@cminardi:  Kind of similar: I was once at a wedding where one person in the wedding had to drop out at the last minute due to a terrible family tragedy. Early in the ceremony, the pastor led the congragation in prayer for this person and his family. So perhaps, you could ask the pastor/officiant to say a few words about how dearly you would have loved her to be there, and lead a prayer for her.

@cminardi:  Can you write something about how much your mother means to you and either record it ahead of time (way too hard to do live at the wedding) or have someone read it for you?

You know, I wouldn’t put it in the program. A bit impersonal, since this is so important to you. Include it in your toast. Just a few words about how much you love your mother and know she’d want to be there.
