I just felt like sharing but I’m excited about one of the ways I’ve found to remember my mom on my wedding day. Its very important to me that she is present in our day but I also don’t want sad/memorial type moments at my wedding. I think honoring loved ones is always tricky for that reason. I’ve recently decided to carry a calla lily bouqeut in rememberance of my mom who carried the same flowers on her wedding day. I’m love the idea that she will be with my dad and I as we walk down the aisle and that she will be right next to me during the whole ceremony. I’ll probably have a few other things in her honor but I like that one of them is something I can carry with me all day.

I really love this idea. I dislike the empty chair in memory of a loved one because it’s such an obvious reminder of the loss. It’s nice to honor a loved one in a way that elicits a smile rather than a tear.

That is very sweet. My mom passed away in 09′ and I don’t know what I am going to do. I know that I am going to put photos of both parents cake cutting from their weddings at my cake table. But I would have done that regardless. I did find out that without knowing it that I’m using the same colors for my wedding that she did. Turquoise and pink. I found out when I was just looking at the wedding photos. My sister did Cobalt and hot pink for her wedding. So, we’ve all used/going to use blue and pink.

i think what is hardest is my mom was such a huge part of my wedding. we have incorperated our parents and kids into the wedding. my mom passed away VERY unexpectidly in december. i am still crushed. i wake up every day to call and tell her the crazy wedding dreams and wedding ideas ive found and projects im working on and now i cant. im trying to get close to my Future Mother-In-Law like i was with my mom but it will never be the same. i saw a bee had a candle with a poem on it that made me bawl like a baby so im going to make one of those for my mom and FI’s grandpa. there will be a butterfly in my bouquet since she loved them and on my back i plan on getting a repleca of her tattoo on my back but with a butterfly sitting on it. i had to arrange for someone to sit in her seat. i told my Fiance i wouldnt walk down the aisle if that seat was empty. i wouldnt make it…i too have the ugly cry face…

My mom will not be at my wedding as well. Her favorite flower is the daisy, and so I’m going to incorporate them into my bouquet. They are such cheery and happy little flowers!
