Most couples today want their special day to be personalized and unique. There are terrific ideas online but what really resonates with everyone is your very own ideas. Whether they are tweaks from ones you have seen before, or an entirely “new” idea, with today’s flexibility in weddings you can almost do exactly what you have in mind. The only recommendation here is that it always be within the boundaries of consideration and kindness to everyone.
Here’s a possibility:
If you would like to honor deceased family or friends at your ceremony or reception, place photographs and other items on a table that were important to those people. Perhaps a piece of memorabilia from their lifetime….favorite hobbies or interests. A flower left on an empty chair can also be used. If the passing is a recent one you may want to consider those who will be attending and not make it a sad part of the ceremony. This type of recognition should be somewhat subtle but yet meaningful. Your wedding ceremony is a very happy occasion but knowing those important people in your life will be represented is a very considerate act.
