I made this for a friend whose deceased father she wanted remembered at the ceremony. Tried to make something not tachy and elegant. Did my own cutouts on matting board from Michael’s.. Added some bling (because what good DIY wouldn’t be complete without bling).. I also created various black and white pictures of her and her dad with hints of color using adobe photoshop elements.. I embossed a couple of different poems the bride was fond of and reminded her of her dad and made sure they made it on the board.. What do you guys think?

Wow that is really nice of you! I was actually thinking of how I want to incorporate my dad into my wedding because he passed away last year. I love the hints of color in the black and white photos. Your friend will love it. She will know that you are such a wonderful friend of thinking of her father and what he means to her on this day.

Two different poems:
We’ll always remember that special smile,
That caring heart,
That warm embrace you always gave us.
You being there for Mom and Us
During good times and bad times,
No matter what.
We’ll always remember you, Dad
Because they’ll never be another one
To replace you in our hearts
And the love we will always have for you
Love Lives On
Those we love remain with us
For love itself lives on,
And cherished memories never fade
Because a loved one is gone.
Those we love can never be more
Than a thought apart,
For as long as there is memory
They will live on in the heart.

I think this is very beautiful!!! It is something your friend will always have to remind her of her Dad…you did an awesome job! I think I am going to try and do something similar for my fiance who’s mother just passed away this year. Thanks for the creative idea!

I love this idea too!! I was trying to think of a way to make something in rememberance of my mom and something like this would be perfect but i’m not sure where I would be able to place it. Any ideas on where you would set something up like this at?

I love this. My dad is still here, but he’s very sick. We’re hopeful he’ll make it, but we also have the understanding that he may not be. If he’s not there, then this is something that I would love to do! My fiance could do it for his grandmother and dad. Thank you so much for this idea! This is beautiful!
