My mother has always been one of my best friends and she has helped me so much in planning my wedding! I think it's a shame that on my actual wedding day, she is expected to take a back seat (my dad gets recognition in the father/daughter dance, my FH's mom gets recognition). I'm trying to come up with some way to tribute my mom during the wedding ceremony or during the reception. I want her to know how much I've appreciated all she has done for me, not only for the wedding, but also while I was growing up.
How do people feel about a mother/daughter dance in addition to the traditional father/daughter dance and mother/son dance? Does anyone have any other ideas that may be a nice way to include her and basically pay tribute to her?
