Responsibilities of the mother of the bride:
Most importantly, be an attentive listener, an enthusiastic supporter and a constant source of compliments and encouragement.
Make sure your daughter and her fiancé understand what they can expect from you financially; and discuss what the total budget is so you can compile a reasonable guest list.
Ask your daughter to accompany her in finding her dress, as well as all of her accessories. It is the best mother-daughter shopping trip of them all. If you aren’t local, video chat!
Ask your daughter what she would like you to wear, then select your mother-of-the-bride dress as soon as possible. Contact the mother of the groom to coordinate.
Moms are great to follow up with the invitations and responses, and to get an accurate guest count. She can also be in charge of booking blocks of hotel rooms for out of town guests; and airport transportation if necessary.
