I saw this on a show once.  They had a pedestal of some sort with her bouquet sitting on top of it.  It was very moving.  I’m sorry for your loss.  ๐Ÿ™

I’m so sorry for your loss.

Hmmm… Let me think for a bit and get back to you.

Maybe you could leave a chair on the aisle open at the front. Have an honorary Maid/Matron of Honor be the one to bring the bouquet up and place it on the chair to signify your sisters walk up the aisle.

I am also thinking about ways to honor my sister who passed away; we have a candle for her that we light at family holidays, so that may be included, and I will have a small bouquet for her on our “altar”. (We are not having a church wedding but will have some sort of table up front to place the bouquet and the readings on.) I also have her locket, and I’m planning to sew the locket to the handle of my bouquet as a kind of brooch. This is a smaller display, but something that will really make me feel like she’s there with me…if you have any kind of jewelry of hers that you could wear, or incorporate into your bouquet, that is an option. Another idea is a piece of clothing or handkerchief that could be wrapped around the handle of your bouquet.

I think you can do any and all of the ideas you have if they feel right to you. Good luck…I’d love to know what you decide on if you’d like to report back.

Was there something that she absolutely loved? Maybe you could somehow incorporate that into your day as well. (i.e if she loved butterflies you could release butterflies at the ceremony in honor of her) or something along those lines

First, I too am sorry for your loss.

I don’t know the theme of your wedding or how this would look once it was put together, but what about doing like a pillar with a bridesmaids boquet in a vase on top.

I know oriental trading company sells these. Just an idea.

If it were me, I would have my mom walk down the aisle and place her portrait and the bouquet on a pedastel or chair next to where you will be standing.

I’m sorry for your loss. Maybe a ribbon (with her favorite colours) on a chair or on the side of the pews. Also maybe wrapping a necklace or something of hers into your bouquet. She will be right there with you regardless.

i saw in oriental trading a nice vase with a logo that said in memory of those who are with us or something like it, and you put flowers in the vase!  some people have a nice picture of your love one and when you are done with the ceremony, you will place your flower or the small bouquet right in front of the  picture.  i’m so sorry for your lose, and i hope you enjoy your day!
