When that special day comes inevitably, between the couple, there is almost always at least one relative, maybe a direct family member or perhaps a dear friend that one of you would like to offer a honorable tribute to, so it was in at our wedding, my mother had passed away many years before and I wanted in some way to include her in our wedding – I am forever certain that mom would have loved my husband and they would have been great friends.
A couple of quick tips and suggestions.
A song that maybe you both shared and loved, it doesn’t have to be soppy or sentimental, and obviously is even better if it’s of the happy joyous kind.
A mention in the program is always tasteful, it gives guests a minute to reflect for themselves on any lost family they might have and allow them the peace to do so privately during an otherwise happy occasion.
What we did was a quick mention during our couples speech, where I thanked my father for all of his help and ability in raising me and mentioned that he had help of one that we could never forget.
The big trick of course is not to make it the center of attention, remember this is happy day, right.
