I’m going to have the florist do something to honor them.. just not sure yet. I’m also going to have their names mentioned during the ceremony by our reverend.

I’m going to do a memorial table with candles at my reception for those FI and I have lost.  I’m also going one step further and getting a very small picture frame (thanks etsy!) and putting my aunt’s photo in it and attaching that to my bouquet.

We are also going to have memorial candles, something simple and sweet (like the pics below.) We will have these candles on the mantle of the fireplace.

I love that candle idea!  I’ve been trying to think of a way to specifically name each person whom we’ve lost instead of a general “In honor of those who can’t be here with us today” type of thing.  I think the candles are classy, timeless, and thoughtful.

LOL – I also like the giant jug of Jim Beam trying to sneak it’s way in to that bottom picture.

I think we will also be doing a memorial table with pictures of our grandparents.

We included a paragraph for each person in our programs. I really wanted to write a paragraph for my grandmother and we did 4 in total. During the ceremony, we thanked everyone for coming and mentioned that we appreciate their effort in traveling as well as acknowledging that not everyone could come.

I’m also doing something to honor relatives who have passed.  We will have pictures of me with my grandpa, and then the FH with his grandma and his grandpa.  These will be up at the front of the church for the ceremony and then at the guest table at the reception.  I’m putting daffodils in my bouquet and my mom and grandma have them in the corsages to honor my grandpa.  There is also a little insert in the programs explaining all this to the guests.

Hi there, I’m new here but wondered the same thing. My mom passed away almost eight years ago and I miss her everyday. I’m getting married on 3 Oct and since I started planning the wedding etc I feel sad a lot of the time because she is not here to share this with me, thing like my first dress fitting, helping me make the invitations and menus etc. We wrote our own ceremony, because we wanted it to be a little different to all the other weddings we witnessed. Will it be bad taste ot put something small (A line or two) in there just to thank her? I’m just a bit worried because my stepmom will also be there and although we are not close I don’t want to hurt anybody’s feelings. What do you guys think?
