Below is what we included. We included it on the same page as the thank you for coming statement. We used a couple different fonts and some design elements and it looked nice (or I thought so anyway :))

In Loving Memory

On this most special milestone in our lives,

we wish to remember those close to our hearts

who are no longer with us. We know they are here with us in spirit.


Parents of the Groom

Mr. groom dad

My mother passed away from cancer. So, we want to make a donation in lieu of favors to a charity and include some words about her in the “scroll” that everyone recieves.

@mollyib: We’re having:

The remembrance candle that burns on the altar is

in loving memory of
**grandparents names**

 We wish you could be standing here with us today, but we know you are here in spirit.  You are in our hearts always; we love and miss you.

We are having a short line in our program honoring Mr. LK’s parents. We are also displaying family photos of loved ones present and past, with a white cala lilly floral arrangement.

Other suggestions I have seen include leaving empty seats at the ceremony with a flower or photo of the deceased loved one(s), lighting a rememberance candle during the ceremony, and having a rememberance candle burning the whole time on the altar.
