My father is deceased so we are going to write something at the end of the program honoring him. But I don’t want to leave out others who have passed. The problem is, we have so many relatives who have passed. 3 grandparents, 2 aunts, 2 cousins, and one uncle. Should we list them all or will this be depressing?

I think you should honor who you want. This is what we are doing-my grandfather (the wedding is on the day of his birthday), my grandparents on my dad’s side and my FI’s grandfather. We are also honoring his cousin who passed away at 20 4 years ago. We are going to leave it at that as we could go on and on and instead just say something about remembering all of those who have passed that have touched our lives in some way. I think limiting it is important-but keep in mind I don’t think it will be depressing but moving for those that know the people that have passed on.

First do what makes you happy ..and second you could have a memory candle that is in memory of all that couldnt be there but are watching from above. There are alot of poems on the internet that you could print out, so you wouldnt have to list all the names…. We are having the guys wear American flag pins and we are placeing mini flag throughout the wedding in memory of those who fought and the friends that my FI lost in the war. I have a small picture of my grandparents that will hang from my flowers….these are just some examples …. I hope this helped
