veganjenni :  first of I am so very sorry for your loss. I hope this will help, but the way I honoured my dad was by having a poise of flowers made up to match my bouquet that was put on his grave. And also, I had a locket with a picture of my dad that I tied to my bouquet, so he still walked with me down the aisle. I also didn’t want to make a big deal out of it so only my very very close family and husband really knew about it. People did find out after as there was pictures taken of the locket and bouquet, but I could deal with it privately by that point.

I jusst went through this, this past friday bee. first my condolences.
I wore one of her rings on my right hand and during my father daughter dance i played photos of her. It was touching for me and my father and at one point my husband came in and hugged us both. It wont be easy. You will feel so many emotions on the day surrounded that thought of her alone. If you bawl…who cares. you love her dearly and it just shows how much you wish she were there.

My bridesmaids suprised me with handing me my bouquet, right before we started photos, with a photo of my mom in her wedding dress on one side and the other side a photo of her with my grandpa (both have passed away). I literally bawled. It was awesome but sad at the same time. I cried pretty much all day. I had done laterns at our alter in memory of everyone that had passed away and a sign at the guest book table. I had my dad and me dance to one of my mom’s favorite songs, Let it Be by the Beatles. We both danced together and bawled like babies and so did everyone else that knew….it was really emotional and sentimental. I never cry in front of people, but it was so perfect at the same time.
