4 Ways to Honor a Deceased Loved One at Your Wedding
There’s nothing harder to bear than the death of a loved one – and anyone who has been through this can definitely attest to the truth of the pain, of the sorrow and of the complete sense of sadness that can overwhelm those who have been left behind.
If you are planning your wedding, and if you would like to honor the beautiful memory of your lost loved one during the Big Day, you can definitely do this. Here are 4 ways in which you can do this:
• Their favorite food could become part of your wedding menu. If this special person in your life used to have a favorite food, see how you can include it in the menu. Also, if they had a unique recipe they always liked, you could include this in the menu as well.
• Wearing something of theirs could make you feel closer to them. His favorite tie, her beautiful heirloom brooch, that amazing wedding veil she wore on her wedding day or his most beloved dress shirt – they could all become part of your wedding attire. This is a sentimental touch your lost loved one would have truly appreciated!
• Leaving their seat empty will let the world see that you will always keep them in your heart. They might not be able to be there with you physically – but, deep down, you know they are really following you and taking care of you from wherever you are.
• Playing their favorite song can also be a very emotional way of honoring them. Music is more powerful than time, fashion, language or anything else, really. Their favorite song will always remind you of them – so why not include it with one of your wedding highlights? This person would have definitely loved to see this at your wedding!
