Hi everyone.

My FW just lost her grandfather and our wedding is four months away. We'd love to commemorate him and our other loved ones either during the ceremony or the reception. What were some of the ways you plan on/did recognize your loved ones on your big day?

    For this part of the loss, there were two ways of how it was done as seen by another way of my SILs sister at her reception.

    Here are the ways for our wedding:

    The note with the Guest Book (created by myself on the computer at home).

    The speech I gave also did mention about my husbands' parents along with others up in the stars watching over us.

    The way my SILs sister celebrated in her reception is by lighting a candle placed on a table in front of a framed picture of their father.

    I am so sorry about the loss. I lost my dad in February and my grandma 2 years ago, two extremely important people to me. So I had a friend of mine make me a sign which I will put at the signing table during the ceremony and probably at the guest book table for the reception. This is kind of what we did.

    My fiance and I are having at our entrance table, a lit candle and a sign that says "Because Someone we love is in heaven.... There's a little bit of heaven at our wedding today"

    A slideshow is a cool idea! I’ll definitely consider it if we can do it in our room.

    We'll place some photos of deceased loved ones with personalized messages in our photo slideshow, which will run on a projected screen all night during cocktail and dinner in a loop. I love Tori's table idea but our family's culture is very sensitive with mixing in anything related to death with happy occasions like weddings.

    My condolences 😢 this is a really helpful thread tho as I was also wondering how to go about this. Love Tori’s display! I think I’ll also do photo tributes, and try to incorporate the different sets of grandparents’ wedding photos if I can track them down!!

    We are doing the same as Tori, a table set up with photos and a candle.

    I'm so sorry for both of your loss Smiley heart

    We honoured our loved ones by having a memorial table with their pictures posted as well as a candle that burned in their memory. We also had my favourite flowers on that table for them (forget me nots)
