My mother in law won't be able to make our wedding on Saturday as she's unable to get about ATM so I'm thinking of giving her my wedding flowers as a gift she lives literally across the road from our reception venue so I'm thinking of running across after the wedding xx

I gave my mother in law a necklace with a pearl on with a poem that said thankyou for raising the man of my dreams and my husband gave my mum the same with a poem saying thankyou for raising the woman of his dreams, think we got them from notonthehighstreet.co.uk we also gave the bridesmaids little gift bags with pearl bracelets, dressing gowns, face masks and little bottles of prosecco (non alcoholic for my little niece) and had a little gift giving ceremony the night before the wedding before he went to stay at his mum and dads xx

We gave our mum's a rose bush, they bloom around the same time as our wedding so it's a lovely reminder they just aren't allowed to move now

We gave both mothers presents during the groom's speech. Bunch of flowers or good bottle of wine is always a Nic gesture :)

We are giving presents out after the speeches but, my mother is walking me down the aisle so I'm getting her a Pandora bracelet to give before we walk down. Inside will be a message saying "today a bride, tomorrow a wife, forever your daughter. Then after speeches I will have her the first charm for it which will be wedding related
