Honouring the past at your wedding
Recently, I read about a themed wedding, where a bride used the motif of her mother’s pendant on her invitations, programme and even on her dance floor. She inherited the necklace with the pendant when her mother passed away and wanted to incorporate her mother into her wedding even though she wasn’t there physically. The bride was quoted as saying, “You can imagine how powerful it was for us to have that symbol of her love surrounding and supporting our union.” If you’ve lost someone close to you, remember that although weddings signal a new beginning for you and your fiancé(e), celebrating your past can be a meaningful way to personalise your reception and ceremony. The key to creating long-lasting memories for both you and your guests is to incorporate personal flair, cues and symbols that reflect your love and history.
