If you're at all like me, then your parents have played a major part in your life and you owe them the world. They've been with you every step of the way from attending every high school sporting event to seeing you off to college and, in my case, helping me move to a different state for my college internship.
Needless to say, it only feels right to thank them for helping me get to this major milestone: my wedding day. I want to take the opportunity to remind them that they no matter what, they will always be just as important to me.
Just in time for Mother's Day and Father's Day, here are a few sentimental gestures to show Mom and Dad just how much they mean to you:
Before the Wedding
1. While registering, your mother might have mentioned what she would register for if she could do it again today. Take her up on that hint and surprise her with whatever it was she was wishing for. She'll love it!
On The Big Day
2. You'll be showered with gifts and special gestures all day — pay it forward for those closest to you! A hand-embroidered handkerchief with a special message is a lovely (and useful) gift, as is a special piece of jewelry, such as a necklace or cufflinks.
