I think if you are willing to do it, no it’s not too much. If people don’t want, they won’t take…. but it IS more work and money spent (but again, if you’re okay with that, why the heck not)

While I understand the very considerate thought behind it, I just don’t feel the angel pins are appropriate for a wedding celebration.

We had this in our programs-

We’d like to thank our family for all their love and support which made us who we are, and brought us to this special day.
…Our friends, with whom we experience life’s joys, and whom we hope will be a part of our lives throughout the years to come.
…And those whose memory we forever preserve in our hearts: (list of names of those who had passed)”

I would not count a guardian angel pin as a favor- I wouldn’t pick one up/wear one, nor would DH.

I really like the sentiment of the angels. But a lot of people won’t even see/take them. Is there a way you can put the saying on the back of your program and then tie or pin them to the actual program?

I would think that the guardian angel pin is a nice gesture, but noramally I don’t want to stick pins in my fancy dresses.

ABSOLUTELY love the hot chocolate favors! So freaking cute. Esp since you have a winter wedding date.

I love the flipflops and hot chocolate, but I’m not a fan of the angels.

I don’t love the angels, and I wouldn’t want to stick a pin in my dress.  We did something like PP and put remembrances in the back of the program.

@SimplyMrsC:  Then maybe do a small memorial table in the reception?

As a guest, I wouldn’t take a pin either. 

I think a mention in your programs in sufficient.

The angels are a little “funeral-ish” for me. And even if I wanted one I probably wouldn’t stick a pin through my dress. Could you do a little area with photos of those who have passed with a nice quote or poem in a frame or something like that?

Those hot chocolate jars are really cute, but they’re HUGE! I suggest if you want to do them, do a little cellophane packet with a cute label, containing just one or two servings of mix.

we put it in our programs, too–the last page read:


In Loving Memory


This page is dedicated to our

loved ones who are

here in spirit and will forever

be in our hearts—

especially Scott’s father,



Although we cannot see you,

we know that you are here

smiling down,

and 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.

Since you aren’t having programs, maybe put a little sign on the tables?
