Introduction: "Mother of the Bride" Kit

Anyone that has been around a mother of the bride knows there are often a lot of stresses that come along with planning a wedding for your daughter. My friend recently was the mother of a very opinionated bride, so I thought I'd make her a "Mother of the bride kit" to make light of her situation.

Step 1: Pill Bottles

I went to my local pharmacy and asked if I could buy a few empty pill bottles for a craft project. They actually just handed them over at no cost which was awesome.

I made my own labels to put on the bottles, using one of my old prescriptions as a template. It would have probably looked better on the computer but I didn't want to take the time to get the sizing right so I just wrote out everything by hand. I filled each bottle with colored 25 cent candy I got from the store

The labels on the pill bottles read as follows:


Neighborhood Pharmacy
Rx# 652300941


Nancy (Last Name)
(Nancy's address)


Take 1 or 2 capsules by mouth as needed for PATIENCE


PATIENCE 500 mg TAB qty 50


no refills
EXP (day after wedding)


*I did 5 different "medications." Patience, cheerfulness, endurance, compromise, and composure

Step 2: The Rest

Then on the other items I put notes with applicable sayings.

On the Nips I put "If a new problem arises, take one of these to 'nip' it in the bud."

On the Andes Mints "For when you need to just vent to your husband 'ande' just doesn't want to listen anymore"

On the Lindt Chocolates "Feeling a little blue because you can't seem to get everything done? Take one of these & you'll feel better in no time"

And on the gold coins "To help with the last minute expenses sure to come your way."

Step 3: The Reaction

My friend got a good laugh out of the whole thing, so I guess it served its intended purpose. It was a great low-cost, creative gift

This is great. If there's one person besides the bride I will want to keep happy at my future wedding, it is the mother-in-law-to-be. Thanks!

Excellent idea and quite applicable to other occasions too. I particularly like the prescription for "Patience".
