I lost my dad a little over 5 years ago. When my cousin got married 2 years ago, he read off names of friends and family that weren't there. When he read Dad's namw off the list, I walked outside and cried knowing my father wouldn't be there for the father-daughter dance we had planned. He was my best friend and we had it planned that he would be the one to walk me down the aisle and we'd dance to "Just Fishing," by Trace Adkins.
Now it's planned that his best friend (my "other" dad) will walk amd dance with me. He'll wear the bowlow tie Dad bought for his and mom's wedding. I'm wanting to stop and visit Dad's grave before the ceremony while all dressed up so he can see his little girl all grown up. We're looking at Mama and Daddy's wedding anniversary as our big day (9/12/2020). Mama even offered us hers and Dad's wedding bands. And because we both have grandparents that have passed away, we're taking their pictures and putting them on a table with a white candle.
These kinds of plans got me to wondering what you lovely brides have planned as a way to honor loved ones who have passed away. Are you doing pictures? Are there going to be songs that have a special meaning? Or are you not going to do anything at all? I wanna hear what y'all have to say.
