Hi Elizabeth, I am doing the same thing for close family who have passed. My plan is to frame an 8 by 10 photo of each of them and set it on a chair in the front row. I'm going to carry Rose's for each and my fiance and I are going to place one rose on each chair. One idea for you
I was thinking about doing that too. But im not sure if looking over and seeing my moms picture will be too hard. I'm also concerened its going to be very hard in my dad. I'm not sure what to do. I want something to honor my mom but I don't want it to be sad. I have also lost all of my grandparents and my FH has lost all but 1 grand parent so Im not sure how or if to include them. I am lost with this issue.
Put the picture and maybe a candle on a small table in the back and off to the side. Do not make mourning absolutely central to a celebration. It's confusing and upsetting and there's a good chance you will lose it during the ceremony, already a powerful emotional experience.
