What about a pocket watch with something engraved on it to remind Fiance of his dear friend?

How unfortunate, Gretchen. We have a very similar situation & are thinking about something…. but we don’t want to upset anyone.  i like the idea of the charm.  We are going to have something in the program something along the lines of…

Although they could not be here to share in our wedding day, they are in our hearts: NAME

OR

 On this special milestone in our lives, we wish to lovingly remember those close in our hearts who are no longer with us.  We know they are here with us in spirit.  The wonderful memories of the precious times shared with each of them will be cherished forever. NAME. 

 I am anxious to hear if other Bees have done something in particular.

I lost my grandpa in February that I was really close to, as I’m the only grandchild. My fiance has also lost his aunt and grandma that he was really close to. We’re mentioning them in the program as mentioned above, and having a rose at the alter in memory of each side of our families. We will present the rose to each of our parents by the end of the day. (There will be 2) We are also having photos of those we have lost on display at the reception with a nice poem that says:

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

I just thought of something else that may work. Maybe if there’s something that reminds your fiance of his friend, he could carry that. Or even play a song at the reception and dedicate it to him, like his favorite song or just a song that reminds you of him.

I lost my grandfather almost 4 years ago and my Fiance lost his father 5 years ago. My grandmother is still very sensitive and so is FI’s family. So we are doing little tealight candle that say: “In memory… of a Life so beautifully lived… a heart so deeply loved.”

@Ginger87: This one is from Signals.com, but I’ve seen similar ones at Hallmark stores.
