There are no apt words that can truly describe the sacred, special and emotional relationship between a mother and her daughter. It is special beyond bounds and is one that can never fade away, let alone die. But there comes a moment in every mother's life where she feels helpless beyond limits but happy at the same time as her daughter is going to enter a new phase of life.
Yes, that moment when her daughter is about to get married! And because sometimes, she isn’t able to explain it well, we get you the most important and natural things every mother feels (expressed in her own words) when her daughter is about to get married.
It feels like yesterday when we got her home from the hospital and look ay her now; all grown up, young, beautiful, successful and outgoing. How I wish that time would cease right here and right now!
It is difficult to even imagine not having our baby girl around in the house from now onwards. It will be a silent and dull place to live in but we have to get used to it. Wish she would visit us as often as possible.
She knows the difference between right and wrong. She has been making significant decisions up till now and this time too, she has certainly made the right one. We couldn’t have asked for a better, more caring and loving son-in-law.

We have given her good values all through her growing up years. The way she respects elders, finds the good in everything and treats everybody as equals will help her a lot in her new family. She will be a great companion to her husband and a daughter to her in-laws.
However well to do her new family might be, however plus her husband’s job might be, I wish she always goes out and work. Working will not only give her a way to save but also the correct exposure to keep up with the changing times. That will make her self sufficient, confident and independent as well.
She might not know this now, but whatever be the situation, her father and I will always be there to guide and support her. She always has a strong support system in us and she will realise that soon.
I will never encourage her to spill out her family issues and secrets and neither influence her in any inappropriate manner against her husband or in-laws. She is a smart girl. She will find ways to resolve her own problems while maintaining good and pure relationships with all.
She has been raised a strong thinking, confident and practical person. She knows not to avoid but to find solutions. If life throws her difficult times, she will find the right solutions, but I will be there behind her to guide her towards the just path.
All her life, we have done what is absolutely best for her and she deserves just that in her new family too!
No matter how old she becomes or how far she might go, for us, she will always be a small little child who played in our laps. We will always support her like we did when she was small. We will try our best to keep all that’s evil and negative away from her and let only the good reach her.
As her parents, that is the only thing we wish for every day when we wake up in the morning for our entire lives- a happy, peaceful and blissful married life!
While you enter into the most pious and sacred institution of marriage, always remember that giving up or avoiding difficult situations is not the answer. Learn to accept your own mistakes, learn to be forgiving, express gratitude and believe in each other. You need to always work on your marriage in different and simple ways to keep it a happy and everlasting one.
Well, after all that we have done for you, it is certainly our right to have lots of grandchildren to fill up our empty houses with cheer and joy yet again!
And lastly, your life will be as fairytale like or complicated as you wish for it to be. The choice is yours; whether you want to ignore insignificant and petty issues and be grateful for what you have or you want to crib, fight and be miserable for nothing at all.
It is truly said that because God could not be present everywhere and all the time, he made parents. They might seem annoying when they restrict us or scold us but when time changes and we ourselves become parents and step into their shoes, we realise how right they were in doing whatever they did. It is because of them that we are what we are today. So if you know anyone whose daughter is about to tie the knot or you yourself are going to get married, make sure you tag your mommy, and all the others you know!
