Here's Our Rundown of Mother of the Groom Duties

Not sure where the mother of the groom fits in? If she wants in on the action, there's plenty of tasks for her to help out with.

These days, both moms take on significant roles in the planning process, especially if the two families are splitting wedding finances.

No matter the case, here's what's typically expected of the mother of the groom.

After calling your parents to congratulate them and express her happiness, she can offer to host a dinner to introduce you and your family to anyone on your fiancé's side of the family you may not have met.

After asking how many guests she's able to invite, she can draw up the guest list for her side of the family and, if appropriate, offer financial assistance if it makes sense.

If there are any family or ethnic traditions that should be incorporated into the ceremony or reception, she should help the groom choose those too.

If possible, the groom's mother should attend the bridal shower and buy a gift.

Figure out day-of fashion with the mother of the bride.

Traditionally speaking, the mother of the groom is responsible for planning and hosting the rehearsal dinner with the grooms' father the night before the wedding.

If you're planning on having a receiving line, the mother of the groom should stand in it after the couple.
