Honoring Lost Loved Ones at Your Wedding

A smile can hide a lot of sorrow. It is difficult to enjoy such a special day without having that special someone with you. I find it not only comforting but also fitting that those lost loved ones also maintain an appearance throughout your ceremony. I truly believe that although they may not be there in person, they are there in spirit, without a doubt. Let us honor those who loved us at our worst, helped us get up when we were “down,” and never let us stop going when the going gets tough!

Loving Memory

1. In Loving Memory Remembrance Sign

Whether it is for yourself or someone you care about,, a customized snapshot on a reserved chair for your loved one is a beautiful way to honor those that have passed during your wedding. Never forget their face or favorite saying. For example, my grandpa has passed but I hope to never forget what he always told me when dating, “Don’t worry, when it’s right it will just happen. You will just know he is the right one.”

2. Guestbook Alternative featuring Pets who have Passed

Oh my goodness...our furry friends are beloved. They listen without talking back and cuddle without question. I couldn’t ask for a more loyal friend than that. For that reason, that lost pet should be featured in your wedding because they have helped you get to where you are now by always lending a paw.

Bouquet Charms

3. Bouquet Wedding Charms

This is for that special someone or someones that was supposed to walk you down the aisle on your wedding day. Have them not only in your heart but in your hands as framed photos. This would be a perfect token to have with you as you vow to love and to hold until death do you part.

Memory Candle

4. Memorial Candle

This is a beautiful way to show a memento for those who have passed. With the warmth of the flickering candle behind, it allows for the words to glow “In Loving Memory.” The lit candle symbolizes the light that your lost loved ones send your way on your special day.

Add a family crest or a simple cross at the bottom of this Memorial Candle Frosted Acrylic Sign to represent those that have passed but couldn’t fit on the sign.

Why We Love it: Heart-warming, Memento, Family



Don’t let this be something that you regret or cause you grief during your wedding. While we may shed a tear, and miss their presence, on our big day they are beyond happy for us, and we should be the same for them. So, remember what those lost loved ones always said with a customizable keepsake and “keep on, keeping on” like my dad always says. They are right there holding your hand down the aisle.
