We wanted to honor those we’ve lost without putting a damper on the ceremony, so our officiant just did a brief “moment of silence for those who are no longer with us” during the ceremony.

We are collecting family photos of loved ones past and present to be displayed in photo frames. We also borrowed a photo album from mr. LK’s Gramma that will be displayed along with the framed photos. he photos will be accompanied by a tall cylinder vase that has 3 submerged large white cala lillies. White calas are a traditional flower of rememberance, and calas are my favorite flower, so it fit perfectly.

My brother died a few years ago and it was really hard not having him there but I also didn’t want to make a HUGE deal out of it because it is supposed to be a happy day. So, my sisters had an extra rose when they walked down the aisle and they just laid it in an empty chair reserved for him. No pictures, no anouncements, no moments of silence. It was something small but meaningfull to my family. Everybody who knew him, understood what it was for and those who didn’t, didn’t. It was the perfect amount of aknowledgement without bringing the ceremony down or making me or my family cry for all the wrong reasons.

I’ve seen people have a table with small photos of those not there and a candle for memorial.  I want to do something similar to that.  Maybe flowers instead of a candle since we will be outside.
