confusion later on in the planning stages. Many mothers get confused as to what the Mother of the Bride duties are but the most important is to support your daughter. Make sure you are calm and optimistic for the bride to calm her nerves and ensure the smooth running of her day.
