In memory of Dad Poem

Recommended Posts

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.

    • Hello all!! I'm planning to get married next week. I'm working in an MNC and I'm gonna marry my colleague who is in my company. It's been ten months since we have started our relationship. He used to support in all my difficulties and used to help me in my work. Always he used to tell me about my smile. He says that I have a very good smile and he loves it. Recently I lost my front tooth after an accident and it resulted in a bad look for me. He told me that I lost my beautiful smile. I was totally disappointed and thought of finding a solution. I heard about dental dentures and took an appointment at a clinic in Scarborough. Will dentures affect my speech? What was your experience of getting dentures? 
    • Go for the third one. It is gorgeous and you will look stunning in that. I'm sure you will be noticed by other people. Go for it.
    • I would suggest the long one. You will look stunning in that. It is simple and elegant.
    • Both the gown are awesome and I'm sure you will look gorgeous in both. But I would suggest the first one. Go for it and Congratulations for your marriage.
    • Hello everyone,  I am still engaged, still not planning the big day, because we haven't chosen a date + we have some family stiff to do so I hope that this forum will help me a lot before the real craziness during the wedding planning period. Happy to be here
