While yes, a wedding day is primarily about the bride + groom, and they should definitely be the stars of the day, let's not overlook just how much work our parents do to make the day possible.
From forking over the bulk of the cash to make your dream wedding possible, to the hours they have spent planning making sure the day goes exactly as planned, to you know - raising you and stuff - They really have gone above and beyond. So here are a few quiet and thoughtful ways to surprise them and make them feel extra special on the big day.
Give your parents something unexpected! Get them a gift that is sentimental to tell them how much they mean to you and to thank them for everything they have done.
Surprise your parents when they enter the ceremony by having a custom handkerchief waiting on their seat for them. Inscribe a sweet message to make it even more personal. Trust me, they are going to need that handkerchief.
When it's finally time to party, surrise your parnets by having custom drink glasses waiting for them at the bar to make them stand out from the crowd.
Many couples choose to give a thank you toast at some point during the reception to thank guests for coming to celebrate with them. This is the perfect time to give your parents a special shout out!
Of course you will do the traditional father/daughter and mother/son dances, but at a random point in the night, find your parents and ask them to dance with you.
These moments are seriously the sweetest. Your dad is going to be overwhelmed with emotion when he sees you in your wedding dress for the first time. Make sure you take a few mintutes just the two of you to let it all soak in.
There's no better person to help you get dressed for your wedding day than you mom. This is the perfect part of the day to give you a big role and make her feel extra special!
