Taking Care To Honor Both Families At Your Wedding

While many important people will be seen walking down the aisle, and standing with you at the altar, you are likely to have a few family members on each side without a prominent wedding role. How can you make sure all of these important people receive recognition during your wedding celebration? There are ways you can acknowledge people like your grandparents, or other family members like aunts and uncles. Some couples can choose something simple, like the use of corsages and boutonnieres to note someone’s importance. You can also include a message in your wedding program, and create a family table near your table at the reception. 

These Gestures Can Help You Show Love And Respect To Family During Your Wedding

Corsages and boutonnieres are traditionally given to relatives, so you can count on other guests to recognize the significance of these flowers. Matching their colors to your wedding colors can help make that connection even clearer. If you have a wedding program, you can provide a list of relatives, and even add a note about the importance of these people in your lives.

During your reception, you should think about the placement of family when you create a seating chart. Seating charts are particularly beneficial when your guest list is larger, or when serving plated meals. You can also use your chart to create a tribute space for your and your partner’s relatives.

Honoring Family Members Who Have Passed

You can honor relatives who have passed in notable ways, or you can create a private tribute. You can create an “in memoriam” passage in your wedding program to celebrate those who are no longer with you, or have a table with photos of people who have passed. If you prefer a private tribute, you can include a small photo of them in your wedding bouquet.
