- Wedding: March 2012
I grew up not talking to my biological father and lived most of my life with my grandma and grandpa. I was very close with my grandpa. My grandpa passed away this January and luckily my fiance was able to ask him for my hand earlier in December. However he was the one who was going to walk me down the aisle. I am now choosing to walk down the aisle alone but was thinking of ways to incorporate him into the ceremony before and during my walk down the aisle. I was thinking of writing a little something that the officiator can read before I walk down the aisle and then play my grandma and gramps wedding song and then walk down at the ending. The song is Strangers in the Night by Frank Sinatra and it actually relates exactly to me and my fiance since we did meet in a bar. I also was thinking of carrying in my arm that he would be holding, flowers. He loved texas so I was thinking of carrying down the Texas flower which is the blue ribbon and placing it somewhere after I walk down. Some people might think that I should be focusing more on the fact that I am going to see my future husband for the first time but to me that moment was special for my grandfather as well. Antoine also understands the bond I had with my grandfather so he says to do whatever I want. Please if you could think of any other ideas that experienced or thought of please let me know. I was also thinking of having my bridesmaid incorporated somehow before, like walk down to a song. I also didn’t know if having a picture of him somewhere by front would be too much?? I just really want him incorporated as much as possible with also making the ceremony about Antoine and I as well. Thanks!!
