Planning a wedding without my Mama, was one of the most difficult things I've ever done. I did my best to add her to my day. It brought me great comfort to know she would be watching from Heaven.cfb_1428741.jpg

I included her name on our Invitations, I made my portrait bouquet out of red and purple like we always dreamed of, I made a heart and added it to the altar to represent my undying love for her, I also dedicated her favorite song to her, at the Reception. "Tears in Heaven " by Eric Clapton.

I think we can all agree, that family is always near and dear to our hearts, no matter the distance between us, and weddings are a time of celebrating the love that we share with our future spouses, and the love for those who made us who we are.
Show me/ tell me how you will include those dearly departed family members that can't be there in person (but, will be in spirit) on your day.Congratulations to all and happy planning. ❤

    Awww that's great! I totally believe he will be walking with you down the aisle! I love that you will honor him, with your bouquet! That's so special and I believe that he's honored and knows all about your plans! ❤
    Congratulations! Please show pictures when you decide what you will use. I'd love to see your vision come to life. 🥰
    A song dedicated to each loved one is a great idea as well!

    John Denver - "Sunshine on My Shoulders" - he always called me Sunshine - and honestly, even all this time later, listening to it makes me cry. We have several photos of my starting to ugly cry while I was dancing with my brother - he was able to make me smile again though

    It was super hard planning my wedding without my mom. So many times over the years we talked about the things I wanted, and what fun it would be to plan together. The problem was that I didn't come across Mr. Right until after she had passed.

    Having said that, I did get lucky, and hit the FMIL jackpot! This woman is so amazing! She is a lot like my own mom, and has been there for me, every step of the way! I'm so lucky to have her! She has let me go my own way, choose whatever I want, never interfered or tried to get me to do things her way. The only advice she offers is when I ask for it.

    I'll have a bouquet charm for my beloved Mom. My dad just passed away 2 months ago, so I'm not sure what I'll do for him yet. Maybe a charm, maybe something else. I like the idea of a charm that can hold ashes. I'm going to look into that for my dad.

    They will both be honored at the Memorial table, along with FHs dad, who passed away about 15 years ago.

    Hey Lady!
    So happy to hear from you. I love the bouquet charm idea, I still have some of Mama's ashes, but was so busy with flowers, I didn't even think to look into them.

    So happy that your FMIL, is like a second Mother to you! I felt my Mama was guiding me from Heaven, but it definitely helps to have someone in your corner here.
    I'm so sorry to here about your Dad. My heart breaks for you! Both of your parents will be with you that day(and everyday) so looking forward to you getting your big day! You deserve it!Hugs to you! If you need me, don't hesitate to message me. ❤

    Oh! I love John Denver! I had Annie's song in my prelude. His music gives me chills. I was ugly crying too! I totally understand! So glad, your brother stood in for your Father. Although, I believe he danced every step with both of you. ❤
    Thank you for sharing, what a special song for a fantastic nickname!

    We don't plan to. We have both been fortunate not to lose anyone super close to us.
