I am so sorry for your loss.
i have been there with both my parents, and my FIs mum, there will be 3 absences at my wedding. and we will remember them by putting a small picture of them on my tables, as table numbers. we have also mentioned them in the wedding programme, although that may be too late for you, you have probably already had yours done.
maybe you could get the priest/pastor or whoever, to say a few words about him, or write a poem for him….
this is a terribly sad time for you right now i know, and the next few weeks until your wedding will be tough, so i hope you will be strong, and have the strength to pull off this wedding that your dad was so excited about……do it for him. (((((hugs)))))

Im so sorry for your loss. I didn’t lose a parent, but I lost my grandma the year before our wedding. I put a memorial candle on the alter, also a single red rose (her favorite flower) on the seat she would have sat on. My side of the family also wore red to remember her.
((HUGS)) It will get better in time

I am so, so sorry for your loss.
One thing I thought of as I was reading your post – it’s wonderful that your father was able to get to know your fiance before he passed away, and that he liked him and was excited for your marriage. And even though he can’t be with you physically on the wedding day, at least he did get to help you with the planning and see your joy as you were creating your big day. I know it’s probably not a huge comfort right now, but still, that’s a very special thing.

I am so sorry sweetie. ((hugs)) I can’t even imagine. I’m so glad though that he was able to be involved in the planning and your dress, that is a gift itself. I hope your day is beautiful and I’m sure your dad will be with you every step of the way.

@FireflyT: This is a hard transition during a joyful time. I feel for you and deepest sympathies.
A good way to keep your dad’s spirit close during your wedding day is to add a momento to your wedding accessories. A friend of mine lost her dad to cancer a few weeks before her wedding. She had his cufflinks added to her wedding bouquet and during their ceremony, the poured a libation in memory of.
It was a wonderful, yet an intimate to honor her dad.
I hope you find peace and solace during this time.

I am so sorry. Your dad’s presence will be with you, as he will not miss your day. He wants you to have a happy day-so rejoice in your day as much as you can. God bless you.

I’m not planning my wedding yet, but I lost my dad and I plan to put a picture of him and I on a locket to attach to my bouquet. I think it’ll be something nice that I’ll know is there. I also think since he helped you with a lot of stuff, he’ll be there in many, many ways.

I’ve been planning this wedding without my mom and it has been the most difficult aspect of it. But I know she’ll be there in spirit, as your dad will be. I’m happy to hear that he was able to help you plan in the beginning and his touches will be a part of your day.

My deepest condolences to you and your family. A way to keep your dad with you that day would be to tuck a small pic of him into your bouquet. I’m doing this for 2 loved ones I miss greatly.
