Honor loved ones within your wedding in a special way

There is no doubt that family is important to you! Especially when it comes to such a grand milestone in life, your wedding day. And although at almost every wedding, we wish that a loved one was there to join in on the celebration, this unfortunately is not always possible.

However, even if a loved one has passed, it is important to know that you can still honor them within your big day. But, what are the best ways to do so?

Here at I Thee Wed, we strive to create weddings that reflect nothing but love! That’s why we have gathered some top ways that you can honor loved ones within your big day. If you are seeking some creative ideas, be sure to continue reading for some inspiration:

·         Jewelry. Passed down through generations, jewelry is a great aspect to incorporate into your wedding to honor your loved one. From your mother’s necklace to your grandmother’s wedding band, you can adorn yourself with aspects of their lives, to honor them within your big day. Pendants are also a lovely choice, as you can insert a photo of your special someone, so it is as though they are with you on the big day as well. Also, jewelry can become your “something old” as well.
·         Display photos. Creating a table within your wedding reception that is set up just for a photo display of passed loved ones is something that can be truly cherished. Create some gorgeous frames that reflect your wedding theme to place the photos within, and allow the timeless beauty to be showcased. You can include photos of you and your loved ones, if available, which is a great way to tie them into your wedding day, however, any photos will do just fine.
·         The ceremony. Your wedding ceremony is a great event for honoring your loved ones. Consider including them within your ceremony program, as a lovely tribute is a great way to acknowledge their meaning within your life. Also, consider a moment of silence as a great remembrance, and while this occurs, you can also take part in lighting candles at the altar, which is a very traditional way to remember and honor the special people who have passed in your life.

Even if loved ones are not there to physically attend your big day, know that you can still honor them in such a loving and unique way! Here at I Thee Wed, we take pride is creating such wonderful weddings for our couples. If you are still in search for a wedding planner in the greater Cincinnati area, be sure to contact us today for your consultation.

Does a "Day-Of Coordinator" only show up on the wedding day?

"I've done all my own planning and want a "day-of" coordinator but can't find one who will show up on the wedding day only !  Why?" There's probably a lot of confusion amongst engaged couples because of the term "day-of" coordinator. If you end up speaking to someone who says they will only show up on the wedding day and save you lots of money because of it, please stay clear of them! Many wedding planners may label their coordination as "day-of" wedding coordination, but there is far more involved than just showing up on the wedding day when it comes to a professional wedding planner who knows what she/he is doing. Photo Credit: Estes Images Here are some reasons why a wedding coordinator shouldn't show up  only  on the wedding day: Many planners begin their coordination services 4-8 weeks out because many venues request the wedding day timeline one month prior. A 1 1/2 to 2 hour timeline meeting typically kicks off

A Venue Coordinator vs. A Wedding Coordinator

Unfortunately, things haven't changed much in the wedding industry regarding the confusion between a venue coordinator and a wedding coordinator. Couples still seem very confused between these two roles and end up not hiring a wedding coordinator after speaking with their venue. Their day ends up in disappointment because they assumed they would have that one, key person to go to and rely on for their entire wedding day. Instead, they have to wait until they walk through their venue doors to receive some coordination by their venue coordinator or banquet captain, who's primary responsibility is to the get the meal out on time and at an ideal temperature.

Ask if they will be w
