I think you will need the support on the day. You don’t have to be replacing them but even if you have your maid on honour on stand-by to walk down the isle with you (in case you get nervous). Do you have someone in mind to walk you down the isle?

You can always honour your family in your thank you speech to 🙂

I think wear his ring. Even if no-one sees it or knows you know and so will your finance (soon to be husband). It sounds like wearing the ring will be your way of having your Dad with you (even if your the only one that feels it).

Maybe just let your bridesmaid know that on the day you may need her to walk down with you.. you literally can decide moments before walking down the isle!

Have you thought about having your brother walk you down the aisle?

You could attach your father’s ring to your bouquet, if you don’t want to wear or it have lockets on your bouquet with a picture of your parents.

@Lover2014:  Sweetie, I am so sorry that you had to go through that!  I agree that you should wear his ring – it’s a perfect way to honor your father.  Do you remember if they had any favorite songs/music? Maybe you could choose your ceremony music to honor them? Or choose a reading to read for your lost loved ones?  BIG HUGS to you!

Depending on your bouquet, you could put a white rose for each loved one in the bouquet and a note in the programs explaining the significance.

@Lover2014:  You and your Fiance could walk down together, or you could walk alone, or have your maid of honor or another friend, older relative, etc, do it. It’s not replacing them. As for honoring them, you could have a memorial table, set aside chairs decorated with flowers or a single red rose for each loved one you want to remember, have their pictures on the alter, light a memorial candle, have a poem read during the ceremony or reception- there are tons of ways to honor a passed loved one at a wedding!
