So we plan on having a bouquet of flowers up at the altar in memory of my mom who died when I was 19. We’ll put a note in the program about the flowers and her.
I’m just wondering do you think the note should include all of our deceased family. It will be quite a long list if we do that. Obviously we miss all of our family who can’t be there with us but will it look bad if we only mention my mom?

I saw on Pinterest where you would put her picture on the seat that would have been hers. I do not know the situtation, I’m not sure if that would be too hard for you. Just a suggestion

@ashkat: My mom passed away when I was 17 and my FI’s grandmother recently passed. I realized my own grandmother might have her feelings hurt if I didn’t include my grandfather who is passed as well as my great grandparents whom I was close to. We are doing a nice candle on the guestbook/cardbox table with a framed sign that says, “We have lost many loved ones along the way, but we know they are smiling with us today.”

I don’t think you need to include everyone who has passed, perhaps just your closest relatives and the ones you would miss the most, like your mom.
