    Isn't this a fantastic poem?? I found it here a while ago & am incorporating into the last page of my welcome books for my step-dad passed away about a year & a half ago. I wanted him to be thought of & honored that week - but I didn't want anyway (my mom especially) really sad that day.

    I am also putting a memory frame with his picture in it in my bouquet so he is with me that day.

    There are a lot of great ideas on here...

I didn't tell everyone except the people that I knew it would mean alot too....it was a nice subtle way of remembering them on that day in my life.
      I think this is a wonderful way of incorporating family members or really close friends who have passed away into a ceremony.

        That is so beautiful!! I will have to keep that in mind. Do you think it will look odd if I just had one different kind/color of flower??

          I decided I am going to wear a piece of my grandmother's jewellery. It was something she loved so I thought it would be a good way to remember her on my day. Only a few people know (mom, dad and fh).

            These are all great ideas! FI's best friend passed away six months before our wedding - we had a picture of him and FI's grandparents on our guestbook table with a plaque that said something to the effect of "On our wedding day, we think lovingly of those who hold a special place in our hearts"

              My grandfather passed away about 7 years ago but he is still a huge part of my life. I am going to be carrying his handkerchief in my dress (or somewhere). I am also trying to find a way to acknowledge those who have passed on in our lives without making it a sad thing, but more a happy remembrance.

                  Steal away! We wanted a way to remember FI's Best Friend without making everyone cry and super depressed - and his wife and kids were there and they were touched by the pic (we had asked her first if the kids would be OK with it)
