Honor your departed loved ones by saving them a seat

There are lots of ways to memorialize lost friends and family at weddings, but this is one of my favorites. Alison and Jeremy saved a seat at the ceremony to honor their family and friends who have passed, including Alison's mother who passed away only five weeks before the wedding.

At Kristin and Doug's wedding, Kristin made this bouquet to honor Doug's mother, and he laid it on the seat when he entered the ceremony. You could also add in a photo if you want to personalize the flowers.
