    5 Ways to Honor Lost Loved Ones at Your Wedding (Part 2)

    While your wedding is a day for joy and celebration many of us had or will have a loved one missing from their special day.  For me, it was my dad.  Whether you are missing a parent, grandparent, sibling, or dear friend, you may want to honor them in some way.  Keep in mind how fresh your loss is, if you’d like to honor them publicly or privately, and what the most appropriate way to honor them would be.  If you want to do something beyond lighting a candle, making mention in your ceremony program, or having a photo display like the one above, here are some ideas to get you started.

    ways to serve and include cheese in your wedding by oh lovely day
    Did you see yesterday’s farm-to-table wedding shoot?  Because if so, I hinted about today’s post.  What could be better than serving cheese at your wedding?  I mean, it’s CHEESE!  Whether you’re having a low-key backyard wedding or a fancy classic and cool feté, you can include a cheese display.  Or if you don’t think it quite fits in with your wedding style, try it for the rehearsal dinner!  The above photo is perfect for a cocktail hour cheese display, and below are a few other ways to do a cheese table at your wedding.

    You could have a cheese display table with chalkboard descriptions of the cheeses set up during cocktail hour.  Or, if cake isn’t your thing, you can have a cheese wheel cake in lieu of wedding cake (just be sure to serve some other desserts.)

    If you’re having a low-key picnic-style wedding reception, say in your backyard, you could set up a cute table with cheese displayed for guests, with a cute sign like the photo above.

    The best venue for a cheese table would be a vineyard wedding.  You could display the cheeses and give suggested pairings with a wine the vineyard offers or that you’re serving at the bar.  It is like a mini-wine and cheese tasting at your wedding.  Perfect for foodies!
    Do you love the idea of a cheese display table at weddings?  How would you include cheese?

       If it is possible to crush on a company then I've had a major crush on @passivejuicemotel for a while. They mix retro and modern references in such a clever way that I find myself thinking that whoever is behind this brilliance and I should be besties. Besides their Snoop and Ice Cube tees that Calvin has sported in the past, these are some of my current favorites. And how good is that John Snow tee for the holidays!?  Not sponsored, just crushin'
