Honoring the Grandmother's...what do you think?

Recommended Posts

There's a thread on here somewhere about the frames from MyJeanM being kinda cheap and not worth the $15. So some of the girls bought small lockets and DIYed them. I'll see if I can find it.

I'm going to tuck a single iris bloom, my Nana's favorite flowers on the underside of my bouquet (so it's like she's holding my hand) and carry the handkerchief she did at her wedding. Great, now I'm crying! I don't even know if I should bother with make-up since it appears I will be bawling through the ENTIRE wedding! LOL!

So here is what I am thinking:

We will buy the memory picture frame things that you hang from your bouquet and I will have that on my bouquet for my grandma and then at somepoint before the ceremony I will give my mom a flower (not sure what kind) with one of those picture things on it and tell her to place it on an empty seat next to her and fiance will do the same thing with his mom. This way I incorporate the picture frame thing and the open seat thing (loved them both) and it's nice but subtle...

I just don't know how we should give it to them and what type of flower is best? My wedding flowers are daisies...is this appropriate or should I use a rose?
My grandma also just recently passed away this past week and I have been thinking a lot about how to incorporate her in the wedding and I do have to say thinking about this scenario that you describe here touches me deeply… my grandmother loved every flower but her favorite flowers were the Orchids…

I love this idea and if it makes me emotional right now I cant even imagine the day of…

Thank you for sharing this wonderful Idea hug2.gif
