How about something like “Remembering Papa on our special day”. Or, “With us in spirit, and forever in our hearts…something….”

We’re having little glass votives in front of our unity candle. And in the program we plan on writing- “In loving memory of [grandparents names] we have lit the candles in front of the unity candle. Love you all and wish you were here with us on our wedding day.” or something to that effect.

My father passed away a year and a half ago 🙁 and my grandmother passed about 6 mos. ago… So, I started thinking about this right away.  I’m going to have a mention in the program (probably right after the “thank you” to fam & friends), something like: “In memory of our loved ones” (list names), “We hold your memory in our hearts and feel your presence in spirit, today and always.”  I’m also going to have a memory table at the reception, with votives, framed pictures, and a framed poem.  There are a lot of ideas out there, so you should be able to find something that works for you and FI 🙂
