Hmmm maybe just a little? The frames are a nice touch. But the snacks and explanation, I dunno, it maybe a bit of a downer on the day that is sapposta be celebrating you two and a celebration of life and marriage? Perhaps you could visit the burial site the day before the wedding and leave the snacks and “ask” them to celebrate with you guys tommorow! Just my thoughts! And I’m sorry for your losses:(

Sorry but I really don’t like this idea.

I agree with PPs, I’m really not a fan of these elaborate memorials at weddings. Your own private touches are just fine, but as a guest I don’t want to learn more about your recently deceased cousin at a wedding celebration. I’m sorry if that sounds insensitive, but I think weddings should be fun upbeat affairs all the way around.

I agree that it would be a bit wierd as a guest, especially those who weren’t close to your cousin.  However, if you want that snack, go for it!  Those of you who knew the cousin can know the meaning, but I wouldn’t explain it to others.
