Best Man Passes Away

Recommended Posts

Sadly, the best man unexpectantly passed away last week. Our wedding is next month and I want to find a way to honor him and don't know what to do. I told DH that we could leave the spot where he would have stood empty and sprinkle it with rose petals. DH suggested putting a poem or something on the program. I'm not sure what we should do. Any ideas?

I'm really sorry to hear about your loss. I think it's very kind of you to want to honor him at your wedding. I've heard of people leaving an empty chair to symbolize a loved one not present. I also like your idea of the rose petals and your DH's idea about a poem or some recognition in the program. Whatever you choose to do I'm sure everyone will be thinking of him and know he is loved and missed....good luck.

Oh I am so sorry to hear that. I am actually tearing up reading this. I think either of those ideas are good. I hope that your FI is okay.

First of all let me say how sad I am by that news for you and more so for his family. My prayers are with them. I think that both of your ideas are very good ideas. Maybe you can have someone read the poem as part of the ceremony stating that it is dedicated to him. I think that would be nice.

 

I hope it all works out. So sorry for the loss.

That's sad, hope everyone is dealing with it ok, especially your FI. I think both ideas that you have would be a great way to honor him at your wedding.

I'm really sorry to hear about your loss, especially so close to your big day. I think both ideas are great with the empty chair and then some type of poem or reading to acknowledge him as well.

I am so sorry to hear about your loss! I hope your FI is ok. I think both ways sound like a beautiful way to honour him!

Two years ago my FI's sister got married and their grandfather had passed away a week before her wedding. She put a picture of her grandfather, with a single rose and a candle on a chair for him and had a poem read aswell in his honour.

This is devastating, so sorry! I like the idea of leaving a spot for him and incorporating some sort of reading or song or moment of silence for him. It will be sad but I would want to do something to honor him. Hang in there :)

    • It’s been years... and I’m now searching for the same in Montego Bay or Negril. Did anyone ever have any luck finding? 
    • Hello, I'm new to this site. I got engaged already and get married by next year. I have some doubts regarding our dating destination. Hope you will help me. Thank You!
    • Hello everyone,
      Well, this upcoming valentine's day is special for me because I got engaged and planning to spend the day with my fiance. I'm planning to give her an ethical jumpsuit.

      Other than that I have been searching the internet for some nice discounted coupons and searched among my friends and found different sites. Now, we are looking forward to that wonderful day. We searched a lot and found out, Escape The City. Orangeville is a great place for a day trip or weekend gateway from Toronto.
      Theatre Orangeville is offering a weekend package that includes 2 tickets to a Live performance at the theatre, Premium Overnight Accommodations at Best Western Plus Orangeville Inn and Suites and $75 Downtown Wine and Dine Voucher which is valid at select Downtown restaurants, and Free Entry to the scenic Trails & Bridges of Island Lake.

      We are so excited and eagerly waiting for that day.
      If anyone has got any other suggestions for the venue, kindly share your thoughts/ideas.
      Thank You!
       
    • Please tell me, the best wedding venue in Saskatoon, SK.
    • Hey everyone! Like the others here, I'm interested in wedding reception, venue and all related steps & stuff. Starting with my first and the most important note is that we're international couple and we need to think of bilingual wedding. So the first thing we need to think of is whether it will be interpretation or 2 different venue coordinators, sermons and stuff? What is your experience, what could be the best and affordable solution? From googling the issue I've found this Interactio app team ( describing possible solution here  http://blog.interactio.io/case-study-weddings )Basically they offer to hold the venue in the main language, additionally providing simultaneous interpretation online to other quest's mobile phones. Looks like really easy and creative idea. What about the others? How did you solve this kind of obstacle? Any additional advises would be very welcomed here
