Generational Love

Incorporating loved ones into your wedding is incredibly important, you literally wouldn’t be here if it weren’t for them. Paying homage to those important members shows respect and where you come from.

If you choose not to wear a family members’ dress, a beautiful way to pay tribute to them is to arrange some photo ops of the dresses together. After the wedding framing the photos would be a thoughtful gift.

You could also display the family members’ wedding photos. I love how this couple made a sign showing the love line they come from. Hanging photos is another way to display special couples.

Capturing photos during your wedding can be just as important as displaying them since they’ll become keepsakes themselves. Both of these photos are so special and you can feel the tenderness through them.

This image with the bride and groom as well as each set of parents embraced in a kiss is another sweet idea, and a great way to show how important both sides of the family are. I imagine this would be a cherished photo for all to display.

How will you (or have you) paid tribute to your generations that came before you?

    Great blog! Thanks for coming by mine. These are all great ideas. Heh we didn’t really do anything, which is unfortunate. But, various family members brought some photos and passed them around which was really cool.

    I loved the ideas presented here. When a gown is offered, one needs a graceful way to say “No thank you” if you prefer to choose your own gown. What a lovely idea to honor the person by photographing her gown or sharing a picture of her and other brides in the family.

  3. What a lovely sentiment…and such wonderful photos you found to share it!
