Have you checked with him to make sure that he is okay with it?  My mother passed away before my wedding and I couldn’t stand to have anything mentioning her the day of because it would have broken my heart.

Both my mother and my husband’s mother were deceased at the time of our wedding, and we acknowledged them in two ways.

Early in the ceremony our celebrant acknowledged certain loved ones who wished they could be there but couldn’t, as well as those who were “no longer here in body,” and she mentioned our moms by name, as well as other family members we have lost.

We also listed our moms in our program in the Thank You section:

To our fathers, (we included their first names) for their presence and support in our lives,
to our mothers, (we included their first names) for influencing us in ways unimaginable,
and to our immediate and extended families and friends,
who make us better people through their support, encouragement, and love.

If you like it, steal it.  We were happy with it.  It warmed our hearts in a very gentle way without dwelling on our losses on the most important days of our lives.  We also heard wonderful feedback from our family members, who were truly touched by the remembrance.
