Remembering Loved Ones on Your Wedding Day

Your wedding day will be a very emotional day, charged with feelings of love, excitement and maybe even a touch of sadness. A sorrow that one of your feared loved ones can’t be with you to share your special day. If you’re missing a parent, grandparent, or any close family member or friend why not honour them at your wedding day and remember them with a smile, they’d be there if they could. 

To help you acknowledge these special people here’s a list of 10 beautiful ideas to remember them on your wedding day:
