My Man-of-honor (my younger brother, only sibling, and best friend) recently passed away suddenly due to a terrible motorcycle accident. He was literally my Go-To person in wedding planning (even helping me pick out my dress.) My wedding is June 30th. Does anyone have any sweet ideas to honor his memory at my wedding?
We were best friends and so close in age ("Irish Twins.") His girlfriend (who happens to be one of my best friends) has really stepped up with the planning. But I'd like to have some way to honor him. Some way for me to still feel his presence and let others know he is still with us in spirit on this day.
Some ideas people have shared so far: At the reception when we are introduced as Mr & Mrs, I could come in wearing my brother's leather jacket, and leave it on my chair for the reception. Having a photo of him where I will have the sign in book (I am having photos of our families wedding portraits.)
Has anyone else been in such a situation?
I truly appreciate all your help!
