Thinking about death at a wedding seems like an oxymoron, but it is a reality for some couples. There are some beautiful ways to remember a loved one on your wedding day.
The most personal way to remember a loved one is to include their photo(s) on your person or in your decor. This makes the memory personal to you, without overtly bringing it up in your wedding ceremony.
If you want your guests to share in remembering your loved one(s) you can dedicate a song or a reading in your ceremony to them, or light a candle in their memory. If you want to celebrate your loved one’s fun side, ask your DJ or band to play their favorite dance song, or dedicate a signature drink to them.
Even through weddings are a happy occasion, there is no reason why you can’t share your happy day with the memory of loved ones. A wedding is about sharing the day with those closest to you and if those closest have passed on, you should have a special way to share it with them too.
