In Memory Of...

Recommended Posts

Alot of girls on here are going to be missing someone very important to them on their wedding day. For me, it's my Mom.... So, I have been searching for ways to include my lost loved ones in my wedding day, and I thought I would post a couple ideas....

 

 

 

 

Possible program wording:

 

Perhaps they are not stars but rather openings in heaven

 

Where the love of our lost ones pours through

 

And shines down upon us to let us know they are happy.

 

Celebrating with us in spirit

 

 

 

A memory table with their photos and then

 

“Those we love don't go away,

They walk beside us every day.

Unseen, unheard, but always near,

Still loved, still missed and very dear.”

 

In loving memory of those who are no longer with us…

 

(and then listing their names)

 

 

or

 

“We thought of you with love today, but that is nothing new.

We thought about you yesterday and days before that, too.

We think of you in silence, we often speak your name.

All we have are memories and your picture in a frame.

Your memory is our keepsake, with which we’ll never part.

God has you in His keeping, we have you in our hearts.”

In Loving Memory

 

Perhaps they are not the stars

But rather openings in heaven

Where the love of our lost ones

Pours through

And shines down upon us

To let us know they are happy

 

Thank you for loving and sharing

For giving and caring.

God bless you and keep you,

Until we meet again.

 

 

 

 

 

I'll Miss You at the Wedding

I'll miss you at the wedding,

with all the family near.

Friends and neighbors will be there too,

all whom I hold so dear.

 

When I turn to look at them,

I'll see your empty space.

But because I know you're watching

it's a very honored place.

 

And I know that you'll be happy too

because you see that we're in love.

In my heart, I know you are

You're watching from above.

 

 

 

 

If Tears Could Build A Stairway

If tears could build a stairway

and memories were a lane

We would walk right up to heaven

And bring you back again.

No farewell words were spoken

No time to say goodbye

You were gone before we knew it

And only God knows why

Our hearts still ache in sadness

and secret tears still flow

What it meant to lose you

No one will ever know

But now we know you want us

To mourn for you no more

To remember all the happy times

Life still has much in store

Since you'll never be forgotten

We pledge to you today

A cherished place within our heart

Is where you'll always stay

 

 

 

 

Whispers from heaven

 

When I left this world without you

I know it made you blue.

Your tears fell so freely,

I watched; I know this is true.

 

While you were weeping,

Days after I passed away-

While all was silent within me,

I saw you kneel and pray.

 

From the wonderful place called heaven

Where all my pain is gone,

I send a gentle breeze to whisper,

"My loved ones, please go on."

 

The peace that I have found here

Goes far beyond compare

No rain, no clouds, no suffering-

Just LOVE from everywhere.

 

You need not be troubled

Just stay close to GOD in prayer

Someday we'll be reunited

My love, HIS love surrounds you always,

EVERYWHERE!

Thanks so much for sharing. Great idea for a thread.

I can only imagine the pain of losing a parent. Sorry for your loss.

I shot this wedding last year. The brides mother had passed away maybe a year before the wedding. She had me incorporate an image of her mother into one of her bridal portaits. They set this table up with a candle vase that had a transparency photo on the glass with her mom's photo & photos of loved ones that were no longer with them in body.

    • Good afternoon, I wanted to inquire if anyone has or knows someone who got married at this resort. How was it? How are the coordinators? Packages that were chosen. Any help would be greatly appreciated.   Thanks.
    • 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
