A small spinoff from what I’ve seen another bee mention.
I’m planning on setting out a display of my late mothers favorite flowers and cute envelopes of seeds for everyone to take. I’d like to make a small sign that says ” in memory of……..please take one to plant in your loved one’s memory”
What do you think bees? Is this too depressing? A sweet gesture? Or will it go entirely un-noticed?
I was also considering getting mini terra cotta planters and decorating them and placing the seed packets in the mini pots.

@sofialovesmikey: If you’re getting married in a church, I’d put a flower or plant on the altar in her memory and leave it at that. I think you should do something, but giving guests something to take home seems a bit too much for my tastes.

Why don’t you use the favorite flower in you’re bouquet or your centerpieces. We have several family members we’re going to honor in different ways, a chinese lantern release for FI deceased chinese grandfather, Southern comfort food for both of my grandoarents and certain flowers among ithers for other fanily members. We’re going to put a little note on the back of the menu’s with “fun facts” or “things you didn’t know” sort of thing and include them along with other non death related facts for example: getting gelatto is a staple of Mr. and Mrs. minioenguin, it is natural for them to have some at the wedding, please go ahead and choose from their 6 favorite flavors. and then, you might have noticed a marked Southern flair to the appetizers, the couple tried to incorporate Mrs. minipenguin’s grandparent’s favorite dishes, who unfortunately could not share this day with their grand daughter…l etc etc etc
