Oh I am so sorry. My heart breaks for you - please let us know if there is anything we can do to help you get through this. I agree with Speckles - whatever you want to do is appropriate. Take care of yourself.

I am so sorry for your loss.
I like the photo of her on a chair, and perhaps a candle (LED or flame) at the reception in her honor. You can also do a photo charm of her on your bouquet. Do you have something of hers you can add to your dress (a heart cut out of the fabric of her favorite dress and sewn into yours, a bit of lace from her dress you could sew into the lining of yours, or something like that)?
I agree with the others. Take time to mourn and heal before you dive back into planning.

I am so sorry to hear about your mom. xoxox Don't let anyone pressure you into anything, take as much time as you need. As for honoring your mom you could have a small table at the ceramony site with a framed picture of you and her. After the ceramony have the table and picture moved inside and have a candle lit to represent your moms presence. Because she WILL be there in spirit. You could also incoorperate something of your mothers into your wedding attire. If you need anything don't hesitate to contact me. I would always be willing to listen or give advice. xoxoxoxox and I'm sure alot of girls on this site would do the same

I'm so sorry for your loss, it must be so tough to have such a happy event associated with such a tragic one. You have a few options depending on what you feel comfortable with. You could always do your memorial at sunrise/sunset and then choose however you preferred to honor your mom at the ceremony. I know a family member who lost their mother added a locket to her bouquet so that her mother would be with her on her wedding day. I've also heard of people dedicating part of a slideshow at the reception to those who couldn't be there. Ultimately its your day, so honour your mother however you want to, and don't worry too much about what others will think!

I'm so very sorry for your loss, and sorry that your mom won't be there, in person, on your wedding day. I cannot imagine how you dealt with this the day before your planned DW! My heart goes out to you. My husband and I (second marriage for both of us) were married 3 years ago. His Mom had passed away a few years before. We honored her by having the small posy on her chair and mention "in memory of" in our wedding program. But the best thing we did was to remove a flower (each of us) from the flowers on the wedding/altar arch and walk to the water's edge, say a prayer for her, and threw the flower in the Bay. It was meaningful to us and to our guests. My niece sang "When You Say Nothing at All" by Alison Kraus as we did that. It was beautiful.

We're sorry for your loss kymish. There is no easy way to adjust to losing a person so cherished.
Debbi803 really had some lovely ideas... taking flowers to the water's edge, saying a prayer and tossing the flowers out to sea with that prayer.
Another idea could be to have a section of photos... both of your mom and you and your loved ones with your mom. Below we are posting an example from one wedding we photographed. The bride and groom hung photos of themselves printed in black & white on wire with clothes pins at their reception. This could work well as a way to honor your mom but also in a way that brings smiles and laughter and really highlights the good moments...
