Few Sweet Details!
Hey guys it’s me again Daphne from TWVAB
As a wedding coordinator one of the most important things I found in planning a wedding is somehow incorporating a lost loved one into the picture. I also had this painful dilemma to deal with when my daughter got married. It was difficult for my daughter to deal with the passing of her grandmother but even more heartbreaking to know she wouldn’t be there to see her walk down the aisle. My daughter wanted to do something special to include her Nana so she cut some fabric in the shape of a heart from one of my mother’s camisoles and sewed it in the inside of her wedding dress near her heart. She mentioned having that small piece of fabric gave her a peace as the Bible says that surpasses all understanding. In addition to placing that material in her dress I felt compelled to slip my mother’s wedding band on her finger before walking down the aisle.
Deciding how to honor a loved one can be extremely difficult because you want to make sure you show how much you valued that individual. Whether you choose to say a pray before you walk down the aisle, acknowledge their absence or incorporate them in your special day do what feels right to you.
Here are a couple of ideas
- Wear something that reminds you of that person.
- Reef on their seat
- Moment of silence
- Memorial Tags
- Wrap fabric around bouquet
- Carry their bible
- Charitable donation
