Welcome to the Hive!

Thank you for sharing that.  I think that is such a unique and beautiful way to join your family and to remember your dad.  Lovely!

Thank you – this is beautiful.

I lost my dad almost 4 years ago.  He gave me away at my first wedding, but did not like my ex-husband, so it was a strange experience.  He didn’t know my Fiance very long before he died, but everyone says how much my dad would have liked him (and I agree).

I think it’s just now starting to sink in that my dad won’t be there.  I’ve thought of ways to honor him during the ceremony, but nothing has felt right so far.  I love your ideas and will continue to put more thought into it.

Fiance and I have 3 sons between the two of us, so have been trying to figure out a way to incorporate them into the ceremony.  We’ll do a sand ceremony (we’re getting married on a beach).  I thought about having my son walk me down the aisle, but I really like the idea of us all walking down together.  Or maybe meeting halfway? 

I love these creative and special ideas.  Thanks for sharing!
