One of the hardest parts of a wedding celebration is not having your loved ones that have passed away by your side. Here are a few ways that couples can include those that they have lost, in their own special way.
Use their favorite flower in the ceremony – It is a known fact, that smell and sight are two of the most powerful senses that we have. They also have the power to bring us back to a moment or time that you cherish the most. By incorporating a favorite flower in your bouquet or flower arrangements or even wearing a scent that has that flower is a great way to honor a loved one that has passed.

Dance to their favorite song – There is something magical about music and even more so with a cherished song, that has the power to instantly transform you to a time or moment in your life. Dancing to their favorite song is a wonderful and touching way to remember a love one that can’t be with you. Even if it’s only for a few minutes, you can feel like they are dancing right there alongside you.

Have a small photo on your bouquet – We often see brides include a small photo on their bouquet as a way to remember someone. It is a very sweet gesture and almost feels like that person is with you, especially as you walk down the aisle.
