Including the Mother of the Groom in Your Wedding Planning


Including your soon-to-be mother-in-law all starts with the moments after the engagement. After you say “I Do”, be sure to make it a point to call his parents as a couple to share the good news. This moment is just as special to his parents as it is yours.

Location Scout

Your mother-in-law can be a useful ally when it comes to finding the right venues for your rehearsal dinner, wedding, and reception. You don’t have to put her in charge of this, but asking for help in doing research could save you lots of time.

Point of Contact for Certain Vendors

When it comes to planning out your wedding, you could be working with lots of different vendors. It could get overwhelming for you to be the point of contact for every single one. Ask the M.O.G for help with this. An especially great idea if she can help you get a discount from a friend or reference.


The M.O.G. can also help out with calling any R.S.V.P’s that you’re waiting to hear back from. If you’re getting close to that final head count, and are still unsure about a few guests, put her on the job of tracking them down to get your answer. You’ll still have plenty to do and this is a great job for her to complete for you.
