As a Lincoln wedding florist, we understand that not everyone can be present on your special day. However, there are ways to honour, celebrate, and remember those who can't be with you. Here are 5 simple ideas for incorporating the memory of loved ones into your wedding day:

Display photographs of loved ones.

At Isabelle’s wedding, small gold frames scattered around the table flower arrangements where we dined displayed our own family’s wedding day pictures. It’s a beautiful and personal way to remember your loved ones through the generations, and share their memory with your guests.

Plant a tree or flowers in memory of loved ones at the ceremony or reception location.

This is a moment everyone can be a part of and take the time to pay tribute to a loved one on a special day.

Incorporate their favourite flower or colour into a floral arrangement such as the buttonholes - these are worn close to the heart.

Attach a memento of theirs to your bouquet, such as a brooch or necklace

This can be a meaningful and personal way to honour your loved one and keep them close to you on your special day.

Include a floral tribute to your loved one on your wedding cake.

You could create a small arrangement of their favourite flowers or scatter some petals from their preferred bloom.
