I’ve seen couples light a candle at the beginning of the ceremony and say a prayer for people they wished could have been with them.

I’ve also seen cool memorial tables at receptions that have photos of lost loved ones. Pretty sweet.

My favorite are the little bouquet memory charms I’ve seen on etsy. It’s a tiny photo charm you hang off your bouquet. I’ll be getting one with a photo of me and my grandfather who passed last September.

I think no matter what you do, turn it into a celebration of your grandmother’s life. It’s a happy day for you both and she would have been happy for you.

I think we are going to do this at our wedding. Just a table with photos of the people we miss. Our dog just passed Friday. Would it be tacky to include a photo of our pup? Not meaning to thread jack, just something I have also been wondering about. I planned just to have some framed photos of everyone, maybe lable who they are for the other sides. Like “Grandma So-and-so” etc.
