I think there was maybe 6 fan blades I guess you'd call them, a couple inches wide, and the fan was like a program. One blade listed the people in the wedding, one blade thanked everyone for coming, I think one may have had a poem on it. I wish I saved mine, I'd send it to you, they were soooo pretty and my description probably is so not understandable.

You could have a table off to the side of the ceremony with a frame picture of your dad and then another frame next to it with that poem. You can also keep one chair empty and put a single rose on it.
Those are both some good ideas. But exactly, you want to be able to incorporate something that wont change the mood of the guests. Any of these ideas would work. Thanks

BUT, look at it this way, at your Ceremony they are going to cry anyway listening to you guys exchange your vows, so why not honor your Dad with a reading.. at that time?
