Display Photos at the Ceremony

You can display your favorite photos on a reserved chair in their honor, or display framed photos on your guestbook table.

Another lovely idea is adding a photo locket to your bouquet for you to walk down the aisle with. Bonus: this can act as your “Something Old”!

Include a Family Recipe

Whether it’s on your dinner menu, for dessert, or as a late-night snack, include a beloved family receipt to honor your lost loved one.

Light a Candle For Them

Either at your ceremony or reception, take a moment to light a candle in their honor along with a moment of silence before carrying on with the celebrations.
