You could “reserve” a chair for her at the ceremony with a photo and a vase of flowers on the chair.

You could also have an “in memory” section in the program as well.

I’d love to hear suggestions too. We want to honor my grandfather and my recently passed brother in law.

I really wanted to honor my grandmother because we were so close.  Besides wearing her wedding ring, she was mentioned at the beginning of the ceremony just to remember her and then at the end of the ceremony, our recessional song was dedicated to her (she loved Frank Sinatra so it was a Sinatra song).

I’ve seen some brides (I’m sure grooms could do this in their bouts or as a cufflink or  somewhere too) put small pics in their bouquets.

@auggiefrog:   That sounds like a great idea, I also liked your picture that you attached.

Just thought I would share what my Fiance and I are doing to honour our grandfathers and my grandmother. We are going to frame nice pictures of them and put them on the table near the guestbook with some flowers.

My husbands mother also died in his early twenties and at our wedding we had a little table with an orchid, a framed picture of her, and this poem framed:

If Roses grow in Heaven, 
Lord please pick a bunch for me, 
Place them in my Mother’s arms 
And tell her they’re from me. 
Tell her I love her and miss her, 
And when she turns to smile, 
Place a kiss upon her cheek 
And hold her for awhile. 
Because remembering her is easy, 
I do it every day, 
But there’s an ache within my heart 
Because I am missing her today. 

I don’t know the author.

This is what we’re doing too.

FI’s mother passed away in July after being diagnosed with cancer last January. We are  making a donation to the Cancer Society in memory of her. I like the idea of reserving a chair for her at the ceremony.

Both of my parents are deceased. I am planning on have a small table with 2 place settings where they would have sat, with a sign telling what the memorial is all about along with some pics of them.

Fiance lost an uncle he was very close to last year, and I lost my gramma in June.  So I found an antique locket brooch pin and put pictures of both of them in it, it will be pinned to my bouquet.

We also have family wedding photos from several generations. They will be displayed on a table, with tea lights under those who are no longer with us.
