        Okay, crying now.

        I have to figure out a way to honour my brother in law without making my sister ball. I love these ideas, but I think they might be too much for her to handle. I will figure it out though. keep the ideas coming.

          Thanks Shelley! Now that I've cried at work, I think I'm going to go with the "We thought of you with love today..." poem to honor my Mom and Dad. This has been so hard planning a wedding without my Mom (My Dad probably wouldn't have been much help with the details!) I will be thinking of you on your day :)

            I love this one, Shelley:

            “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)


            With a Memory Table, but also the picture charms for your bouquet.

              Those are very nice poems. I also lost my Mom recently and I'm trying to incorporate something in the wedding but I'm not sure what. It's just so fresh and I want to be able to make it through the ceremony without a breakdown. Thanks for the idea's.

                THANK YOU SO MUCH FOR THIS POST! My mom passed away when I was really young, and I have been trying to think of ways to remember her in a way that included her in the ceremony, but didn't make the entire ceremony about that. I love the locket idea in the photo too. Since my mother passed away from breast cancer, I was also thinking of donating money to the American Cancer Society and then making a note of it somewhere that money was donated in the guests name. This works well too since my FMIL is a breast cancer survivor. These are all lovely ideas, and again, thanks for this post.

                  Robin-
                  I would love something like that done - how does it work?

                    I think I may put this on my wedding program or on the guest book table:

                    Although we cannot see you
                    We know that you are here
                    Smiling down, watching over us
                    As we say "I do"
                    Forever in our hearts
                    Forever in our lives
                    And so we say our vows
                    In loving memory of you
