My FH’s father passed away and they were very close, as was the whole family.  I talked to FH about this and asked if he wanted to do something to memorialize his dad on our day, FH said no.  He didn’t want to bring up sad memories for the family on our happy day.  The one thing he is doing is wearing a locket on the inside of his lapel, only where he will know it is and close to his heart.

We ran into the same dilemma.

We opted to have our friend who was marrying us say a short piece about my father and my husband’s maternal grandmother. Rather than put it into the program.

I think the locket idea -pinned to inside of gown or in your bouquet would be lovely. 🙂

If you do decide to put anything in the programs, I would let your relatives know before had, so that way it isn’t a shock the day of.

And I love the idea of a rememberance locket

I would let their close survivors know before hand if you decide to put something in the program. I think they would appreciate it that their loved one is remembered. Whether or not you put it into the program, I’m sure they will be thinking of them and if they are in the program, it’s kind of like they’re more present. Best of luck!
