Everyone wants to believe that their loved ones are going to be ever present. Unfortunately, there God has a different agenda and calls on our loved ones before we are ready. It is not a pleasant emotion to deal with on you wedding day, but it is a blessing to be able to do so.
Today’s question is a hard one to deal with, “How do I honor my mother, who recently passed away, at my upcoming wedding?”
I have seen this done many times in a few different ways. You want it to be a subtle, but caring way, of honoring the ones you loved. Whether it is a grandparent, parent, sibling or friend, you want them and your guest to know they are loved and missed.
* Another way is to have an open seat with a rose or other type of flower noting their place in your ceremony.
* I have even see couples display the photos of the loved ones at the reception by a memory board or the head table.
Any way you choose to remember your loved one, it will truly be up to you. To be able to include their memory in your special day is all that really matters.
I hope I was able to help anyone dealing with the sadness of losing a loved one. If you have witnessed another form of memory, please share.
