FI’s Grandmother passed away (unexpectedly) last week, and it got me thinking about ways to commemorate her, as well as a few other loved ones who have passed, at our wedding.
I would like to have some sort of memorial table, in our reception area (it will be in a restored barn). I was thinking of transferring photos of the ones who have passed onto blocks of wood, similar to this:
I am curious to hear if any of you are doing/have done something similar. I would love to hear and see your ideas as I am stuck deciding what else to put in this area!

I love that idea!! we had a memory table but it was photos in mis-matching frames. we also made up cards with their names and their relation to bride/groom so people knew who they were….

The cards are a great idea, I will have to do something similar! I didn’t think of that. Just because WE know who they are, doesn’t mean everyone else does! Thanks!

I love the idea of transferring pictures onto wood, especially since you are getting married in a barn. That will look so great.
I’m trying to figure out something for our wedding as well. My mom, brother, and his long-time girlfriend are all deceased and I know I’m doing this with my bouquet
This way I know I’ll have them with me when I’m walking down the aisle (oh boy, I’m getting choked up thinking about it and I’m at work)
There are a lot of unique ways to memorialize people at weddings. I’m going to have a little something written at the bottom of our program too.

At my sisters wedding they had a chair on each side of the aisle for the family members of the bride and of the groom. They also had a vase with roses behind the alter, one for each family member that had passed on.
