That’s really tough, I’m sorry that happened to you.  I can imagine how hard it is and how special they still are to you.  I can’t think of a good way of honoring their memory, I just wanted to send my condolences.  But do be sure to do something special.

I think dropping the flowers like you suggest above is a good way to remember them by.

i agree the flowers are a very nice idea. I also wanted to say that what you have been through is very sad and i am very sorry  for your loss.

– a very big hug-

Would it be too painful for just your Fiance and you to do another balloon release after you say your vows?

That might be a great way to remind your family of the emotional struggle you steal deal with everyday, as well as remembering them and including their memory in the ceremony.

((HUGS)) what if the two of you light two candles at the front of the church (in a pillar vase) so that the twins can be watching as you get married?  you and your fiancee both can light them and you can have a poem on the vases with your wedding date as well as an explanation in the program for them.  you could also do a lot of candles around the entire ceremony and reception site and explain that the candle lit rooms symbolize the light of the girls, and the love from them throughout the room is in the warmth of the candles…

Awwww I am so sorry about the loss of your twins…I can’t even begin to imagine what you went through, but wanted to tell you that you certainly a very strong woman and wonderful mother to include them in your wedding (and remember them in all that you do)!

I LOVE the idea of the petals…I think that would be an amazing way to incorporate them in your ceremony. If you can find someone to do this in your area, you could release two white doves before or after your ceremony to symbolize your angel babies. Just another thought…

How about doing a donation to the March of Dimes in their memory in lieu of party favors?

Have you ever heard of … uh, I’m not sure what to call them, but these: http://www.lunaskylanterns.com/ (okay, looks like this company calls them ‘sky lanterns’) – they’re similar to balloons, a paper lantern with a candle/flame underneath that you light. Then the inside fills with hot air and eventually it rises up into the night sky. You can see them until they’re REALLY far away.

Where I live, people use them to celebrate holidays a few times a year. You could release two of these in lieu of balloons after the ceremony as a memorial to your angels. I would suggest doing a test run (or hiring someone who can light them for you), since they can be a little tricky to light (usually takes about ten to thirty minutes time to get them lit, filled with hot air and ready to fly) if you’ve never done it before.

They’re beautiful though, and since the lanterns are made of paper you can write on them beforehand with the names, etc. of the girls if you want.

Why not tie 2 small pink bows somewhere on your dress or flowers and somewhere for Fiance (his flower or a hanky?)
