We all wish that everyone makes our wedding day. Sometimes, however, a special love one is not with us on our special day. I was assisting at a wedding this past weekend that did something special for a loved one. The person had passed shortly before the wedding and the bride wanted a special honor for them. As the bride and her father walked down the aisle, they stopped right before the last row of chairs to light a remembrance candle. Below is a picture of the set up
This was a beautiful gesture that allowed the loved one to be still be part of the ceremony. I wanted to share this with you to show that there are many ways to honor loved ones that have passed before your wedding day. Maybe you have a parent that is no longer with you, it would be a wonderful gesture to light a candle on your way to the altar to honor their memory. I wish that this candle was never needed, but if it is, this allows all family members to be a part of your special day.
