Maybe in the program or on a little card on your tables you could have a little memorial mention of him and the name of the foundation people could donate to. I have seen memorials done like that for grandparents and such.

@Mrs. Meowerson: i like the idea of a photo at the altar too.  or during the speeced time, maybe someone can say something to acknowledge what a great friend he was…..the best man perhaps?

You could make a donation in his name in lieu of favors.

I was in a wedding where my friend held a place in the the bridal party for her brother that had passed away. I walked down the aisle by myself and everyone knew why I didn’t have a partner, that it would’ve been her brother.

I’m so so sorry for your loss. My childhood bestfriend died almost two years ago in her sleep as a result of a diabetic coma at the age of 25. It was rough…

I think acknowledgement in both the wedding program, and perhaps a candle lit for him and any other family members who have passed, might be a good ideas.

We’re doing something like:

A potem to consider (but it’s really written with immediate bride’s family in mind, but I’ve changed for a ‘him’. You could make other modifications to have it fit.

Dear Lord please clear a spot for him

he should have the perfect view.

Their friends are getting married today,

and we are counting on you.

Let us feel his presence;

as we journey down the aisle.

But let us notice their absence;

if only for a short while.

Let us stop to think of him;

As the bride is given away.

And know that if he could;

He would be here with us today.

Dear Lord please clear a spot for him;

he should have the perfect view.

And if we should get sad today;

Dear Lord I count on you.
