TammyM, You find these things so quick!! Jackie, the first ones Tammy posted are the ones I was talking about, except the ones I saw had 1 or 2 more blades, so they were a little fuller, but they were a very nice touch to their wedding.

By the way - I ordered a sample from WhiteAisle for their white paper fan 9they're $1 each) but to be honest it's pretly crappy - not recommended at all! We had a pist about fans before... let me try and find it...

 

Okay, here the link (the first fan listed int he one I dont' think looks so hot in person - very cheap and you can sort of see ripples int eh paper from the glue):

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?
I've lost my Mom (birth) as well and this by far has been the most touching poem that I have read. I would shy away from printing it in the program since it would definately evoke some emotions. I was going to light a candle in my mothers memony and now that I've read this poem I would just include that next to it or on it.(may I borrow?)

How about a memorial chair?
Or embroidered/iron-on on a hankie?
Or place the poem on a ribbon wand?

in the beddining of our ceremony we said something about the death of my aunt and steve's bf...people cried BUT it was ok because people also laughed during our vows...its ok for people to laugh and cry...emotion is good.

Thanks kashmira, maybe it would be best if I made my own, that way I could have control of how nice they looked. I certainly wouldnt want to order them and have them not look nice.

Yes, borrow away, It is such a pretty poem, its sad but its kind of really sweet cute and simple at the same time which is what I liked. I will have to really think of wear I wanted it to be. You bring up a good point, it might be to much to put it directly in the program. Maybe on the program in very light print as a background to the program. Then its not so much part of the program but part of the fan.

I just printed it out and framed it. It will be on a table off to the side of the ceremony along with a framed pic of my dad and I and a little candle. Then is the program, at the bottom, I wrote, the candle on the table is in loving memory of the bride's father, Robert J. Mastrosimone.

Thanks so much for the idea!!

Oh, another thing I thought about doing is, having something typed up and framed that says, in lieu of favors, the bride and groom will donate to The Lymphomia Society (my dad died of lymphomia)

Its a nice simple way to honor him but I decided not to do it cause I already have favors.

When my oldest nephew, John, got married (we're the same age!), he received my father's (his grandfather's) wedding ring. My sister wrote a poem herself and read it to him/us remembering our father/grandfather who could not be with us and how his wedding ring was being passed down to his oldest grandchild. EVERYONE was bawling, but it was beautiful, and especially because my nephew did not know about it. Although it was sad at that moment, the ceremony went forward and everyone was overjoyed for their union and knowing that my father was still a part of that day.

    • It’s been years... and I’m now searching for the same in Montego Bay or Negril. Did anyone ever have any luck finding? 
    • Hello, I'm new to this site. I got engaged already and get married by next year. I have some doubts regarding our dating destination. Hope you will help me. Thank You!
    • Hello everyone,
      Well, this upcoming valentine's day is special for me because I got engaged and planning to spend the day with my fiance. I'm planning to give her an ethical jumpsuit.

      Other than that I have been searching the internet for some nice discounted coupons and searched among my friends and found different sites. Now, we are looking forward to that wonderful day. We searched a lot and found out, Escape The City. Orangeville is a great place for a day trip or weekend gateway from Toronto.
      Theatre Orangeville is offering a weekend package that includes 2 tickets to a Live performance at the theatre, Premium Overnight Accommodations at Best Western Plus Orangeville Inn and Suites and $75 Downtown Wine and Dine Voucher which is valid at select Downtown restaurants, and Free Entry to the scenic Trails & Bridges of Island Lake.

      We are so excited and eagerly waiting for that day.
      If anyone has got any other suggestions for the venue, kindly share your thoughts/ideas.
      Thank You!
       
    • Please tell me, the best wedding venue in Saskatoon, SK.
    • Hey everyone! Like the others here, I'm interested in wedding reception, venue and all related steps & stuff. Starting with my first and the most important note is that we're international couple and we need to think of bilingual wedding. So the first thing we need to think of is whether it will be interpretation or 2 different venue coordinators, sermons and stuff? What is your experience, what could be the best and affordable solution? From googling the issue I've found this Interactio app team ( describing possible solution here  http://blog.interactio.io/case-study-weddings )Basically they offer to hold the venue in the main language, additionally providing simultaneous interpretation online to other quest's mobile phones. Looks like really easy and creative idea. What about the others? How did you solve this kind of obstacle? Any additional advises would be very welcomed here
