Your wedding is a big deal for so many different people in your life in particular your family who have been with you through it all. Your parents will no doubt be a ball of emotions on this special day – it’s such a fun, and momentous occasion for all the family and of course seeing their little girl or boy at the top of the aisle is sure to bring on the tears! While the day is of course all about you and your soon to be new hubby or wife, it can be lovely to include those closest to you in some sweet little ways as well. And there are some gorgeous ways you can go about it from first looks with your parents and siblings to reserved signs on their ceremony seats and reception tables. Check out more great ideas below…

If you’re looking to include your parents or grandparents in your day, opt for a special table dedicated to your ‘family tree’ with pictures of family members on their wedding day. It’s a gorgeous way to honour their love stories and you could even add in small write up about how they met or some love quotes or song lyrics.
