I’m so sorry for your loss. I lost my father five years ago and he never got to meet my fiance either. It’s just so hard, but I’m trying to focus on the fact that there are so many others alive and well that will share our day with us.

Also, I know my dad will be there in spirit, and you will feel the love and support of your parents from those that held them in their hearts. I agree about not doing the “empty chair rose” thing, but I am going to make a note in the program and light a remembrance candle on the day of.

So sorry for your loss!  However, I am very happy that you have found great love and are so excited to be engaged!  

Candles are very nice!  Lots of brides will put a charm or small token of someone special on their bouquet.  Perhaps a tiny photo of their wedding picture or something (I have seen this on other threads before…)?  Or a piece of jewelry that was important to one or both of them?  There are lots of wonderful ways to remember loved ones on your special day!
