We are “saving a seat” for my FI’s mom who has passed. We are using the chair in the front row where she would be sitting, attaching a sign to the chair that will say something sweet. Putting a picture of her on the chair and a rose, like the one my mom will have.

I’m having an area with family wedding pictures, which will of course include several family members who have passed.  I’m also having small pictures of my mom, my brother, and his long-time girlfriend in my bouquet so I have them with me while I walk down the aisle.

We did a “memorial” table for those who have passed. I also had a corsage made for my grandmother who passed away, with “Gammie” written on it (that’s what I called her).

We’ll probably have a pic of FI’s dad in a reserved chair up front for the ceremony and I’d like to have our grandparents wedding pictures displayed in the reception space.  FI’s parents were divorced before his dad passed, so we probably won’t display their wedding pic but will have my parents’ pic as well.

We’re not doing anything for a few reasons. 1) there’s no one super close to Fiance and I who has passed away in the last little while, and fingers crossed no one dies between now and our wedding. 2) If we start to include some people whom I/FI were close to, then the list would be super long. 3) It’s a day of celebration for Fiance and I, not a day to remember those who have passed. I want our wedding day to be 100% joyful, no sadness at all.

We were going to do lighted candles for my mom, who passed over a decade ago, but went with playing a song she loved instead.  DH’s family had a young cousin pass very close to the wedding and he felt that if we brought up his cousin, it would made his entire family upset.  We had them play my mom’s song as the first dance, after the first dance & father/daughter/son/mom songs. It was neat cause everyone knew my mom danced her butt off to that song!

We have decided to ring bells at the ceremony in memory of my mother and his parents. We will have a toast to them at the reception.
