The absence of a lost loved one can weigh heavily during weddings and other special occasions. Sometimes, it can be difficult to find a way to pay tribute to a deceased loved one at a wedding without putting stress on an otherwise happy event. However, there are plenty of ways to invite the memory of lost loved ones into a ceremony without casting sadness over the affair.
Music is a wonderful way to honor a deceased loved one at a wedding. Play a favorite song and dedicate it to his or her memory. You can also honor lost loved ones with special flowers in the bridal bouquet or on the wedding altar. Another idea is to incorporate something from the deceased into the ceremony, such as a special item of clothing or piece of jewelry. Displaying photographs and setting a place at a dining table are other ways to remember a deceased friend or family member.
