littleitaly17 :  if you’re worried about the sticker can you cover it in some way? Put it in a tub or something?  Honouring her is lovely. I’m sure everyone will feel the sentiment of it.

littleitaly17 :  SOme people hate the idea of honoring deceased realtives. But I say do it. We will. I don’t care what people think. 

I also like the idea of covering the sticker with a saying perhaps?

littleitaly17 :  Just cover the sticker. You can get some ribbon and a glue gun and just cover it.

It’s all about personal preference. I personally don’t mind when the deceased are honored in a subtle way. I can’t tell you have many weddings I’ve worked where they’ve made a big production out of honoring their loved ones and it becomes a big sob fest and the wedding never recovers from it.

I dont know if this is helpful or not, but you can almost always remove sticky glue residue from glass by using eucalyptus oil on a cotton ball. 🙂

I’d cover up the label with a wide ribbon and maybe a silk flower. I think it’s a beautiful idea.

VictorianChick : 

Really ? I have never seen anyone on these boards ‘hate’ the idea of honouring dead family members, or even come close to suggesting  it.

I have seen people give different views on what they consider to be appropriate or pleasing , but that is somewhat different.

OP , I think it is a lovely idea. A wide white ribbon  perhaps ?

I thought the candle idea is nice, a bow in her favorite color could be put over the label. I wouldn’t like a sign next the candle, though, saying this is for my mom who died. 

I don’t ‘hate’ the idea of wedding memorials to the dead, they just get me uncomfortable. I have lost people too, and it feels funny to have tears and sadness and old pictures at weddings. 

I am all for subtle tributes.

I don’t think it’s weird or tacky. Is there a way to cut the candle part out of the jar and put it in something else so it goes with the decor if that’s something you’re worried about?

I think it’s a very nice idea! Like PP have said, there are many creative ways to cover the sticker. Perhaps you could put the candle next to a cute saying board, or a picture of her? Or better yet, one of her in her garden?

I think that sounds great.  I like the idea of just covering it with a ribbon or something. Not tacky at all.  Some ways to honour the deceased at weddings I find too depressing, but this is totally fine.
