I chose to have a white rose for each person in my bouquet.  That way, they would still be with me when I walked down the aisle.  The priest also made an small announcement during the ceremony that this was how we were choosing to honor our loved ones.  Did he have a favorite team for a sport?  You could leave a spot on a chair with his favorite team’s hat to symbolize his presence.

We had a few people pass away in last couple of years and months leading up to our wedding (we have been together 7 years). So to honor my grandparents, my great aunt and uncle, my DH’s grandmother and best friend who would have been best man we did a single flower for each one. We put their names on the stem of the flower and put each in a bud vase. DH thought it might be kind of a downer seeing the names kind of on display at the reception but everyone really appreciated it, it was lovely.

My brother’s best friend died about a week after he got engaged.  He ended up having one less groomsman the day of, and everyone knew why.  It was touching for him to not be replaced.

To honor my FI’s grandparents who have passed away, we’re putting an “In Memory Of…” section at the bottom of our programs.
