Bouquet Frame to Honor Deceased Parent/Family Member

Recommended Posts

Thanks for posting this. I wanted to incorporate my grandparent's wedding photo into my special day. This frame is a great way to keep them close to me.

I've been looking for ways to incorporate my mom and dad into my wedding. This is a great idea - thank you so much for sharing!

Thank you so much for this link. My mom just passed away August 30 & planning or even thinking of this wedding just absolutely tears me up. I am planning on wearing her wedding dress that day (as long as I can get it cleaned & altered) & having a picture of her on my bouquet is perfect.

Both sets of our grandparents have passed as well as his dad and my aunt (who was like mom #2). I have decided to incorporate a poem into our program to honor them. Seeing a photo, IMO, may make others super sad and start to cry. So I figured with a poem it applies to all of the deceased family members and people can choose to read it then or at a later time.

 

Although you are not here for us to see

 

Through us, your love will live on and continue to be

 

To honor you, stories will be shared with family and friends

 

So the memory of you will go on to no end

 

We know that you are watching and smiling from above

 

You are sharing with us our expression of love

 

Continue to help guide us as we go on our way

 

As we become husband and wife on this special day

I did this as well for my step-dad. I got mine at David's - it just hooked right on to the plastic holder part of my bouquet. I took it off & placed it on the flowers for the picture.

I also used a verse I found on this site for a memorium page in my welcome books.

    • 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
    • Minimalist wedding bands look so classy and timeless regardless of the venue.
    • It's hard to estimate. Some receptions don't need much decorating because it's already beautiful. Some receptions need lots of decorating. Some receptions also come with extra decorating equipment already.
