Are you trying to do this on a ceremony program or in the reception? I am doing a In Loving memory table at the reception with the deceased loved ones names engraved on the glass and filled with water and a floating candle with lyrics from a song in a frame around the candles and cylinder. I only have 1 grandmother living and she is getting a corsage like the mothers are.

All of my grandparents have passed. My husband has all of his but one but unfortuneatly none of them could make it to our wedding. So we decided to have a table full of wedding pictures – both sets of grandparents on each side a long with our parents wedding pictures. I really loved it and it was our way of having them at our wedding.

My mother-in-law died a month ago, which was a tragedy..she was the dearest lady, wife, mother and grandmother and she’s terribly missed.She was very, very happy about the marriage so you can immagine how tough it has been..

i have thought about how to honor her memory in our wedding but as my fiancée Itated, “we don’t want people crying with grief at our wedding” soooo i decided to do something really simple and discrete – she will acompany me all the way, since my grandparents’ house where i am dressing my wedding gown till down the aile and after becoming Mrs. Simões.

I will attach a small engraving with her picture to my bouquet and that is how i will honor her.I know she would love this

Same thing here….. Fiance and I both only have one living grandmother…. mine will be at the wedding (with a corsage) but also does not want to walk down the aisle – it’s hard for her to get around.  FI’s grandmother cannot fly in either (lives in a different country) so we are also trying to figure out how to include her since she won’t be in attendance.  If you think up something, I’d love to hear it – our wedding is in 2 weeks!!!  Of course, we waited until the last minute to do this stuff!!

For my 1st wedding there were mini pictures of people hidden in my bouquet.  (I didn’t know they were there until the reception when my mom & the lady who did the bouquet showed me.)  They had included my moms parents, my 2 aunts, 3 of my cousins who i was very close to, and then a picutre of a certain flag that holds very special memories for me.

This time around I am thinking about having an empty chair with a rose on it in memory of my grandpa who just passed.  If not I am going to go a picture charm on my bouquet for him and then have a memorial table set up at the reception for everyone that has passed.
