That’s a very sweet idea.  We are displaying photos at the guestbook table, and mentioning them in our ceremony programs.

We are having a small table to itself w/3 tall thick candles for each person that has passed or cannot be there – each candle will have a ribbon around it with a small charm with their picture in it, plus a something of theirs attached to it – for example, a marine corps pin or my grandfather’s Moose Lodge pin. The candles will be lit prior to wedding party entering for the ceremony.

I love july09bride’s idea.  we had photos and candles displayed, and I made a little thing that said "In loving memory – you are in our hearts this day and always".  I think honoring these people in any way is meaningful.  A lot of people commented to us how much it meant to them.

We got a multi-opening frame and put a picture of each of our sets of parents on their wedding day and couple pictures of each set of grandparents from their younger years (we didn’t have any wedding photos of them) and in the last opening we printed "Our Family" on cardstock.

I’m going to try to include a lot of old photos because we have only one grandparent left between us. I also think it’s so cool to see weddings through the ages. I’m hoping to have it on a table with the guest book. The candle idea sounds great, but not sure if the venue will let me.

I am not sure what I would do about those whom have passed on, pictures is a nice idea.

However, for your grandparents whom can not be there I think having a good wishes letter or card written from them to ya’ll displayed would be nice.
