I’m sorry.  I know how hard this is.

My gramma loved rosaries.  No joke – she probably had 50 of them.  So I’m carrying a doll-sized rosary in my bouquet for her.

We’ll also have a picture of her at the reception.  We are considering having a white rose on an empty chair but I’m not sure if it will be too depressing..

@Firinne:  I’m really sorry about your Grandma…I’ll keep you both in my thoughts.

One of my favorite things is when brides put a single rose (or Grandma’s favorite flower) of a specific color in their bouquet (e.g., a bouquet of white flowers with a single red rose) and in the program, they say “the single red rose in Bride’s bouquet is to remember her loving Grandmother.” That way, in every photo of the day…every moment you look at the bouquet…Grandma is always with you.

We were married on my husbans grandparents anniversary. He was named after his grandfather, who had now passed away, and his grandmother is in her 90s and was unable to attend. I made a bouquet charm with a picture of them and a poem his grandmother wrote for us and tied it around my bouquet. I love to look at it now and it was really special, especially for his mom and I (they are her parents) at the wedding.
