Christine Miller, owner of LiBella Wedding Planning and Design, appears on Studio 5 with practical solutions on how to make the Bride’s Wedding Day special.
What is the most important thing you can give a bride on her wedding day?
Mother of the Bride:
Focus on your daughter’s needs and not yours
Add little touches to help her out (make-up, quick fixes, safety pins)
Be supportive with lots of warmth and hugs
Get someone to help you so you can be by your daughter’s side all day without having to worry about details, i.e. reception, etc.
Mother of the Groom (mother-in-law):
Be there to support both the bride and the groom
Treat your daughter-in-law as you would your own daughter
Surprise her with a small significant gift
Kind gestures will mean a lot to your son as well as his new wife
Great time to hand down a special family heirloom
Write a special letter to her on her wedding day about your hopes and dreams for her or special advice on marriage that she can receive only from you
Let her know how proud you are of her
Best Friend (can also be Maid of Honor):
Help with any last minute emergencies
Let her know you are there for her
Before wedding – a bridal showers
Neighbors and Other Friends of the Bride:
Ask bride beefore wedding if there is anything you can do to help
Offer to help transport gifts from reception to bride’s parents home
If brides new home is in your neighborhood, offer to check on home while they’re on honeymoon
Bring dinner or cookies when they return from honeymoon to welcome them to the neighborhood
Special Idea for Friendsfor After a Ceremony:
Celebration Wedding Wands
Celebration Wands are a fun and unique way to congratulate the bride and groom at the end of any ceremony or at their grand exit after the reception.
The celebration wand was created for any occasion, especially weddings where no noisemakers or objects can be thrown. The wands are personalized for your event by allowing you to select the color of the ribbons used on the wands.
Wand stick 12″ wooden dowel or any type of round stick from your local craft store
Attached ribbons each 24″ long in (4) colors
Rhinestones (at least 1 per wand)
Hot glue gun or tacky craft glue
The wand is wrapped with 6 strands of ribbon that hang from it. There is also a rhinestone at the top of the wand where the ribbon strands are attached.
Start with the wand handle ribbon color – This is the largest part of your wand and it is what the guests hold on to. We suggest the color of the wand to be White, Ivory, Black or Chocolate Brown. Attach the ribbon on the handle with your craft glue and slowly twist the wand so that the ribbon wraps around and has completely covered the wand to the top. Trim, tuck and glue the ribbon.
Start attaching your accent ribbons on the top of the wand with the glue in this order.
2.5 ft. x ½ inch strands
2 ft. x ½ inch strands
1.5 ft. x 1/8 inch each
Once you have attached all your ribbons, you can now add rhinestones and other embellishments. Viola!
