It’s not often that I find myself dissolving in tears as I pin, but today I did. With Mother’s Day coming, I wanted to do a post about remembering Mothers and Grandmothers and other loved ones who passed. And what I found was example after example of great ways to pay tribute to generations past. Lovely ways to hold their place in your day as well as in your heart–an empty chair with a framed photo, a collection of your grandparents wedding rings worn on a chain for your ‘something borrowed’, centerpieces made of their wedding memories. There are so many small ways to remember them. Here I featured a sweet locket pin on the bouquet, and the brooch. It seems that most weddings I’ve been to lately have had a collection of wedding photos from the grandparents, though I love them on the wall with ribbons as in the picture below. The votives featured below are really pretty simple DIY and a great way to integrate old photos throughout the wedding.
No matter how you choose, remembering loved ones is something that has a timelessness beyond timelessness. May all of you have a happy and memorable Mother’s Day honoring the women who helped make you who you are.
