Yes, you can do this at the reception. You could also have some empty seats at the ceremony reserved for them with a flower, and a note in the program about those symbolizing people you loved who are gone.

i think a memorial table is such a nice idea.. i’m thinking of doing something like this myself. i like the idea of having their names on cards and a single candle for each at the reception.. maybe also a framed note from you and your FI (explaining what the memorial table is for guests who don’t know those people have passed)

I agree with amysue. If you’d like to do a memorial table, the reception is really the best place for it. And she also made a great recommendation for the empty seats at the ceremony. I had a cousin pass away recently, and we’re reserving one chair for him at the ceremony, and putting a sign that says, "In loving memory of [name], who is with us today in spirit." The chair will also have a rose on it. That’s traditionally what people do to honor lost loved ones, and the memorial table is a good idea as well, as long as you don’t think people will get overly upset by it.
