@nellie_pie:  I put a little memorial for my grandfather on the table with the place cards so that everyone would see it when they stopped to pick up their card.  It was just a little two-opening picture frame with my favorite photo of him on one side and a little poem on the other.  I totally don’t think it’s weird to have that!  I wanted to let it be known that  I missed that he was there…you know?  You do what feels right to you, and who cares what anyone else thinks of it.  🙂

I think it’s fine.  I like MIssBMarie1428’s idea.  It’s not too much.  But people can see it.  I am sure it will mean the world to your Fiance.

I’m gonig to have one as well.  I think it’s a nice tribute to those who can’t be there in person, but who are always there in our hearts…

All my grandparents have passed in the last few years, and FI’s mother. So we will be having a table with photos of them on their wedding days, with a candle and flowers and a framed poem. Keeps the wedding feel, but does the job, which is having part of them withus.

If you’re worried about it being sad, you could combine the photos with other family photos and/or childhood photos of you and your fiance.  That way they’ll be represented but the focus can be on their important roles in your families rather than their absence at your wedding.
