At the bottom of our program under the wedding party, we put “In Loving Memory Of..” and listed all three of my fiance’s grandparents who are no longer with us.

For the ceremony we are having an empty seat at the front with a single rose laid on it for my grandmother who is deceased. We are also doing an “In Loving Memory” on our program fans

I’m aknowledging deceased family in the ceremony itself.  After the gathering words “We have gathered here today…” I’m having thank the parents, family and friends section, real brief saying we acknowledge and thank you for your support, and adding on to that, “The couple would also like to acknowledge the family that could not be here today, Grandma and Grandpa so and so for (insert something special about them or something you would like to acknowledge) and SO and so…”  Etc.  Just a quick mention.  Remembering them and their influence without turning the wedding into a memorial service (not to sound harsh).

I purchased a photo frame with two spots in it that says “Family” on the bottom, and I am going to put my favorite photo of my grandfather on one side and a poem that i found online about how his granddaughter is a bride today and he should have the perfect view from Heaven, yadda yadda.  I have to say yadda yadda because I’m at work and I’ll cry if I read more of it. Smile  Anyway, I’m going to put this on the placecard table where everyone will see it going into the reception.
