I had a memorial table at our reception that included candles, photos, and a little poem. I also had a pendant on my bouquet with his picture on it. My pastor also mentioned him at the beginning of the ceremony and we had a section in the program that listed our passed loved ones. Those are just some ideas. We tossed around lighting one of those floating fire lanterns and letting it go at the end of the night, but it was raining and wouldn’t have worked anyways! There is a ton of things you can do

I have seen the memorial table many times with photos. I also thought it was nice when the officiant welcomed the guests that he also mentioned loved ones that could not be there. One other thing I have seen is to save a seat at the ceremony for him.

im so sorry for your loss! my mom passed away 11 years (yesterday) ago so i understand trying to incorporate without making it super sad. one thing im doing is attaching small locket size frames to my bouquet with her pic and another for my uncle.  http://www.etsy.com/listing/71394313/wedding-bouquet-memory-locket-holds

i also say on pinterest a girl had them attached to her heels so her dad could “walk” her down the isle
