@Tessemasgirl I really like those lockets– would you mind telling me where you got them?

I’m hoping for more posts to this thread because both FH and I have both lost important people to us and I like the idea of honoring them.

I’m interested as well, would like to honor FI’s father.

One couple that we know is getting married labor day weekend has a tribute to the groom’s dad on their wedding website. Not sure if they’re planning anything for the ceremony, i’ll update if i see anything worth mentioning.

We will be having a moment of silence during our reception at the speeches, I think my fiance is going to include in his speech a toast for absent friends and family (since a lot will not be able to attend as we are different nationalities) and we are going to include a few moments of silence to ask for people to remember my brother especially on our wedding day.

I will be dancing with my grandfather to a song that reminds us of my grandmother…I will have the DJ make an announcement…

I will also be doing a father/daughter or moms boyfriend/daughter dance, but that’s a whole other issue!!

We will start w/ the minister welcoming everyone & letting everyone know that the next song is in rememberance of the loved ones that aren’t able to be with us. At that time the harpist will play Somewhere Over the Rainbow. During that time DF & I will be giving a flower to eachother’s mother, sort of a “welcome to the family” type thing. Does that make any sense??

We had a vase up on the alter that had the favorite flower of each of our loved ones that had passed (so there were 5 different flowers in the vase – one for each person).  We then had a note in the program that indicated who each of the flowers was honoring.

I think the greatest tributes are the subtle ones – ie, a locket on a bouquet, a casual note in a program. I have been to many weddings in the past that have had an almost sombre, awkward undertone because they contained certain “funeral-esque” moments – in my opinion, your loved ones lost would want this day to be about YOU, and celebrating your joy.

My FI’s  sister passed away about 5 years ago. I am surprising him with locket cufflinks with her picture in it.

WE had one candle for every family member that has passed away and then the mothers lit them. On the program we just put that the candles are lit in remembrance of  name, name , name, name….

I wanted to put a vase with my brothers picture by it at our sweetheart table, but i dont want to be sad :(. I know it will kill me looking at it all night. I was thinking maybe have something by the entrance where the guest book will be.
