You could have photographs of your loved ones in vintage frames and have them in your reception venue. I’ve seen many brides on the bee put photos in their bouquets.

@kstevens2: First of all, I’m sorry for your losses. 

As for honouring your loved ones, could you perhaps dedicate a reading to them?

I will honour our loved ones by adding a line to the ceremony program saying something along the lines about them being there in our hearts. After the ceremony, FI and I will also head to the cemetery where I’ll place my bouquet on my grandpa’s grave. If you’re getting married close to where your family is resting, perhaps that’s something you might want to consider? I’m a little worried about it, as I know I’ll cry, but I’ve decided that the day is too important not to share it with him in some way.

I’m so sorry for your losses.

Both of my parents are deceased as well.  FI has lost his grandparents.  We will place a single red rose on a seat in the front row with a small sign to honor them.  I am not sure of what the sign will state, but something like “In honour (or memory) of those who couldn’t be with us today.”  

The red rose is mostly in honour of my mother, and many will know that (the red rose was her flower).

I’m affraid if there were a reading, I would lose it big time.  I only want happy tears on that day.

@kstevens2:  I am having a candle with a saying on it for our grandparents that have passed away. I’m thinking of putting it on the gift table or some where everyone can see it. Also we’re having the DJ play a song to remember them as well.

My father passed away in 2009. We are honouring him and other deceased relatives by displaying my fathers guitar and putting a sign on it listing all of their names.
