I think it would be lovely. What about having a chair or him in front with his pic saying reserved for father of bride who could not attend or something?

I think it’s a very sweet gesture. I like the idea of reserving a seat. Another idea I heard about (a friend’s mom was having chemo and couldn’t attend) was a prayer candle near the altar in the venue that the couple lit together. It was mentioned in the program.

I think that’s a lovely idea. Are you considering Skyping the wedding to your dad so he can watch?

ILOVEBHH:  Of course it’s ok!!!! It’s your wedding. So long as you want to do it, and you’re not hurting anyone, who cares what anyone else thinks?

Have a wonderful wedding, and best wishes to your dad who I’m sure would want to be there.
