    I cry everytime I read those. We are using two of the poems and setting up a memorial table for my father, and maternal grandmother. I had the idea of using a digital picture frame for a sort of slide show with pics of both of them. I'll likely have to stay away from it the whole night. I'll lose it and ruin the festivities, I know.

        I chose having a photo attached to my bouquet as a more discreet way of having my grandmother with me at my wedding. My Dad would have been too emotional had I done anything else (also, at the time I was looking into this, my grandpa was planning on coming and he has a new wife).

        Here's a pic of my bouquet. I also had my grandmother's ring and my great grandmother's brooch attached as my something old & borrowed.

            Thank you so much for posting a thread like this one. I recently lost my mother and was wondering if people ever did something for the loved ones in their lives that they have lost. All of the ideas are beautiful.

              I love the flowers. I am going to wear a piece of my grandma's clothing attached under my dress on my wedding day. She passed this past summer. I can never forget her telling me that she was going to dance on my wedding day...

                  I also lost my mother recently and she moonlighted as my best friend... I was thinking of asking my step father to dance with me to honor her. I was going to choose the song that her and I danced to at her wedding... (I hope you dance) I am just really concened that I am going to lose it, and not be able to real myself in... I also don't want to be a downer at the wedding she would not want that. So I am not sure, I like some of the ideas in here though.

                    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!

                      I am sorry to hear about the passing of your loved ones. My brother passed away and it will be very hard not have have him at my wedding. I was thinking of having a photo frame with his picture attached to my bouquet. I thought of having my mom, dad and other brothers have one as well.
