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.
