A Place of Honor

It is not uncommon for a blushing bride to be overcome with emotion as her wedding day approaches. When a loved one has been lost, either recently or in the past, memories are bound to surface immediately after a proposal and while preparing for “I do.”

While you probably want any sense of grief <link to feature> as far away from your ceremony as possible, there is a way to remember a lost family member that respects their place in your life while keeping the overall tone of the ceremony a happy one. You can play a special song, light a candle or print a tribute in the wedding program.

Whatever you choose, recognizing that person on such a big day will help you feel their presence and honor their memory. [Aisledash.com]
