Pre Wedding Journals | Including loved ones passed in your wedding day
The old case of the leaky-eye is set to make an appearance at most wedding days, especially as loved ones passed are remembered.
Today I wanted to give you some ideas that go past a lit candle and allow you to fully embrace those you care so deeply about that couldn’t make it to your day.
Set a chair aside at the ceremony. You could also do this at the reception too so that the person or people you’re missing are always there.
Accompany an empty chair with a framed photo or memento of a loved one, something that allows people to remember them living their happiest life.
You could release a butterfly or a dove.
Enjoy a favourite drink and/or a toast in their honour.
Place charms with their photo, or special mementoes of theirs in your bouquet.
Dance to their wedding song, or incorporate a favourite song of theirs into your day.
Speak the vows they made to their partner if they fully resonate with you.
Place a favourite flower of theirs into your wedding florals.
If they were a funny lad or lass you could incorporate some of their funny remarks into your signage.
Wear a piece of their jewellery, or place a snapshot of their memory, some of their ashes, or a piece of their handwriting inside a Love in a Jewel pendant.
Did they have a favourite dessert or dish that you adored? Bring it to your wedding menu!
Instead of a registry, or favours, make a donation to a charity they had ties to.
