Good Evening Gents,

I need some suggestions. My fiancee want to honor those dearly departed at our wedding and not sure how. We have both lost Aunts, almost all of my grandparents and my brothers. 

What would you guys suggest we'd like to do something physical instead of a note in the program.

Just over a year ago, we attended my niece's wedding. One thing that surprised me was the table my sister (niece's mom) decorated in the reception location displaying pictures of those who have passed away from both our family and my new nephew's family.  I stood at that table for quite some time looking at pictures of my parents and other family members who we have lost in the past few decades.  That table meant a lot to many people there. To me, it almost felt as if the family members in those pictures were in attendance, enjoying the celebration at the reception. Just sharing an idea that maybe you could incorporate into what you are trying to do at your wedding. 

What about a song/music dedication, or a specific reading in honor of?

In Ireland people tend to mention deceased relatives either as part of the ceremony religious or otherwise and also in the Wedding speeches which is nice, a toast to absent friends is always good

I like the "toast to absent friends" one.

Maybe their could be a table with candles and a close relative of each lost family member could light it in remembrance. 

My first reaction would be: GHOST TABLE!

My second reaction would be: Weird . . .

I have seen table settings where the person's photo is at plate.  Works.  

A simple table set aside with photos of the remembered also work.  

Perhaps a collage of everyone who could not join dead or simply RSVP can't.  

As part of the wedding party I ended up doing a modified penultimate toast to abstinent friends.

Just options.

 

Absent or abstinent?  A collage of abstinent sounds like a dull wedding photo

How about a collage of absinthe?

Delicious. How does the bride feel about green.
