Starting today we will have three lovely guest bloggers while I am out on my babymoon. Thanks to these ladies and the rest of the Just Wenderful team for covering! xoxo
Today we have Cris of Kiss My Tulle sharing how she remembered her dad in her wedding. There are so many ways to do this, but her way was definitely true to her dad.
There’s a lot of talk about memorizing or remembering lost
loved ones at your wedding. There are many ways to incorporate those that have
passed on during your wedding day. Here’s how I handled it when my dad died
months before my wedding day:
The main thing was incorporating my dad’s signature red
bandana (he wore one every single day ala Willie Nelson). I had the one that I
stole from him when I left home at 18 placed on a chair (between my mom and
little brother) during the ceremony. I also cut hearts out of another bandana
and my mom, siblings, and I had them pinned inside our wedding clothes. In the
programs, I included a brief sentence thanking my dad for introducing me to my
husband and insisting we go out on a date (true story).
Thanks again Cris! It's always hard to deal with matters like this on your special day. I lost my mother 2 months before my wedding and I do wish I would've incorporated a little more of her in my day.I think Cris did it perfectly! Hope everyone has a safe Holiday weekend!
