    we will mention rays dad more than once probably. I know his bro & best man will in his speech and i will mention my nan in mine. but i know rays family and what happened aty his bro's wedding. every time someone so much as mentioned his dads name the whole scottish side of the family started bawling....loudly! i did too though so oh well!
  • i was thinking about doing this as well cos i know my cousin would love to be with us on the day. i really want to mention her in my speech cos she meant so much to me but i'm worried her mum, my auntie may break down...and i really don't want to upset anyone. i was thinking though because my cousin never met my H2B something along the line of "i know she would ahve loved u as much as i do...."

  • thanks.

  • Hi are you having a civil service or a church wedding ?

    I dont know about civils ervices but the vicar asked us if we wanted him to remember anyone who had passed away and mention them in the service

    I thought it was a lovely guesture and saved me getting all choked up later xxxxxxxxxxxxx

    im having a memorial candle made for my my mam as we lost her last year and we will light this through the church and reception i think everyone is dreding the speeches to be honest for this reason.

    ok, millsy sorry to hear that, happygirl, that is a lovely thing, think maybe we could talk to our priest, that sounds like a lovely way of doing it without everyone getting all emotional afterwards, xx

    My Dad died 2 years ago and there will be a variety of things that I intend to do to honour him on that day. The first one is get married at his church. The second is type a message in my order of service book, I am thiking about the third. I was Daddy's girl, so its actually going yto be a bitter sweet experience. I'll be walking down the aisle with my brother....!
