I think its lovely. We used this one for my husband’s mom:

 If Roses Grow in Heaven

 If roses grow in Heaven,

Lord please pick a bunch for me,

Place them in my mother’s arms

And tell her they are from me.

Tell her I love her and I 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 in my heart

That will never go away.

This is really long but it is a poem that will be placed in it’s own frame on the memorial table at my daughter’s wedding for all the grandparents no longer with us.  It will also be inside the program since we are doing “playbills” (the wedding is in a theatre) and we will drape off chairs. 

Though your smile is gone forever,

and your hands we cannot touch,

Still we have so many memories,

Of the ones we loved so much

Your memory is our keepsake,

With which we’ll never part,

God has you in his keeping, We have you in our hearts

although we cannot see you

We know that you are here

Smiling down, watching over us

As we say “I DO”

forever in our hearts

Forever in our lives

 and so we say our vows

In loving memory of you

Ok ladies your making me tear up here!! I love the idea of using some form of “we’ve saved a seat for you” in your wording. What a beautiful sentiment. Depending on if you want something framed or if you just want a small sign you could go either way. Is it an entire table devoted to these chairs or are they part of something else? The more room you have the more options you have.
