The CEO of bridal event planning has no doubt had almost a big a job to do as you, what with being in charge of co-ordinating the pre-wedding celebrations. Ensuring that bride (who is likely also her best friend) has the time of her ‘single’ life before tying the knot is a big responsibility. We all know how difficult it can be to co-ordinate the diaries of busy bridesmaids and finding a bridal shower date that works for everyone is just the tip of the iceberg! There might be outfits to create, hotels to book, gifts to buy and surprises to plan. That’s not to mention the bride’s nerves to soothe on the day itself.

You can help them look their cutest, whilst also giving them something sparkly to hold their attention with a gorgeously girly gift:
She’s been equally apprehensive and looking forward to this day since the day you are born. Her little girl is all grown-up and getting married, and it’s a major milestone in her life as well as yours.
Your mum is your champion. She’s the one who tended your scraped knees, nursed you through coughs and colds, chased away your nightmares and basically taught you to be the wonderful person your fiance wants to spend the rest of their life with. But a mother’s job is never done. She’s probably been the main adjudicator of dresses and venues and as the mother-of-the-bride she’s the perfect person to take charge of guest lists, RSVP’s and wedding contractors. Show her how much you love her with a really special wedding day present:
