@Stargaze31:  It’s beautiful! That’s a really nice way to honour those who are missing from your special day. I love it 🙂

I think that’s lovely.  I love the words in the quote – very apt.

We had a memory table and before we went to the dance floor for our first dance our MC announced us to light our memory candle – which was in a crystal star shaped holder – maybe you could do that also?  We lit it together and it stayed lit all night while everyone else was partying, and it really felt like our loved ones were there without being morbid..

@Stargaze31:  I love the wording I don’t like the memory table idea.You could always note it in your programs.

 

 

 

While your heart is in the right place, some people might still be mourning.

 

 

 

Remember this is your wedding not a funeral. (didn’t mean to sound harsh), OUt of all the ideas in this link, I find the most approriate one to be the note in the programs as mentioned above or the flameless candle on the greeting table.

@Mcda04:  I disagree.  Ours was lovely and fitting for the occasion, we had a candlelit reception anyway so it was subtle.
