Please Help! Program wording for honoring those not with us.
FH's dad passed away two years ago, and we are actually going to be getting married on his birthday, so we wanted to figure out some way to acknowledge what day it is and / or acknowledge all the people that have passed away and therefore could not be with us on our wedding day. Any suggestions on what to say? Hayley C I know you're out there!

Although they could not be here to share in our wedding day, they are in our hearts.
Those who love and are loved know that life’s true riches lie in the moments spent with family and friends.

Are you using a flower in his honor? Daisy or Sweet Pea is the birth flower
A candle?

We would like to thank you, all of our family and friends, for your love and support on this day and always. We would not be where we are today without you. We truly thank you for making this trip to be with us today.

The use of "sweet pea" in today's celebration is in honor of the groom's father.
It is the birth flower of April and today is his birthday. On this most special milestone in our lives, we wish to lovingly remember all those close to our hearts who are no longer with us. We know they are here with us in spirit. The wonderful memories of the precious times shared with each of them will be cherished forever.

and then list their names and relationships to the bride and groom

If you're doing something to honor many people, maybe say something like,
"The roses (candle) at the altar (or whatever/wherever) are here to represent those who are with us in spirit"

we'll have flowers in 4 chairs - my 2 grandparents, 1 for FH's dad and 1 for FH's abuella. They will be sunflowers and peach roses :) Thanks for your help!
