I don’t have any suggestions (I’m not good with the ideas on memorial things), but I just wanted to send my condolences to you. 🙁

Oh my gosh – I’m so very sorry to hear that! {{hugs}}

You could light a candle at your ceremony in her honor or another tradition I’ve seen is having one single rose in your bouquet that is a different color than all the rest (e.g.,  a white bouquet with a single red rose) and in the program you can say “The single red rose in PMSJL’s bouquet is in loving memory of her dearest friend _______.”

Again, my very sincere condolences – I hope you are holding up ok.

I am so sorry for your loss.

Definetly mention her in your program book, you can even do a brief paragrpah explaining what she ment to you.  Also, do you have something she gave you, or something of hers? Perhaps you can wear that on your wedding day to honor her memory. It could be your “something old”

First off, I just want to say how very sorry I am for your loss.

That being said, I have in the past few years both my Fiance and myself have lost several people that we are sad won’t be there on this day. So, we’re doing a couple things. First, we’re giving them a special shout out in our program. Second, we’ll be lighting a candle in their memory, and placing pictures of them around it.

I hope this helps. Again, I am so, so sorry you are going through this 🙁

I’m so sorry for your loss. 

You could mention her in your program, in a section with a title along the lines of “Loved ones not with us today:”

You could put a flower in a place of honor in her memory. 

You could put her photo in a locket and wear it somewhere – either as a piece of your jewlery or sewn into your dress or attached to your bouquet.

You could display a photo of the two of you together – perhaps near your guest book, where people will see it and know how dear she is to you.

My condolences for your loss (((hugs)))

I would let some time go by before deciding how to best honor her memory.  You are still in shock, and will be mourning for some time. Once you have had some time to heal, you will probably find the perfect tribute just pops into your head.  But you want to take time, and let it come on its own, so it can be built on love and happy memories, rather than the grief that is such a big part of your life right now.

Let the healing process take you where you need to go, then everything else will follow.

Although I don’t have any suggestions, I would like to give you my condolences. My mother recently lost her best friend of 35 years and it has been incredibly hard for our family. I am glad that you will be honoring her at your wedding, as I will be doing the same at mine.

Actually, what we’ve talked about doing to honor loved ones that have passed is the floating lanterns. Each guest is given a lantern and writes the name of a loved one on it, the lantern has a candle in the center of it and is released into the sky. It’s so beautiful and incredibly emotional when it’s done.

Hope that helps 🙂

I’m very sorry.

At the bottom of our wedding program, we’re having the below:


We’d like to thank our family for all their love and support which made us who we are, and brought us to this special day.

…Our friends, with whom we experience life’s joys, and whom we hope will be part of our lives throughout the years to come.

…And those whose memory we forever preserve in our hearts:

(list of names of grandparents and friends who have passed.)
