She also had read that a sunflower was another flower recommended. I am sure there is symbolism behind the two flowers I am not sure what that is.
She made mention of it in the program so she didn't put a sign up. I like it better that way- seemed classy.

There is a thread around here somewhere, started a long time ago with a poem that someone was going to use to honor there father. I will see if I can find it, I have no idea what the title was.

His dad passed away, but none of our remaining parents can attend the wedding due to age and health. So, we've thought about having an empty chair for all 4 of them, with something on the chair to indicate their presence: like a small fishing pole and picture of his dad in one chair, a photo of his mom and a copy of the "Most Notable Women in Texas" book (his mom is written about in it), and I still have to think about what we're going to do for my parents.
Another thing we're going to do is play the last recording his mom ever made during the hand ceremony. And it will be really cool because it'll be the first time his siblings will have heard it restored! We're surprising them with it, and we'll burn copies of it for them to keep also.

Your ideas are beautiful! You have obviously put a lot of thought into this, and I am sure it will be very moving for all.
