I’ve written about this previously and got a lot of great responses. I finally found a poem that I really love, however, it needs some altering. Any good/creative writers out there willing to help? The poem goes as follows:
Christmas in heaven, what do they do? they all come to earth, and spend it with you. So save them a space, one empty chair, you may not see them, but they will be there.
Obviously, the “Christmas” part needs to go. Also, I’m not really religious, so I’m not sure about the heaven part, either, although every single guest of ours is religious, so it’s not a big deal to leave Heaven in there.
Any help is greatly appreciated!!
EDIT: I just want to add that I don’t want “weddings in heaven, what do they do…”…that sounds like someone is having a wedding in heaven, and it just sounds weird to me and I don’t feel like it would apply. Thanks!

What about “Weddings from heaven”? Or “Gatherings from heaven”? Not a poet myself, but at least then it sort of sounds like they are traveling from heaven to join the party.

Edited to add – I wasn’t really active on the “Bee” when you made the related post. My sister had the preteens in the family put roses for the family members who had left us in the wedding arch. That way they were “around” them when they said their vows. A small table with that sign might be a lovely addition. I intend to “borrow” the idea from my sister for my own wedding and love the idea of a small sign. I may want to find a way to incorporate something like that into the plan myself after seeing the sign you posted.

what about replacing “christmas” with celebrations, joyous occasions, or something that is a “category” that a wedding day falls under? i think that would express it appropriately and sound beautiful :)<br /><br />

mdcmod: i havent written a poem in years; but How about something like this:
Weddings on earth, what would they be?
without everyone here celebrating with you and me
So save them a space, one empty chair, you may not see them but they will be there
