I was reading Miss Bacons post from yesterday and she was talking about tributes. The FHs father has passed away and he doesn’t want to pay any public tribute to him as it is so emotional still for his family. He will, instead, be wearing a locket behind his lapel with his picture for a private tribute.
We are doing a military tribute at the reception. We are asking everyone to remain seated while Tim McGraws “If Your Reading This” plays and then ask all of the active and former military members stand to be thanked. Both of our sides are heavily military, and without them, we would not be able to do what we do.
Are you going to pay any tributes to family or friends who can’t celebrate with you? How will you do it?

I, too, am a little wary of the public tribute thing. I like the idea of the secret locket that only a few people know about. 🙂
Jews like to light candles for people. So I’m sure there will be some candles involved somehow.
POST COUNT BITCHES.

@MissHoneyBun: You should do a post on the jewish traditions of tributes. I would be really interested in reading that.
Paying it forward…..

We are doing fun tributes so that they won’t be too emotional. My father proposed to my mother with a cracker jack box and her ring was the prize. He died when I was young so my fiance is going to throw a cracker jack box instead of a garter. And for my grandfather who passed several years ago my sister and I are going to teach The Achy Breaky Heart line dance. He loved that song and loved to line dance. We thought fun would be better and not so emotional.

I am going to sew my father’s wedding band inside the bodice of my dress. He passed away almost 7 years ago exactly. He was a lot older than your typical father (he was 49 when I was born) so he actually always told me it would be my brother that would walk me down the aisle. I’ve been trying to think of a song for the brother/sister dance that would be a tribute to my dad but everything is too sad.
