My mother passed away when I was little and I’d like to make sure she is part of the wedding but I don’t want it to be a dominate part of the ceremony and be a become sad. I have my mother’s wedding dress and I have thought of hanging her wedding dress near the family photos, guests book etc with a note about her. Is this a nice way to involve my mom or is it too personal?

I like the idea! Could you include a picture of her on her wedding day and a picture of her shortly before she passed away? Along with the note of course.

My fiance’s father passed away 2 years ago. My fiance didn’t want a big overdone fanfare for his Dad, we wanted a quiet recognition. I came up with t he idea of one empty chair in the first row (where he would have sat) with a small bouquet of lillies (his favorite flower). I think it’ll feel like he got to be there. My fiance loved the idea. Do what makes you feel like she’s there.
