My mom passed away 5 years ago from cancer. I've been throwing around different ideas of how to remember her during my ceremony, and have found a lot of good ideas already.
I think what I am going to do is have a line in the program about her (along with deceased grandparents) and carry her crucifix necklace around my bouquet. I also wanted a single rose or something on the seat that she would have sat in. Because our wedding party is quite uneven and my brother is a groomsmen, I was also considering having him carry in that single rose during the portion of the ceremony when my mom would have been seated and placing it on her chair - because my brother probably would have escorted her. Is that wildly inappropriate? I don't want to make a huge deal over it or anything, but I do want my mom's memory to have a special place in my wedding.
