That would be sweet and not weird at all. Also, he was your father, so it doesn’t matter if he was married to your mother anymore or not.

I don’t think that’s weird at all. You could put a framed photo of him on the seat as well.

That is a great idea.  I love it!  My brother, mom, and brother’s long time girlfriend have all passed away and on my wedding day I had something tied into my bouquet for each one of them.  It made me feel so at peace on my wedding day knowing I had something representing each one of them there with me.

@kmarie719:  I think putting a photo on the chair would be great! Or a sign perhaps? I watched an episode of four weddings and one of the brides released a singular balloon in honor of a loved on, the string had their name attached, it was beautiful!

This is sweet and not weird at all! I don’t think anyone who’s ever lost a loved one would think it was weird.

I will be honoring my grandmother & grandfather in a similiar way.

Not at all weird! In fact, during the Victorian Era photos were often taken with empty chairs to show that a loved one had passed!

I think its a great way to bring your father into the ceremony

no, not odd at all. Very considerate and a wonderful way to honor your father and your family.

@kmarie719:  Don’t put a photo of him on the seat (that would look really weird) but an empty chair sounds like a really sweet way to remember him.

I’ve heard of this being done and I don’t think it’s weird at all.

I wanted to honor my grandfather, whom I was really close to growing up, so I made a memory charm with his photo and attached it to my bouquet.
