Maybe you could have a rose or bouquet on the pew where your dad would sit? As for a memorial table, I’ve seen where people put up pictures of deceased loved ones with candles.

Neither Darling Husband or I have any grandparents, they have all passed away.  We decided to honour them in our own special way (I wore some of my grandmothers jewellery and Darling Husband had his g-pa’s watch.)

We decided against any kind of public memorial, because we felt like it might make us or our guests (especially our mother’s) sad/emotional.  We wanted to keep the day celebratory and upbeat.  We knew they were there watching over us that day and that’s all that mattered 🙂  But, we are pretty private people about that sort of thing.

My dad passed when I was four. I am doing the charm on my bouqet, I will probably sew something of his into my dress and I’ll be placing a rose on ‘his’ chair when I walk down the aisle. We will also have a memorial table at the reception for all the other family members who have passed away. We are going to do different candles and then a frame with all of their names. Maybe pictures of them by the candles, havn’t decided on that yet. Sorry about your loss, that sucks. 🙁

We had a line at the end of our programs that said something about in memory of our loved ones who have passed especially the bride’s grandmothers and listed their names because I wanted to especially remember them. The priest also read this at the part of the mass where they normally ask for prayers for a deceased person. We also had a table with a small vase of flowers up by the alter (not on it but on the side near Mary) with a note in memory of a close family friend who had passed away 2 days prior.
