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.

    • Hi all! I know this is an old thread... but just in case there are other destination wedding brides out there with the same question, I thought I would answer! My guy and I live in Texas and just got our marriage license (yay!). We are getting married in Playa del Carmen, Mexico. The Dallas County clerk informed us that we can get our marriage license in Texas, bring it and a Texas-registered officiant to Mexico, have the ceremony in Mexico, then bring the marriage license back to Texas to file and it will be LEGAL in the US.  In  other words, we can legally get married in Mexico using our Texas marriage license and officiant (who is a family friend), then file the paperwork when we get home. Where it says 'county in which ceremony was performed' on the license, we just put in Playa del Carmen, Mexico and bam! Married :) I do not know if this is true for other states, but it is CONFIRMED for Texas! I suggest asking the clerk when you register for your marriage license. I am overjoyed that we can have a US-legal marriage in Mexico so our wedding date on our license will be the actual day! NO blood tests, or getting married before or after the trip required!  
    • Every Bride spends a lot of time researching and worrying about her perfect wedding dress. While many Indian brides choose the traditional red colour for their bridal gown, a few of them find some different colours to wear on their special day. Here is a description of how to choose an Indian wedding dress that suits your skin tone. 1) Fair complexion: You can choose any shade of blue or bright shades of pink and red. In the shades of blue- select scuba blue or royal blue. Among other colours this season, you can pick up your dress in tangerine.   2) Wheatish complexion Just select those colours which bring out the warmth in your complexion. Some of the best options for you are tangy orange, saffron yellow, vibrant shades of red, mint green and hot pink.   3) Dusky complexion: If you have an olive skin tone, then you can pull off any rich and dark colour quite well. So, the colours like classic blue, marsala, burnt orange and brick red are just perfect for you. Also the metallic silver, gold and bronze will even flatter your face pretty well
    • I will be using the hPage Website Builder to create a free website for our wedding. I am planning to post wedding updates, wedding photos, wedding reminders, and wedding articles regarding our upcoming marriage there. For RSVP, I am using Facebook events since almost all we invited have facebook and it would be easier to get their "yes" or "no" confirmation there. In case anyone is interested as well here's their site: hPage Website Builder - https://www.hpage.com
    • Minimalist wedding bands look so classy and timeless regardless of the venue.
    • It's hard to estimate. Some receptions don't need much decorating because it's already beautiful. Some receptions need lots of decorating. Some receptions also come with extra decorating equipment already.
