What a beautiful thought. If you are uncomfortable making an announcement, put it in your programs. “In lieu of a bouquet toss the bride’s bouquet will be placed on the grave of M____, the bride’s grandmother, who is with us in spirit today.” I think this is a beautiful and creative idea. Your mother will be so touched.

I think that is a wonderful idea! I’m including forget-me-nots in my bouquet for my grandmother, but now I may have to “steal” this idea. I think its really precious. I should add the I think Fitzly’s idea is really great.

I love this idea and I think I’m going to do it for my grandmother as well!

I think just a little mention in the program is fine.

And I know what you’re talking about with your Grandma. I have the same thing with my Great Grandpa (I have super young parents, so I had lots of Great Grands when I was born). I was born on his birthday and he was alive to meet me, but he passed away 3 months later. When I got older (4 or so), I had a dream about him where he told me to call him “Great Grandpappie.” No one else really talked about him, so it was weird to them that I woke up one day and started talking about my Great Grandpappie. They all wanted to know who I was talking about. When I said my Granddad’s Dad, they all looked at me funny, so I just kept talking about him. They couldn’t believe it, but what I was saying was undeniable to them. I’ve called him Great Grandpappie ever since and no one thinks twice about it. I think of him like my Guardian Angel. He’s always got my back. Since I lost my uncle with the same birthday too, I now feel like I have 2 people covering me.

what a sweet idea. I don’t think it is morbid at all!

My father passed away about a year and a half ago, and I’m planning to put my bouquet on his grave.  I didn’t really think about making that dedication known, but I might consider it now.  Either way I think it’s a meaningful way to honor a loved one you’ve lost.
