It’s time for another Ask Emmaline question! We received this question from bride-to-be, Lana, who asks, “Dear Emmaline, I’m planning my wedding and my parents have been so helpful, especially my mom. She has been helping with every DIY detail, even taking some of the bigger projects (my centerpieces) to eliminate my stress. I want to thank my parents for all they’ve done for our wedding; any advice?” Fantastic question! You can never thank your parents enough for all of the wonderful things they’ve done for you, and your wedding is no exception. Whether they are contributing their time, money, support, or they’re just being totally awesome per usual, it’s important to thank your parents at your wedding. In this post, we’re sharing some of our favorites ways to thank your parents at your wedding PLUS we’re giving away one of our favorite finds by Paper Street Press!

P.S. This is a must-have photo! Pin this for later! (Hover mouse over photo and click ‘pin it’.)
