I included something in the program for my grandfather that passed earlier in the year. I also wore his picture in my bouquet, he was like my dad so I wanted a way for him to walk me down the aisle.

We had family photos displayed in our cocktail hour space, we included a line in our programs, and Mr. LK carried a photo charm of his parents in his pocket. My MOH also had a section in herspeech dedicated to my Pop Pop, who passed away 1 week before our wedding. But when the time came for her to talk, she couldn’t actually read it. Instead, she gave me a copy of her speech, which I read later that night. I cried when I read it.

@loveknows , We are not mentioning my grandparents by name, because I feel it would make me too sad, but we are putting a tribute in the wedding program and making a memorial table at the reception which will have honorary seating cards for them with lit candles.

I have also been thinking about how to incorporate something into our day for my dad and my fiancee’s dad who have both passed away… I like the idea of candles with their names on them, or putting a little something that will remind us of them on one of the tables maybe… possibly a moment of silence during the ceremony….
