How to tasefully go about...

Last year my FI best friend died in a plane crash when they where deployed, Well he wanted Josh to be in his wedding with him, but after he died wedding planing has felt like he was missing something, so I asked him if he wanted his friends wife to stand in for him. He was so excited and when he asked her she was more than willing to do it
But I want to say something to her at the wedding or do something for her to say a HUGE thank you because I know how hard it will be almost the year anniversary of her husbands death to be at a wedding. and it just means so much to my FI that she will be standing by his side.
I've never met her but I love her and just giving her the same thing as the bridesmaid (witch I am) just dose not feel enough

At my sister's wedding we also kept a place setting empty to honor those loved ones who had passed but were most definitely there with us in our hearts.

I agree with Jacilynda about doing a private thank you. I would definitely include a nice letter with whatever gift you come up with.

In Memory Of All Those
Who Aren't With Us Today....
We thought of you with love today
but that is nothing new, We thought
about you yesterday and the days
before that too. We think of you in silence.
We often speak your name.
Now all we have are the memories
and your picture in a frame.
Your memory is our keepsake,
with which we'll never part.
God has you in his keeping,
we have you in our hearts.

and you could have her carry it down the isle.
I would give her the candle and you and FI write her a letter saying how much it means to you for her to be there. It's not so much what you are giving her, that probably won't mean as much to her as knowing how much you guys cared for her husband and appreciate her being there.
