What you did looks great. I’ve seen anything from a candle in the front to a vase with a rose for each person they were honoring. Simple, elegant and a nice tribute. Great way to remember him.

@jbbs1222:  I love that! It’s subtle, beautiful and very touching. I will start recommending this to people! I’m sure that by now everyone has seen the story of my cousin who made the creepy cardboard cutout of her recently deceased father and made it a part of the ceremony/reception :/

My FI’s mom passed away last year, and we have lost some grandparents/great-grandparents over the years. we aren’t doing a unity candle during our ceremony so we are using that set up as a memorial candle. after my dad walks me down the aisle, my FI and i will be going up to the alter, lighting the memorial candle together, and our pastor will be saying something short about what it is we are doing, then we will proceed with the ceremony.

my father passed away a couple of years ago, and i had planned to do a special dessert for him. he used to make my sisters and i eat these GHASTLY prunes marinated in rum and he and i shared a SERIOUS sweet tooth, so i have created a recipe for prune pudding with a rum caramel sauce to be one of the options for dessert at the reception. only people who knew him would make the connection, others would just have a delicious dessert.

@jbbs1222:  I carried my parents wedding bands tied to my bouquet. It was very meaningful private way for me to have my mom there with us. Also my dad didn’t “give me away” but we included wording that asked our parents for their support so as part of that the officiant said “Dad’s name, you and Mom’s Name raised Bride…” We didn’t do a monent of silence or anything to remember those who couldn’t be with us, but we did include the Irish Blessing in the ceremony because it was special to my mom.

@futuremrscummings:  I love this! It’s the most original tribute I’ve ever heard of and seems so appropriate and personal, and really fun.
