23 Ways to Remember Loved Ones at Your Wedding

Your wedding day is a celebration with loved ones, so it’s only natural to want to include those friends or relatives who’ve passed away before you get to say “I do.” Your inclusion of a deceased relative can be as subtle as a symbolic white rose in your bouquet or as public as a moment of silence at the ceremony, and we rounded up a few more ways below. It’s also a good idea to check in with any close relatives who may be sensitive to the death—from there, you can decide how you’d like to honor them without turning the wedding into something that feels like a heavy memorial service.
