Mums. Basically, they’re absolutely amazing. If you’ve not really involved your mum in big day planning yet, here are six reasons why she could be the dream wedding planner you thought you'd never have…

7 SIGNS YOU'RE A WEDDING PLANNING NATURAL

1. She knows you taste
She’s known you your whole life, so it’s no surprise she knows exactly what you like and what you’ll hate (“she said NO white chair covers”). She’ll be able to communicate your vision perfectly to all your suppliers and keep everything on track.

2. She really wants to help
Finding you bridesmaids a bit lacking in enthusiasm? You need to speak to your mum pronto. She’ll be so excited to hear all about the details (even those little niggly ones your fiancé had the cheek to call boring) and she’ll be dying to help you sort out any wedding woes.

3. She knows how to get a good deal
She’s forever bragging about that bargain Whistles top, and how she managed to get her designer kitchen at half price. She knows a good deal when she sees one and if there’s any wiggle room in price, you can guarantee she’ll find it.

4. She gets stuff done
You’ve spent the last three months fiddling with your DIY table centrepieces and they still look like something your five-year-old niece brought home from play school. Give your mum an afternoon, a glue gun and some glitter, and she’ll get them looking like something straight out of a Liberty window display.

7 THINGS NO MOTHER OF THE BRIDE SHOULD EVER SAY

5. She won’t take any nonsense
The moment you start getting a bit teary-eyed about your napkins that aren’t quite the right shade or mint, or the fact that peonies aren’t in season yet, she’ll snap you out of it and help you to see the bigger picture.

6. She’ll always make time for you
Even if you ring her in the middle of the night over a panic dream about falling into the cake (it could happen!) she’ll be ready to listen and help soothe your worries away. Seriously mums are the best.
