Most of us have someone who we love dearly, who just can't be at our wedding, whether they've left this life, are deployed, or just can't make the trip. So how do we honor those loved ones, or show that we are thinking of them, and including them in our big day? Here are some of my favorite ways!
A simple frame set up, with photos of those not in attendance. If they've sent a note, or if you have a sweet letter they gave you, even years prior, clip it up (or a copy of it) with the photo! This is a great way to honor multiple loved ones who couldn't be there in person on your big day.
Photos or a keepsake on your bouquet! - This is such a sweet way to literally carry your loved ones with you down the aisle, and have them in your wedding day photos. Long after your bridal bouquet withers away, you will always have these photos as a reminder that they were with you on the biggest day of your life.
Save them a seat - Placing an article of clothing, a photo, a sign, a flower...anything that reminds you of the person who couldn't be there. Saving them a seat, making sure your photographer gets great shots of the seat, reminds you, and other family and friends, of someone who you wish was there, taking part in your big day.
Have a piece of their clothing sewn into your wedding gown! Your alterations specialist should easily be able to add in a bit of material from a special shirt, favorite pair of blue jeans, or your mother or grandmother's wedding gown into your wedding gown.
All of these sweet signs - There are just so many ways to say that you miss someone, and are thinking of them on your wedding day. These signs are easy to make, many have printable options free online! All of these I found on Pinterest (which is a wealth of ideas for all thing DIY wedding decor).
