Can you wear something of hers? From her wedding day or a favorite piece of jewelry?

I’m very sorry you lost your mother and am glad you’re going forward with the wedding as she would have wanted you to do. 

Do you want to honor her in a private way? or for everyone to share in you honoring her?  If it’s private I think wearing a piece of jewelry (or putting in your bouquet) is a great idea, just as mepayne suggested. If you’d like to honor her at the reception you could have a table set up with a few photos in frames and in another frame write a special memory of your mom, a funny story or how your mom felt about you marrying your FI.

I know if I was a guest at your wedding I’d like to see pictures of your mom and especially read a story about who she was and what she meant to you.

We are going to do this for our wedding.

My FI’s mother died on November 6th, 2011 and it has been hard without her…

I’m sorry your mother has passed….

My FI will be lighting the candle after I walk down the isle. 

Our card will say, “In loving memory of ________________. Who will always be in our hearts.” 

Then I will place a flower from my bouquet on an empty seat. 

Some people think that is insensitive, or creepy but to us it is completely the opposite.

I am so sorry for your loss. This idea might be a bit hard for you as it is so soon after your Mom’s passing. I would have a hard time not tearing up if I saw my FI wearing this, but I love the sentimentality of taking an old pocket watch and adding a pic.

I saw something on weddingbee earlier today. Another bee’s mother had passed away before her wedding, and she pinned a picture of her mother in her dress, so that she would be with her the entire day. I thought that was sweet.
