My mother passed away 5 years ago and I would really love to have her be a part of my wedding. Anyone else in the same position? Any thoughts?
She absolutely loved to dance the Hully Gully 🙂 So, i was thinking about having everyone (who knows how) come up and dance to it as the first song (after dinner). Is this silly? Any other ideas? Thanks!

I’d like to hear about this too. Fiance and I both have lost our mothers.

@pcoelho: I wish I knew….my grandmother passed 2 months before my wedding and we almost cancelled. I was traumatized basically…It was too close to home so I didn’t do anything in her memory because I was way too sensitive at the time.
I loev your idea. I bet your mom will be looking down on you smiling…looking beautiful and happy and dancing to her favorite tune with all her/your loved ones.
@gogogiraffes: I can’t imagine…best wishes to both of you!

Here is what I did to remember my parents. It’s subtle, which I wanted cause I am super emotional about it even after 6 years since my mom passed and 15 since my dad.
For anyone who is interested – the etsy seller seems great. I originally emailed her and got a response back in under 12 hours and once I sent her everything it was a couple days and she had the charm finished for me. I am now waiting for it to arrive, which should be any day.

My dad passed two months before my wedding…someone I know who makes jewelry gifted me a charm much like gwynth’s for my bouquet. We also still used the song my dad had picked for the father-daughter dance and opened it up to ALL fathers and daughters, so I think your dance idea is great. Another idea is to have a framed photo of your mom on the pew/chair were she would have sat.

My FH’s dad passed away about 3 years ago and at our ceremony we are going to have a “Memorial Vase” with his name on it with a flower arrangement in it.

@pcoelho: I think the Hully Gully is AWESOME. Whatever you decide to do will be fine,
