What about having your FI wear one of his ties?
Or saving his "chair" in the front row and placing a tropical corsage on it during the ceremony when you honor him/them?

my husband's father passed away a year ago on the 4th of july. we incorporated a line or two about honoring those who could not be with us on our day. simple, like his dad was.
i just wanted to say that i'd be careful about planning on having candles to represent your fathers. i'm not sure where your wedding will be taking place, but beaches tend to be windy. so if you're having an outdoor ceremony, i'd check with your wedding coordinator to see if that's advisable at your site.
good luck, and i'm sure both of your fathers would be honored to know that you're thinking about them and incorporating something into your day for them.
p.s. my dad is still around, but wasn't able to make the trip for our wedding. ours was a small ceremony, but i walked myself down the aisle. it wasn't weird at all. but i wonder if there is a thread out there somewhere for this subject.

We plan on having one of our bridesmaids/ or groomsmen propose a toast during the reception. It will be a toast to celebrate and pay tribute to the wonderful family/people who are no longer with us, but are smiling down on us as we start our new journey.
I also plan of wearing a small piece of jewerly my father gave me when I was young, as a tribute to him. And my bouquet will have the same colors my mother's bouquet had at their wedding, as a tribute to her.
It is very difficult to not have such important family members close by, and it is hard to find a suitable way to pay tribute. Best wishes, and keep the ideas coming. I would love to get some other ideas.

I too lost my father 2 years ago. I'm hoping my mom will walk me down the aisle if not I will go alone. Love the idea of placing a corsage on a chair for the ceremony. Since my dad passed away the last 2 Christmas's we have always lit a candle during dinner for him and I plan on buying a special candle to light during the dinner/reception. Good luck girls, it sure is hard but I know my dad will be there and so will yours!!!
