My FI and I have been trying to think of a way to honour those who we have lost most importantly our grandparents and a couple of friends/aunts/uncles who have played a big part in our lives. What did you do?
We’ve decided to do an In Memoriam page in our program with a listing of those we’ve lost. So I’ve been looking for a little verse to put with these names. Any suggestions?

Here is what we are putting in our programs and we are also having our close relatives mentioned during the ceremony….
On this most special milestone in our lives, we wish to lovingly remember those close to our hearts who are no longer with us . We know they are here with us in spirit. The wonderful memories of the precious times shared with each of them will be cherished forever… <!–EndFragment–>

My hubby and I had both lost parents pretty recently before our wedding. This was DEFINITELY the hardest part of the planning for me! We didn’t have programs, we didn’t have chairs, we didn’t have lots of the pieces to the ceremony that most folks used to recognize the people that couldn’t be there.
We ended up having to large orchids on the railings behind us and had the preacher mention at the beginning of the ceremony the orchids were in memory of my dad and his mom. Then he read this:
Though we are separated physically,
Faith and love have bound us eternally.
Though we cannot see you,
We know you are here.
Though we cannot touch you,
We feel the warmth of your smile, as we begin a new chapter in our lives.
Best of luck in your planning – I know the is a very special part of your day that you want to make sure is just right for you guys 🙂

My MOH is carrying 2 framed pics of my daughter and niece/godchild along with her bouquet and will place the pics on a bench next to the bridal party.
