I’m not exactly sure how this works. Is it for people you wish were at the wedding? People who’ve died and honoring them? I tried googling but the wording escaped me and I got a lot about how to do memorials. I’ve never been to a wedding that had them, and I really want one for my Grandmother. She’s been gone for about 4 years now but I think she would of fallen in love with my SO and my son. I just want that honor of honoring her there. I know my SO has some family on his side that have been passed for a while now and I’m not sure if he’d like one for his family.
I’d like to make a little blurb about those who passed with their dates, is this disrespectful?
I honestly have no idea about any of this. I’m also not sure where this belonged. Etiquette, Decor or tradtion.

- Wedding: July 2016 - Volunteer Park and the Stimson-Green Mansion
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.
