Hey don't mean to bring anyone down but I'm looking for some ideas to remember lost love one without making my wedding party and guest uncomfortable

My son was suppose to be in my wedding next year but unfortunately I lost him June of last year to SIDS a month after he was born.

I'm so sorry to hear of your loss!! :(
If you have a picture of him I've seen people do memory lockets attached to their bouquet.

It's small so your guests and wedding party may not even notice but he will be there for you. I think you can get them on Etsy. Hope this helps!

I am pinning a piece of my fathers jewelry to my bouquet. He will still be with me going down the aisle to meet my husband!

You could pin a small locket to your bouquet as well!

So sorry to hear about your son :(


We had a lot of grandparents who had passed away that we wanted to honor. We made a photo table/display that had a photo of all of our grandparents and our parents on their wedding day (it was a mix of those who were still living and those who had passed away).  One frame had a sign in it that I made that said "We know that you would be here today if heaven wasn't so far away". It was a sweet way to honor them as well as show our family's generations without making anyone feel uncomfortable. 


I have also been to weddings where a chair was left empty in the first row at the aisle and it had a lit candle sitting in it. The minister/justice of the peace said in the beginning of the ceremony that the empty chair was the seat for those who had passed, and the light/candle showed that they were with us today, or something like that. 


Keep looking! There are lots of great ways that you can honor your loved ones  :wub:

I'm doing the empty chair in honour of my mother. I think it's the most subtle way to honour her without bringing everyone down.

    Thanks for the ideas. I am still not sure how to honor my mom. I like the empty chair idea

    I like when people display old wedding photos of lost loved ones, like by the guest book or something. That way you can remember them by seeing them during one of their happiest moments.

    My condolences for all of those you lost, especially your son MzLisa.


    I really like the wedding photo i and empty chair idea.  I was thinking about doing a day of the dead sugar skull candle by the guest book for all those that have passed.  We have several and want to honor them all.  We would need 9 frames for all, so might try and do some sort of collage.
