Weddings are usually a time of joy and celebration. Some couples, however, struggle with a loss in the family before the event or, the couple may simply want to honor a passed love one during their ceremony. It can be difficult to convey a sense of loss while maintaining an uplifting mood. BridalBuzz published advice on honoring loved ones during a wedding, and Do the Bride a Favor elaborates on these tips.
Photo tables are quickly becoming a top way for families to pay tribute to loved ones. These tables usually display pictures of both the couple and family members. Not only is it a wonderful way to honor current family members and those that have passed, it is also a wonderful way to get family members to remember pleasant memories.
Some families dedicate an empty seat around the table for family members that have passed. Placing a picture or a bouquet of flowers on the seat are wonderful ways to dedicate a small part of the ceremony to a loved one.
Playing a loved one’s favorite song during the ceremony or at the reception is another way to honor a passed loved one.
Keep Memories Close
Some couples are choosing to keep a memento or special object from a family member on them during the ceremony as a tribute. Wearing an heirloom piece of jewelry or using a special piece of flatware at the reception are both wonderful ways to honor a loved one.
Honor in Favors
Wedding favors are commonplace in weddings today. Incorporating the memory of a loved one into this part of the ceremony is a great idea. If the person loved baking or sweets, giving personalized wedding candy such as a chocolate medallion engraved with their initials or custom novelty items that the guest would find entertaining but may not purchase for themselves.
Keeping the mood light and happy is important during a wedding. However, there are ways to make a respectful tribute to lost loved ones during the event.
Do the Bride a Favor gives tips on how to honor loved ones at a wedding such as using a photo table, dedicating a favorite song to them, or giving honorary favors.
