Kind of… it just sort of sounds like a funeral. Maybe you could just light a remembrance candle for her and put a note about it in your programs.

I think a picture of her and another bridesmaid bouquet on an empty chair would be lovely.

My friend recently did this at her wedding. Her FI best friend died suddenly his freshman year in college from meningitis. They named him as an honorary groomsman on the program and I believe they left his spot open at the alter, meaning they had an uneven bridal party. For those of us who knew him it was a beautiful gesture.

At my brothers wedding he acknowledged a few people who had passed who he missed on the day during his speech. I would also like to acknowledge my friend who was murdered in some way but I’m thinking I might leave it out of the wedding and just go and lay my bouquet or some flowers from it at her grave (especially as the venue we’re considering is right near where her headstone is).

I think though your idea sounds sweet and so does the suggestions from GreenEyedMoon and MissGreen and if you feel it’s right then do it x
