5 Ways To Remember A Loved One At Your Wedding

By  | 

It can be heartbreaking when you realise amongst all the preparations and celebrations, that a special someone cannot be there to watch you get married, walk you down the aisle and throw confetti.

Although they aren’t standing there with us in person, your loved one can take pride of place at your wedding in a beautifully symbolic way.

Here are some simply lovely ways to remember your loved one at your big day:

1. Doves

Doves are very symbolic for unity, love and remembrance. Place your pair of Doves; Doves mate for life at the doors of your service and release them from a ornate cage or wicker basket up to the heavens as you remember that person that was dear to your heart.

2. Candles

Beautifully simple and pretty, these candles can be personalised and decorated to your taste, matching in with your colours and theme of your wedding whilst glowing in flame with your loved one’s name and beautiful poem below.

3. Bouquet Charm

Such a pretty, delicate way to make sure your loved one is close to you throughout the day. A very personal touch to have perhaps your dad or grandfather walk you down the aisle from above.

4. Frame

A perfect focal piece to include those who can’t be there. Beautifully centred round a family tree, each photo will smile out from the frame, overlooking you on the happiest day of your life.

5. Tree

A gorgeous ornament to perhaps place at your top table. With delicate branches holding hearts with each name of those you hold dear, this is a lovely way to remember and include your family and friends who cannot join you.
