I know when I was planning my own wedding I struggled with how I could honor and remember my dad, who had died ten years before, without dwelling on it or making it a big thing. I wanted to remember him in a way that was still in keeping with the spirit of the day (as in, a happy day) but more than a program mention. I couldn’t find many ideas back then, so I tried to round up some in case any of you brides are having the same problem that I did.
I chose to mention several loved ones who weren’t present at our wedding in our program, but I also had my father’s wedding ring stitched to a hanky that was my grandmother’s and carried it around my bouquet. That way he was with me as I walked down the aisle.
Anyone have any ideas to share on how they honored their deceased loved ones at their wedding?
