We're all daddy's little girls or mommy’s favourite boys forever - and it's important to remind them that on your wedding! With all the running around and the wedding madness, it's easy to forget to take out just a small moment to make your parents feel special and thank them for everything they ever done for you- right from bringing you to the world to organising the wedding of your dreams! So here are some cute little ways to thank your parents on your happy day!
Ask Them To Help You With The Planning

With most couples planning their own wedding or hiring planners to do it, parents can tend to feel left out. Have your parents plan one major wedding task and see how they feel so happy about it! Do they love food? Ask them to manage the menu tastings. Music lovers? Ask them to create a playlist for your sangeet night!
Personalise Their Favourite Elements As Well

Personalization is all about couples and their likes. But what if you can include your parents too? Have their favourite dish on the menu or have a signature cocktail created to reflect their personalities or liking. You can even name it after them!
Honour Them With Your Outfits

Usually a video montage is about the couple, so how about changing it up and doing it for both the sets of parents? We promise you misty eyes!
Dance With Them Or For Them!

If you are planning a sangeet, have a special performance only with your parents!
Include Their Initials In Your Wedding Monogram
Planning to get a wedding monogram designed? Include their initials too. It gives off the message in a classy and sophisticated manner.
Have A Memory Table

Showcase pictures of parents, grandparents, and other family members on your wedding day. Include a candle or flowers for those who can’t be with you. A memory table is a beautiful way to honour someone’s memory and have their presence with you as you take the next step.
Ask Your Mom To Help You Get Ready!
