Weddings are a most memorable day for everyone involved. You will do lots of planning including your dress, jewellery, grooms attire, celebrant, guest list, venue confirmation, hiring of wedding photographers, gifts, your honeymoon etc, and no doubt dreams about your future. In between all this, have you thought about your parents involvement in your life, because without them you would not be at this point in your life.
Parents are the ones who will always be here for us during good and bad times. They offer advice without any charge or expectations. They are the ones who always pray for our welfare, so how can we thank them on our special day?
It’s a general tradition parents give gifts to the newly wedded couple, be it helping to pay for the wedding, or something for your new home. Maybe plan a surprise for them to show your gratitude for what they have done in your lives.
Here are some ideas we can suggest, as wedding photographers who have seen it all, to show your love and thanks to your parents:
Special Photo Shoot for them: You can involve them in your pre-wedding photo shoot. You could also hire a professional Queensland wedding photographer for an individual shoot.
Surprise them with a gift: From your childhood days, you have received gifts from your parents. Now it’s your turn to surprise them with a personalised gift on your wedding day – a special piece of jewellery perhaps.
Attach a charm to your bouquet: After your beautiful dress your bouquet is the second thing people notice. Attach a photo of your parents in a charm to it, they will love this sentiment.
A special dance with their favourite song: You can also plan to play perhaps their wedding song, or favourite song, for them to dance to, and see the happiness on their faces for including them.
Photo collage of your childhood: You must have a good collection of photographs from your childhood. You can revive the memories by making a collage of these on a board at the entrance to your reception. Your wedding photographers will capture this board forever in your photos.
A holiday for them: Perhaps plan a holiday for them – even just a fun weekend away somewhere they love. This will give them time to relax after helping create your wedding day.
Your parents do not expect anything from you. They just want your love and attention but some small thanks will give them endless happiness.
