@crr219191:  Don’t tell her? Why does she have to know what is or isn’t going to be included in the program? Day of you won’t have time to explain. After you can have a conversation with her if she’s upset, but you’ll have more time then and won’t have the stress of planning on top of it.

I would just include his name in the ceremony program, to be honest, and leave him off your memory table.

Since your great aunt is allowing you to be married at her place, pretending that someone very important to her never existed could be a slap in the face, and listing the names of departed family members within a couple degrees of relation in the program is pretty standard and doesn’t have to be very personal. The memory table is much more personal, and hopefully your FI’s great aunt will be supplicated by just having his name in the program.

I had originally planned on having a table with a picture and a candle for each person – but unfortunately it would end up being quite a few pictures and candles. So instead my Fiance and I decided to include at the beginning of our ceremony before anything begins: “Before we begin, D & M would like to take a moment to remember the people who cannot be present with us today, but are in our hearts”.

My friend lost her father when she was young as well. What she did is reserved a chair in his honor at the front of the ceremony and had his old baseball glove on the seat. She then placed what would have been his boutonier ontop of it. After the ceremony she placed it on a small table with pictures of the two of them from when she was younger. 🙂
