All of these stories are so touching. Thank you for sharing.
I lost my mom at 23 years as well. It was really sudden, my first major loss, first major heart break. I really had to do a lot of work to work through the grief. I eventually became a grief counsellor to honour her memory and help others.
I honour her memory every day, so I don't want to make it like a mini memorial for her...but like @calgarybride2015 said, everyone at the wedding either knew her or knew of her.
One idea I thought of is to do a toast for her during my speech in her honour.
Thanks for all the ideas ladies. hugs! @wafflesmom @acw271011
