First, I’m sorry for your losses.

 

I was very close to my grandfather and even though it’s 10 years since he passed away, I want him to be part of our wedding. Grandma gave me his wedding band 6 years ago, so I’ll carry it on a chain around my neck. I will also mentioning him in my speech. I’ve been thinking of other ways to honour him, and was thinking that I would want to make a donation towards cancer research. You could perhaps place a card on each table saying that you’re making a donation instead of giving the guests a favour. I know I would find that very touching myself and a much better way to use the money.

Sorry for your loss.

I love the picture idea on the flowers.  Also have you thought about incoperating a flower into the wedding that has meaning to the both of you? My grandfather always wore red.

 

What is one thing that he loved, or the two of you shared that you can somehow tie into the wedding.

Thanks so much for mentioning the shirt thing. I was looking for a way to honour my father and I hope this can be one way.

I am incorporating a red rosé into my bouquet in his honour. He also gave me a locket right before he died that I am putting on the stem part of it.  I love the shirt idea!
