I need your help bees!
My Grandmother passed away just two months ago. She was a HUGE part of my life and who I am today. I can never express what she meant to me growing up and as an adult. She was an incredible woman.
So I’m getting married in April and would like to find a way to include her in my wedding. Even though she’s not here I’d like to honor her in some way. Ideas please?

Maybe a candle or empty chair and a note in the program?

@pinkgreenandyellow: We did a couple of things for our passed love ones. The biggest thing was the “In Love Memory” section in the program which was accompanied by a table with a memorial candle and pictures of them. My grandfather was a huge part of my life and had he been alive I would have wanted him to walk me down the aisle. Instead, my mom let me borrow his memorial badge (he was a sheriff) which I pinned on my bouquet so that he could still be with me.

A table would probably be a great idea as FI and I have 4 total grandparents who have passed (two alive who will be there) so perhaps we can both honor our Grandparents with the table. How do you decorate the table? Just candles? Maybe a framed note about them?

Often, people put a candle or single flower on the altar with a note in the program. Another option would be to mention her when you speak at the rehearsal dinner.
One of my friends lost her brother before her wedding and her nearest and dearest surprised her by all giving her a flower in his name as she was walking down the aisle. I wasn’t there, but I cannot even look at the photos without crying.

We did a moment of silence for those who could not be there with us. Everyone pretty much knew that meant DH’s grandparents.
