Mr future me has little oppenion on how our big day goes. He did state that he would like to add a catholic symbol to our wedding in remembrance of his recently departed grandmother. I love the idea, but neither of us being particularly religouse we dont know what “symbol” to use. If anyone can give me insight as to this it would help so much. We are having an outdoor wedding and also using the sand ceremony. The officiant is a Christian preacher.

Just a suggestion to put this into the Catholic section. Im not catholic so I cant help you out but maybe youll get more responses there!

I just moved you over to Catholic. I’m not really sure what you’re looking for, but typically for rememberance a candle is lit or a picture is put out. Maybe a special blessing or scripture is read.

Perhaps lighting a candle in rememberance while Ave Maria plays in the background, or even just a mention of his grandmother by the preacher as part of a rememberance of people important to you both that have passed on.

You could have the congregation offer eachother the sign of peace. That is part of every mass, and easy to incorporate.
You could also do a section of intersessions, which are prayers for specifics things, followed with “Lord, hear our prayer” by the congregation.
I am an atheist, but I may do versions of each of these things.

How about the common symbol of Alpha Omega, with Chi Rho in between. This stands for Jesus Christ, the Beginning and the End…
Something like this…
