  1. These personalized gifts for the mother of the bride are absolutely gorgeous!

    Wedding day is “the day” for every bride who has waited for this moment to come in her life. And so, she becomes preoccupied with all the preparation, her gown, shoes, bouquet, and all that. Only to realize on her wedding day that her mother isn’t at her best.

    The bride is the star of the wedding, I get that. But her mother must not be ignored; she deserves to look her best too. 

    I am the youngest and only girl in our family of 5. I’m also the first one to get married. While I made sure my wedding dress was ready way ahead of time, I also made sure that my mom will love her dress and be comfortable in her entire “get-up.” I bought her a very pretty dress and sandals suited for the occasion. And she absolutely loves them. 

    No matter how hectic our schedule and tight our budget for the wedding are, let us make sure the mother of the bride, our mom, is happy with her outfit.

  2. I am the type of girl who is obsessed with shoes. I can’t tell you how excited I was when I learned about DREAM PAIRS Women’s Amore Fashion Stilettos Open Toe Pump Heel Sandals. These are the perfect personalized wedding gifts for this coming special day because they are unique, affordable, and, best of all – match the gown.

  3. This sound interesting. Where I am from the focus is mainly on the bride and groom. So we get gift for the bride and groom. No attention is given to the mother of the bride when it comes to gift giving. As we say here that’s bride and groom day. but I think it is a very good ideas to gift the bride’s mom.

    1. The Mother of the Bride should be treated exceptionally well especially from her daughter and future son. To make sure she is equipped the best for the wedding, is the least that they can do. That being said, there are other close members who could supply a small gift of appreciation too.

  4. Thank you so much for another great review!  Actually, I plan on getting married within the next year or two, and if I do, I know I will need to help my fiancee pick out some gifts for her mother and aunts, and the ElegantPark Lace Wedding Shoes look amazing and look like good shoes to wear for a wedding.

    Personally, if I had to choose between any of the products listed, I will get the Amanda Rose Collection Necklace.

    That one looks beautiful! 

    The dresses are nice too, but the necklace is the winner!

    How much does it cost? Does it ship to Hawaii?

  6. Very nice article on Personalized Wedding Gifts for Women: Mother of the Bride. The dresses, shoes and accessories were all very pretty. I enjoyed looking at all the beautiful dresses.

She will surely appreciate the gorgeous Kera women’s sleeveless beaded pop. Thank you for providing the links. They are affordable

    1. Yes, mother-in-laws love to receive gifts of appreciation, also. I dresses are very affordable and beautiful!

  8. Hi I was looking through your site and I tried to find your information so I could say hi with your name. It is probably my lack of searching your site but if not you may want to give customer’s a little bit of your bio. I think your ideas are great and  the different gifts that can be given will give a lot of insight to guests searching the wedding registry. Love the shoes one of my favorite categories to shop by as an older person now I have to stick with low heals. The only suggestion I would give is the layout of the dresses the pictures feel unbalanced and all over the place. Not sure if you were looking for that as a pop affect or not. Love what you do and you obviously have a knowledge and compassion for your niche. 

  9. Hey great post and a very useful one too!

    This is especially needed for me to read since I’ve been tasked to put together not only the footwear but also the whole outfit. I haven’t done this before so hopefully a little bit of research will help me get on my way.

    Thanks to this post I’ve got some idea of the footwear, most likely a sandal with some sparkles will definitely complement the dress.

    1. Yes, the Mother of the Bride deserves to be spoiled for all the help she has provided over the course of many years!
