A Simple Way to Remember Those Who Can't Be There on Your Wedding DayDIY Etiquette Families
After scouring through websites and photos for different ways to remember our loved ones, we decided to create a small reception table of framed photos of each person that was lit by candlelight and a sweet poem. I cannot tell you how many of our guests expressed how much they loved the idea.
It was an easy, simple but beautiful tribute to our loved ones who we kept close to our hearts on our Wedding Day.
Here's the poem we used:
Always With Us
Today we pause to reflect upon
Those who have shaped our character,
Molded our spirits and touched our hearts.
May the lighting of these candles be a
Reminder of the memories we have shared,
A representation of the everlasting
Impact you have had upon our lives.
Although we can’t see you
We know that you are here
Smiling down and watching
As we say “I Do”
Forever in our hearts
Forever in our lives
Forever in our minds
This is in loving memory of you…
