Sweets-  I love what is being read at the beginning of your ceremony.  Where did you find that?  My mom died a little over a year ago and I'm getting married next May.  I miss her like crazy and wish she was here to help with wedding planning.  I would love to have something like that said at the beginning of our wedding, but I don't think I could handle it as I started crying just reading it.  So, so beautiful.

Mar-the charms are really lovely.  I definately think this is something that I will try to do for our wedding.

Aw...that is sweet!  It was part of a wedding package I got from an officiant here.  I signed up on their website requesting pricing information and it spit out an auto-generated "personalized wedding package" to my e-mail instantly. Cheesy

There are all sorts of readings, poems, ceremony configurations, etc., included.  If anyone is interested, I'd be more than happy to forward it via e-mail (it's quite long and in a Word document).  PM me your e-mail if you're interested.

All right, after spending the day with my Grandma, I realize one thing. I need to be more specific when asking for recipes. I have been making her recipe for "candied pecans" all these years, hoping they will turn out like hers. When, what I should have been asking her for was her recipe for "SWEDISH pecans". Good grief, I have been making one recipe and hoping it will magically morph into another.

Now, the candied pecans are good. Mind you. But, the SWEDISH pecans are un-friggin-believable. And these are the ones she did for our wedding favours.

I have pried this recipe from her hands, witnessed her cooking said recipe, and can confirm, THIS, ladies, is the real deal............

Swedish Nuts - by Marcy Bennett, by way of Jean Schell

3 1/2 to 4 cups of pecan halves
1 cup sugar
dash of salt
2 egg whites, stiffly beaten
1/2 cup butter

Toast nuts until light brown 325 degrees (put them on a sided cookie sheet)
Fold sugar, salt into egg whites, beat until stiff peaks form
Fold nuts into meringue
Melt butter onto another empty cookie sheet (sided cookie sheet) and spread nut mixture over butter.
Bake at 325 degrees for 30 minutes
Stir every 10 minutes.
No butter should remain

You nuts should turn out with a light coating of egg whites, all crystalized and delicious.

Go, now, try this.
You will hate me for it!

That's a lovely idea.  It is so important to me to include my late grandmother in the ceremony somehow, but I didn't want to be morbid either.  I'm going to wear some of her antique jewelry (in my hair b/c the woman was tiny and no necklaces or rings fit me), but I might make a pendant for either the bouquet or to pin to the inside of my dress, so she's with me.  Smiley

Yeah! Can't wait to see yours!
I'm going to do a trial run with the bouquet wrapping this week, and see how I want to hang them from the satin wrap.

My FI and I both wanted to commemorate certain family members that have passed, during our wedding, without being morbid and making everyone sad. So, we're adding a memorium page to our ceremony program, and I've created charms for us both. My father and my Grandfather have passed, and I wanted to have a remembrance of each of them. I got silver charms, found my favourite photos of them, shrunk them down, cut them to fit, glued them into the charms, and covered them with a protective layer of Diamond Glaze. I am going to hang these from my bridal bouquet. A subtle, yet meaningful remembrance for me. For my FI, I did a charm of his late Grandfather, then another of his other Grandma & his Papa, who just passed a few weeks ago. I am attaching these to the hankerchief he will wear in his pocket on our wedding day, then he can have his special people with him, too.

Here is a photo of our charms.

This idea is beautiful, I love it so much!
My father passed away when I was younger and at my wedding I'd like to wear a locket with his picture so he can "walk" me down the aisle.
This project is great and gave me goosebumps Smiley


I am sorry for your losses as well Sad

Aw..how sad!

They look very pretty hanging, though.  The ribbon you used is very lovely.
