Need help~Any suggestions of how to remember a loved one during a ceremony?

Recommended Posts

Thank you all very much for the advice and great suggestions. I do like the photo frame idea being tied to the bouqet. I think that anything else will really upset his family.

Will they allow you to drop some flower over the side of the boat?

 

I have two loved one who we are going to ask the minister to mention during the services. We REALY know they would want to be there but they are in some special blessed place ...

CJEB~I'm not really sure due to the fact that they are so strict about flowers i really don't think that they will. We are thinking of an Italian Love song that we can play during our guest being sitted. I think the best way to be somewhat secretive about it without upsetting anyone is to add the charm or photot frame to my flowers.

I think its difficult because my mum died 8 years ago and FI's dad died over 2 years ago and his mother is now remarried (long story!! which makes me spit blood lol)

 

Anyway both FI and decided we didn't want anything said or done. We don't need things to remember them we do anyway.

 

He will wear his dad's kilt and as my dad won't be there because he lives just too far away and he can't be anywhere near FI's family or murder will be done lol and my brother died as a baby I've got a charm bracelet with 3 charms one for each of them, angel for mum, devil for dad (lmao) and a baby boot for my brother. No-one but my family and FI will have a clue and that suits me.

 

I don't want to be sad on my wedding day - but each to their own really

 

If I could have got away with a picture on my flowers I would have done but it will just cause trouble with FMIL S&M.gif

 

I like the idea of the balloons and flowers over the side of the boat tho

I really liked the idea of the picture frame on the bouquet. I saw some other versions where they have antique style charms you can have the picture placed in. The link is exclusively weddings.com. Its about $36.00

Tim's mom passed away 14 years ago this July and all of his grandparents are passed and we just buried one his uncle's today. I would love to honor all of them in some way, but especially his mom. I never met his mother and because of that I feel really compelled to have her a part of our wedding. We had a family meeting about what should be done, I suggested some things and the conclusion was made that we will have an open seat for her at the end of the aisle and since we have 2 aisles (guys down one, girls down the other, meeting in the center) Tim will leave yellow flower on her chair when he comes down the aisle. I am also going to honor her by having a button from her wedding gown sewn to mine, it's private and personal but I'll know it's there and that means a lot to me. We are also doing programs to honor the other's in our lives that couldn't be there...

 

I have seen frosted cylinder vase/candle holder that you can have the name etched into and place it somewhere where it can be seen but not the center focus if that would be more suitable.

    • Good afternoon, I wanted to inquire if anyone has or knows someone who got married at this resort. How was it? How are the coordinators? Packages that were chosen. Any help would be greatly appreciated.   Thanks.
    • Hi all! I know this is an old thread... but just in case there are other destination wedding brides out there with the same question, I thought I would answer! My guy and I live in Texas and just got our marriage license (yay!). We are getting married in Playa del Carmen, Mexico. The Dallas County clerk informed us that we can get our marriage license in Texas, bring it and a Texas-registered officiant to Mexico, have the ceremony in Mexico, then bring the marriage license back to Texas to file and it will be LEGAL in the US.  In  other words, we can legally get married in Mexico using our Texas marriage license and officiant (who is a family friend), then file the paperwork when we get home. Where it says 'county in which ceremony was performed' on the license, we just put in Playa del Carmen, Mexico and bam! Married :) I do not know if this is true for other states, but it is CONFIRMED for Texas! I suggest asking the clerk when you register for your marriage license. I am overjoyed that we can have a US-legal marriage in Mexico so our wedding date on our license will be the actual day! NO blood tests, or getting married before or after the trip required!  
    • Every Bride spends a lot of time researching and worrying about her perfect wedding dress. While many Indian brides choose the traditional red colour for their bridal gown, a few of them find some different colours to wear on their special day. Here is a description of how to choose an Indian wedding dress that suits your skin tone. 1) Fair complexion: You can choose any shade of blue or bright shades of pink and red. In the shades of blue- select scuba blue or royal blue. Among other colours this season, you can pick up your dress in tangerine.   2) Wheatish complexion Just select those colours which bring out the warmth in your complexion. Some of the best options for you are tangy orange, saffron yellow, vibrant shades of red, mint green and hot pink.   3) Dusky complexion: If you have an olive skin tone, then you can pull off any rich and dark colour quite well. So, the colours like classic blue, marsala, burnt orange and brick red are just perfect for you. Also the metallic silver, gold and bronze will even flatter your face pretty well
    • I will be using the hPage Website Builder to create a free website for our wedding. I am planning to post wedding updates, wedding photos, wedding reminders, and wedding articles regarding our upcoming marriage there. For RSVP, I am using Facebook events since almost all we invited have facebook and it would be easier to get their "yes" or "no" confirmation there. In case anyone is interested as well here's their site: hPage Website Builder - https://www.hpage.com
