My FI's father passed away suddenly on October 30, 2002.
My mom passed away this past January after a long illness.
We're working on subtle ways to commemorate our parents at our wedding. I'm putting a picture of Mama in my bouquet; he's putting a picture of his dad in his chest pocket. They'll be mentioned in the prayers. Pretty standard stuff. BUT he want to take it a step further: he want to have pictures taken at the cemetaries where each of our parents were buried.
I have no problem taking a moment during the wedding week to visit our respective parents and having a private moment to "talk" to them, but he kinda wants us to get all dressed and march right on up to the grave with a photographer.
He was really emotional when he said it (as the anniversary of his dad's passing is coming up) so I said okay, but I immediately regretted it. I'm more than willing to compromise, even though I'm not sure how, but I'd be horrified to be standing on my mother's grave in my gown. I don't even think she'd approve! LOL
