My fiance lost his mom a couple years ago. It's a tricky situation because I never met her, and he was extremely close to her. We've agreed that we don't want to have pictures or "In memory of" poems because we want the day to focus on us, our families coming together, and our new future together. However, we didn't want to completely ignore the situation. This was our compromise:
Since the wedding is in Hawaii, and my mother and his grandmother will be wearing leis instead of corsages, I'm going to have a lei draped over the chair where his mother would be sitting. Then his grandmother, father, and he will place a white rose on her chair (her favorite flower) before taking their places. I'm also going to make sure the the minister includes a prayer in remembrance of all of our lost ones before beginning the ceremony. I'm hoping this will be an appropriate tribute.

We have a section in our Ceremony Brochure dedicated to our grandparents that have passed away. Since it's all of them for both of us, we didn't want to do anything for each one other than write out how much of a blessing they were in our lives and how we love and miss them. Just as a way to honor them. I am sure both of our parents will be touched since they don't know that we are including the grandparents in the brochure.

I don't want to have a tearfest though. I am actually crying now that I am thinking about it. Any ideas? He had Trisomy 13 so I thought about adding the awareness pin in my bouquet or maybe one of the mini frames with his footprints.

I work with amazing people and they threw me a surpise bridal shower and gave me a memory photo frame for my bouquet with my mother's picture in it. Needless to say I was hysterical. My friend called my fiance for a picture and he dropped it off to her and gave it to an art teacher and he retouched the picture. I came out beautiful!!
