Don’t forget the Moms!

Moms hold a special place in all of our hearts.  Some are sweet, some are quiet, and some are crazy (in a good way of course)…every mom is unique. One thing, however, is consistent across the board—they all love their children with a kind of love that only a mother can.  They have sacrificed a lot for us over the years and they never expect anything in return.  That’s why giving our moms gifts can be so fulfilling!  I know that at least in my family, my mom is always the hardest to buy for.  It’s not because she is picky or expensive, but because she only wants what she “needs.”  And she is very rarely “needing” anything around the time of major holidays.  This predicament often gives way to some of the most creative—and thoughtful—gift giving of all!

With Mother’s Day this past weekend, we are talking about wedding day gifts for Mom.  Here are some things to remember when picking out that perfect something:

Personalize it
You know your mother better than any website, store clerk, or even blog writer(!).  So get her something that she would like or use.

  • For the practical moms…Is she a huge coffee drinker? I don’t know many who aren’t.  Or maybe she prefers something a bit stronger?  These days you can say just about anything you want with a coffee mug or wine glass.  Wrap that together with a basket of her favorite goodies and you have a thoughtful gift that she can use over and over again!

  • For the moms who love their jewelry…Personalized jewelry can contain more than just a name or birthstone, it can have the potential to incite memories for years to come.  Do you two share a favorite quote or song lyric?  Have it engraved on a necklace or locket.  If she is one of those women who wear a bracelet with a charm for everything, add one to her collection with your wedding date and an “I love you” or “thank you”….

Which leads me to my next point…

Say thank you
Ultimately this gift is a small way to thank your mom.  More than likely she sat through dozens of dress fittings, helped you with your search to find the exact shade of lavender for your invitations, and is contributing a large sum of money to make sure your day is perfect. Perhaps the best way for you to do that would be a spa day for just the two of you; no wedding talk, just relaxing and catching up.

Lastly, don’t forget your mother-to-be
It is very important to also recognize your mother-in-law on this day.  She raised the man of your dreams after all! (Side note: you can get that put on a necklace!)  Same rules apply as above. If you do not know her interests as well as you would like, be sure to consult with your groom; that way you can still give her a personalized gift that she will love.

Happy Mother’s Day to all of you 
wonderful moms out there!

New Year…New Services…

Although 2015 is here and we are so excited about everything we have coming up this year, I do not want to forget about all the blessings that 2014 brought us!  We at Irene Tyndale Events want to take the time to thank everyone who was a part of such a great year, and also to recap a little of all that happened.

Irene Tyndale Events Team & Partnerships

In August of 2014, Shelby Conner was added to the team as an assistant and has since then been promoted to Day-of Coordinator and Social Media Content Manager.  With a degree in Business Management and a minor in English, Shelby has experience in social media and a lot of passion for weddings and events.  Just before the year was coming to a close, Avia Shelton joined the Irene Tyndale Team as an intern.  In addition to the growth of our event planning team, 2014 also brought many new exciting partnerships.  Robin Smith is now our Lead Floral Designer.  She holds quite the impressive resume from her time spent collaborating with some of the top names in the event design world in places like Los Angeles and New York.  We were also excited to bring on Abbria McWhite as our Wedding Stylist.  From fashion blogger to magazine editor, Abbria is a style expert who can guide any bride in any walk of life to her dream day.
