I’m sorry for his loss.  I think that anything your Fiance wants to do to honor is father is best.  Is there another reason you wanted that location other than it was just his father’s hometown?  Truthfully, as someone who lost a parent, it might be too hard for him to have it at a location that reminds him so much of his father so soon after his passing.  Maybe you could have it where you live now so everyone has to travel (fair for both sides of the family)?

So sorry for your loss.  My dad paased away in 2005, so when my brother married in 2008, they had 3 empty chairs with a single rose on each, each chair represented where my dad and SIL parents (both her parents passed before wedding) would have sat.  There was also a reading in their honor.

My sister also passed away in 2009, so at my wedding we will have 2 candles lit during the ceremony in honor of my dad and sister.  We will also have the 2 seats with a single flower and a reading in their honor.  The Memorial table will be brought into the reception hall.  It will have 2 lit candles, 1 fo each of them, a picture of each of them (or a few pics) and a beautiful globe I found at things remembered that says “Loved ones never leave us as they live forever in our hearts”.  My mom will be lighting my dad’s candle and my sister’s grand daughter will be lighting her candle.  It’s very important to me that they be remembered during the ceremony because my dad would have walked me down the aisle and my sis would have been my Maid/Matron of Honor.
