    The memory frame is new to me. Sounds like a cool idea. we were thinking about having empty chairs for his grandmother and my grandmother, since we lost them both, and putting a picture of them along with a rose in the chair.

      I also like it when a bride has a white bouquet, and a colored rose for each lost loved one. Very sweet!

        We aren't doing anything for lost family which might sound strange but we both agreed it would just make us upset, not to mention the fact that FMIL has married again when his step dad isn't even bloody cold yet but thats a diff story lol

        The only thing I am doing is having a memory frame on my bouquet for a really good friend who was killed in afghanistan 2 months ago, that I feel I have to do.

            The bouquet with different coloured roses is a great idea - too bad I've already ordered my bouquet! I think the memory frames is a great idea though. I had planned on bringing 2 big framed pics of my Dad and Grampa and just having pics of me holding the frames - I saw a brides pictures who had done that and thought it was a good idea. Little memory frames are easier to pack though!!

              My FI's grandmother dying wish was for her to witness us getting married. Of course she was too sick for us to even think about having a wedding. We will have a frame of her in the front row as well and before the ceremony starts we will either light a candle or place flowers on the chair together.

                I went shopping across the Niagara Falls border to the US on Saturday with my girlfriends. I wasn't thinking about going to David's Bridal, but we happend to drive by one & we stopped in. I found this amazing charm for my bouquet. It's the memory frame type like you all suggested - and it's PERFECT!!! David's Bridal - Accessory C01349 FRAME THIS charm with 12mm lobster clasp. This is not a great pic, the other side of the top heart has CZ stones in it, so it's nice & shiny. I will have to take a pic of the one I have so you can see it better.
                Thanks everyone for all your help!!!
