Memory table- who’s included?!

Ally, on September 3, 2021 at 6:24 PM Posted in Family and Relationships 0 8
Hi everyone! Upon everything else, I’ve been stressing on pictures and the details for my memory table. In less than a year, I lost 3 family members- a cousin who was like a big brother to me, my mom and my grandma. My fiancé and I are Catholic and getting married at the church. At the end of our ceremony, we are doing a prayer for the family members who have passed, especially the recent ones. it odd to include a cousin with my mom and grandma on a memory table? What have you done , or plan to do on your wedding day? Thanks in advance!

    You can include anyone you like, but I would check with other family members (especially your cousin's parents and siblings) who are also grieving to make sure they won't be devastated by seeing a photo of their loved one at your wedding. Everyone grieves differently and some can handle seeing photos, but others cannot.

    We are including everyone at one table. Grandparents, friends, and an aunt. So I don't think it's odd to have people mixed together.

    I lost my mom 21 years ago and we aren't doing a memorial table. I'm just getting my mom's favorite flower out into my bouquet.

    I lost my brother 5 years ago and I am doing just a sign with candle at my wedding, but I won’t put a picture of my brother since it’s still very hard the way he died to all of us. Especially to my mom. Plus it’s my big day and I would not like to have people grieving all over again… it’s suppose to be a happy day!

    We are having a memorial table. I lost my best friend and also my grandmother last year and my little sister this year. My FH lost his best friend a couple years back and his grandparents in the last few years.

    I say if it feels right to honor someone on your day, do it. It doesn’t take away from the honor of others. Grief not divisible and there’s no reason to make yourself hurt more by trying to decide who to include. Sorry for your losses

    My fiancé and I are including both of his grandfathers& my uncle who passed away early last year. whoever you feel will be there in spirit & whoever you wish could be there should be included. It is your day and how you choose to honor and remember deceased loved ones is 100% your decision!
