    I've asked my brother to walk me down the aisle and I think I am going to put the photo charms on my bouquet. I think I will have a vase at the front and have each mom place a flower in it at the beginning to symbolize both fathers. Then we will have something written in our programs too.

      My friend had the pics of her parents thermally imprinted on the ring bearer's pillow. Looked very nice and she said it was if they held the rings and gave their blessings.
      Good luck with your search:)

          does anyone know of any good flower shops in Playa Del Carmen?  I'd like to have a single flower for each father but don't want to go through the hotel to order just two flowers.

            I am doing two photo charms on my bouquet and my fiance's boutonni¨re. His father just died about 2 months ago but he was never close to him. Instead, we are including my father's picture who died in Feb 2009 who died from a car accident. The lady went to diabetic shock and hit him while he was at work. He wasn't in a car so he had no protection at all. My dad was the nicest guy and had such a tragic ending to his life. I was so mad and probably still am he can't be there to walk me down the aisle.

             

            The second will be for our son Noah who I delivered on 7/12/2010 who was a stillborn at 31 weeks. We took some pictures and hope to have the professional ones tomorrow. I was at a loss at how to include both of them in my ceremony. I may have not known Noah outside the womb but he was very loved and wanted and it makes it hard to plan the wedding knowing he isn't here like in our original plans to wed in 2012 instead of next April.

             

            I am going to have either my uncle or godfather walk me down the aisle. I would like to incorporate something else in the actual ceremony but I do not what yet.

              I love all the ideas. One of our reasons for a DW was because I knew I wouldn't be ok with 200+ people watching me get married when 3 of the most important people won't be there with us. No need for an anxiety attack on our wedding day!!!

                My FI's father passed away in May and I want to include him as well as a father figure of mine, my track coach and mentor for the last 16 years of my life, who passed away a month ago.  They both passed away of cancer.  My FI's father had a type called carcinoid and my coach had prostate cancer.  It's so sad that both of their lives were ended by such a ravaging disease.  Anyway, I saw on here where someone had their FI a pair of photo cuff links with a picture of his father on them.  So, I think I will borrow that idea along with putting a picture of my coach on my bouquet.  I think I would also like to leave an open seat for them next to their wives with a framed picture of them.  I also like the idea of having their picture on the RB pillow but I don't think we'll have one.

                Someone had found a small charm (where a photo could be inserted) to tie onto your bouquet. She had found them on ebay.

                  How is everyone wording their programs if a parent has passed?  I wanted to include our fathers names under parents of the bride/parents of the groom. I can't decide if is should put (the late) Firstname Lastname  or Firstname Lastname (the late)  or ????  Any advice?

                    I have not yet decided if we are going to have a program for the ceremony.  I do know that I will have a memorial candle set up on the altar/table alongside a framed photograph of my dad.  Once my mom walks me down the aisle, I will go light the candle in memory of my dad...it'll be my "moment" with him.

                     

                    My mom is also giving me something of my dad's from their wedding (they had been married 42 years when my dad passed) as my "something old".
