    I found this little poem on another forum and thought it was just perfect. My father passed away this past March and I knew I wanted to do something small in the wedding ceremony to recognize him but at the same time not bring the whole mood down. So far my two little sisters are supposed to be giving me away, and this would mean so much to them. What do you think?

    Dear Lord please clear a spot for him:
    he should have the perfect view.
    His little girl's a Bride today,
    and I am counting on you.
    Let me feel his presence;
    as I journey down the isle.
    But let me notice his abscence;
    if only for a while.
    Let me stop to think of him;
    As I am given away.
    And know that if he could;
    he would be here with me today.
    Dear Lord please clear a spot for him;
    he should have the perfect view.
    And if he should get sad today;
    Dear Lord I count on you.


    The only question would be where and how do I use it. I dont want to read it or have it read. Maybe put on a scroll that could be passed out on the way to be seated for the ceremony, any ideas?

        Good idea, I'm not sure if we are having programs. I'm not sure if they would be good for such a short ceremony. No one is speeches etc... Maybe instead of calling them programs I could call them something else and fill them with special little stuff. I went to a wedding once where on the back of the program there were little cute and funny facts about the bride and groom. HMMM.

          Oohh - that is cute. I've also seen some people use just a plain "program" (flat sheet or paper, basically) and attach it to a fan. I don't know if you're using fans - but you could just put this poem on there.

          Or you could put this poem on some nice paper, put it in a frame, and place it by the cake or guestbook if you're having them. Or maybe just on the head table.

            I LOVE the fan idea. What better little trinket to hand out in the middle of the swealterin heat of May in Mexico. GOOD GOOD GOOD, now I just need to research fans.

                  Jackie that is very pretty. Cain's grandma passed away a couple of years ago of cancer and his aunt is getting married a month before us, she plans on doing something at her wedding to honor her mother. She plans on setting a seat out for her, she is going to take one rose out of her bouquet and place it on her chair, they are doing a moment of silence to honor her.

                    Thats such a nice idea Tammy, We are also going to spread some of his ashes in the ocean and possibly over the gazebo area (not at ceremony) . He loved the water and would beg us all the time to go out on the boat with him. We obviously wouldnt do all this at the wedding ceremony but maybe on another day, In a happy way nothing sad.

                    Jackie that is so sweet. That poem gave me chills and made me teary. Very good choice.
