    i love the bouquet idea definitely do that!! and i really love the trellis idea. Maybe decorate the trellis differently so it doesnt look morbid (no skulls, maybe just flowers, or incorporate your wedding colors, but i think its a nice touch.

    I love the bouquet and the ceremony trellis, and I think it’s really sweet to do a memorial for those who can’t be there.  I think the reception table number idea is a little too much though.  I understand that it fits with the theme, but personally I’d feel uncomfortable looking at a picture of my dead uncle or grandma as I eat dinner and mingle with guests at the reception.

    I voted to stick to the bouquet images and put a note in the program. The trellis idea is a sweet gesture, but seems a bit morbid for my taste, personally.

    Also, you could always set up a remembrance table in the reception hall and put the pictures out on display there, rather than as table numbers.

    I love the skulls imagery and the bouquet and trellis but I really think you need keep the trillis for the ceremony only. Using the pictures of deceased loved ones as table numbers would, I think, make people uneasy. Similarly, I think there are more appropriate ways of remembering people than leaving empty chairs for them.

    @AndysCraftsNmore:  So sorry your father won’t be there to walk you down the aisle but yes, I agree that it would be much harder for your mother to look at an empty seat with his picture on it. If you put his picture on the trellis then she can have a quiet moment of remembrance away from the more emotive moment when you walk up the aisle.

    I like the trellis. Everything else may be overkill. We are doing this one.

    @AndysCraftsNmore:  Everything sounds good to me, except for using people who have passed as table numbers, it just seems to be a little too much. I like the idea of having the trellis at the ceremony and at the reception though! The bouquet idea is also really cool.
