I wished my dad was at my wedding- he died 6 years ago- 🙁 but I didn’t do any candles, mention, anything in the ceremony. Just a mention in the program. I knew I needed to focus on happiness and that I’d break down if it became a part of the ceremony.

Awww, the crossword is such a sweet touch. I am sure she’ll be watching and smiling at how happy you are on that day!

I’m so sorry to hear that. I know how hard that is – my grandma died when I was 14 from pancreatic cancer due to smoking. She wouldn’t give up cigarettes no matter what. 

My dad’s parents also died young, so I’ve felt a void there. I never knew them (my grandpa was killed my a drunk driver in ’65, my grandma died of breast cancer in ’88.) 

It makes me really sad sometimes to think about them not being here, but I have come to terms with it. They may not be here, but there are many people who love me and have memories of them, and they will live on that way.

my grandma is dying right now and it’s hard.  I had my wedding already, but my grandma couldn’t be at it because she was too ill.

Both of my grandmothers have passed so I will be putting a small picture of them in a locket and attaching it to the part of my bouquet i will be holding. I think it’s great to remember family members that have passed at a wedding!

i TOTALLY feel you. my paternal grandmother passed on when I was 13 – and my maternal grandmother 6 years ago…while we’re not doing any “rememberance candles” or anything – i am going to do my hardest to figure out a way to place THEIR wedding pictures in MY wedding…

it is hard – but just remember how proud she would be / is of you and that she IS watching over you all the time.

My father died two years ago from lung cancer, even though he quit smoking over 18 years prior. I am having a really hard time dealing with the fact that he won’t be able to walk me down the aisle, or share the father-daughter dance. I had the song we would dance to picked out for some time :*(

Just last night I sat on a park bench looking at a magnolia in bloom (his favorite tree) and started to cry.

I will have a tiny memorial photo frame tied to my bouquet so that he can be with me as I walk down the aisle.

Oh I did the bouquet frame thing too, I really liked it and felt like it was a personal touch. That might be a great idea for you!
