Hello lovely ladies,

 

I'm looking to get some advice and or ideas.  

 

Since my mother is no longer with us, I wanted to find a way to include her in this special day.  I have seen the idea where couples leave a chair empty and reserved for that special person.  I really like that idea.  Here's where it could be awkward though.  So my dad will be at the wedding with his new wife.  She's great and she's been very supportive for this wedding.  I don't know where to put the empty chair.  I don't want it to be awkward for her if she's sitting next to it.  the space is quite small where we are getting married so I don't know if that's the best option but it was one that I really liked.  I really don't want her to feel uncomfortable.  

 

Let me know what you ladies think! :)

Ohhhh, I think that a few people from  her side will be attending.  Maybe I could have them sit near it.  I've seen some brides put that chair front and centre.  But I don't know if it's too much of a downer.

I've seen people put a picture of their lost loved one on the empty chair. That way you would be able to see your mom's smiling face on your big day

I lost my mom 11 years ago. Hugs to you. I had considered putting her picture on the signing table but in the end got a bouquet charm and I had her picture in it (see attached). It's from etsy and a Canadian seller if you are interested.

What a beautiful picture!  I like that idea too.  If my dad wasn't remarried I wouldn't think twice about the chair idea.  I will definitely be mentioning her in my speech.  I'm really trying to be accommodating.

 

@calgarybride2015  what does the charm attach to?  is it a clasp or a pin through the ribbon?

I could probably make one! :)

My dad is also remarried and HE mentioned my mom in his speech :) everyone knows who your mom is and that they once were married and I think it all should be fine. I talk about my mom to my step mom. She knew her :)

 

It's a clasp. I had scissors and just cut some of the ribbon to attach it. I could have also just attached it at the top of the ribbon without fully using the clasp if that makes sense. I can take a better pic later and show you.

That would be great!  I'd love to see it in more detail so that I can make myself one this weekend : )

    • When it comes to your Wedding Clothes, it's pretty normal to be flooded by numerous choices that are available in the market like clothing style, pattern, fabric, and colors.  Absolutely, I liked this dress and I will never miss wearing this outfit for the wedding. Thank you for sharing this post.
    • Hi guys! Thank you for sharing the valuable information. Some students think, “How do I write my book review?” and are confused by this sort of task, and others are happy to do it and enjoy the writing process a lot. Such a difference in perception and attitudes is caused by the ambivalence of this task.
    • Hi All, I have just gotten in touch with a TA and we are in the process of getting quotes for our wedding in either DR or Mexico. Now she said something that I wasn't  aware of and I wonder how others handled this as I just can't believe that we are the only one in this situation. We feel we are asking our guests already a for a lot to come a long way to our wedding (our guests come from Canada and Germany) and there are a few that wouldn't want to miss it (like my partner's brother) but they just don't have a lot of money. Our budget doesn't allow us to chip in for flights and accommodation so we are basically asking everyone to save up money for our big event. Now we are planning the wedding at a resort that I know some of our guests can't (or don't want to) pay for. We were hoping to find a place where guests have the option to book themselves a cheaper hotel or an AirBnB nearby and only come to our wedding. Our TA told us that the resort might not allow that or only for a limited percentage of our guests. That is terrible news for us! I think that a good 50% of our guests will also stay at the resort for one, two or even three weeks but how can we 'force' other people to stay at the hotel of OUR choice?  I get that the resort would charge a fee for day guests and obviously we expect to pay for food and drinks but I didn't know that we would have to agree to a certain percentage of the guests staying at the resort. I don't feel we have control over that. How do others handle that?
