Losing a loved one sucks and I’m sure there’s nothing we’d want more than to have them with us during life’s special moments. One of the the hardest things to do is find the strength to live and celebrate life after someone close to you moves on, but always remember you are a part of their legacy and a walking monument to them. However, if you would like to do something extra special in their memory, here are few ways you can honor them. (See our previous post on 10 Ways to Honor Deceased Loved Ones at Your Wedding)

No matter how you choose to celebrate or honor their memory, know there is nothing you do from there on out that they aren’t a part of. As always we hope you found some inspiration for your big day.

    DO NOT DO A BALLOON RELEASE!! Balloons pose risk to many animals and create trash! Do you really want to honor someone by littering, killing things and filling the ocean full of garbage!? I love and miss you so much I am making trash for you? Think beyond yourself to the bigger picture and do anything else!
