Ways to Remember the Deceased at Your Wedding

If someone you love has passed, you know that remembering their spirit at your wedding is of utmost importance. For me, my wedding would be missing many deceased family member but most significantly my dad. I spent hours trying to figure out the balance between “remembrance” and “this isn’t a funeral”! Ultimately, I did a little combination of a few things: a bracelet with my dad’s signature (so he could “walk me down the aisle”), a seat left empty at our ceremony, and a patch of one of his blue work shirts inside my dress (as my something blue). But for different brides, different things will have more meaning and be a better fit. so here are a few ideas that I thought were particularly sweet and honorable ways of remember those who have passed.

Monogram Letters for Wedding Showers

We’ve all been to wedding showers where the couple’s monogram (aka – the couple’s initials) are all over the place. From monogrammed napkins, to custom cups and even some of the gifts the bride receives. So today’s post is all about unique ways to display the wedding monogram. Marquee letters are super “on trend” right now, but I love the flower ones or even some DIY with the yarn or button options as well :)

Paint Brush Archway Marriage Proposal by The Yes Girls

lgbt proposal by the yes girls

 

Kieona’s gal loves art. She loves to paint and she is obsessed with all shades of blue! For their proposal we thought it would be so cute to have tons of paint brushes dipped in various shades of blue hanging in an arch! Then, we had our beautiful artist in California hand paint signs that dated milestones in the couple’s relationship. Throw in tons of candles, a beautiful white and blue flower arrangement, and an iconic Atlanta gazebo – voila you’ve got yourself one unique and memorable marriage proposal!

Wedding Planning Perils and How To Avoid Them

Unfortunately, planning your wedding day full of love and excitement can bring on just the opposite: fights and frustrations. Here are a list of common quarrels and how to avoid them or get through them.

    1. Money. Weddings are expensive. There is no getting around that fact. Whether it is the catering price tag, photographer, or honeymoon, sticker shock can cause a lot of fights especially when tensions and stress are running high. Try to stay level headed and record costs in a budget to stay within your own budget range. Make sacrifices, after all, marriage is all about compromise and making sacrifices for each other. Figure out what is most important to you as a couple on your big day.
    2. Guest list (kids vs. no kids). The guest list is a touchy subject, especially for events where you are merging two families. Family styles might be extremely different. One side might be a younger crowd, while the other might be older with a lot of young children. Whether it is the debate on inviting kids vs. no kids (which is a huge conversation in itself) or if you are deciding on inviting a bigger mix of family than friends, think rationally. Who will you look back on and not even remember seeing at your celebration? Who encouraged and loved both of you as a couple leading up to your wedding?
      children at your wedding?

 

  1. Attire. Wedding attire is a huge piece of the wedding. This is where the bride and groom get to express their own style in a very visual way. Most brides want to be able to have a say in what their groom will wear, especially if him and his guys want to sport neon patterned socks and sunglasses during the ceremony. Keep an open mind and listen to each others opinions.
  2. Registry. Do we really need a sno-cone maker darling? White towels or grey towels? What brand of dishes did you grow up with in comparison to his family’s? If you do your registry in a day or two, you may get overwhelmed with so many decisions and having another opinion making a lot of decisions with you. Like earlier, make sure to compromise and not get caught up in who is “right” or “wrong.”
  3. Honeymoon. Relax on the beach drinking pina coladas or ski down a mountain in Colorado? The two of you may have extremely different ideas of what is relaxing and what is an energy crusher. Pick a spot where both of you can unwind together while creating memories you both can look back on for the rest of your lives.

I love flowers. Seriously, I think they are my love language. So larger than life bouquets just scream “gorgeous” to me! Brides all over the country seem to be agreeing with me, as oversized bouquets are a trend for both brides and bridesmaids. Large blooms and draping greenery just make for a stunning statement for any wedding :)
