Are you missing someone who had a favourite flower or colour that you can include in your Queenstown wedding flowers? Talk to your florist about incorporating some special blooms in your bouquets and buttonholes.
4. Play sentimental songs
When curating your Queenstown wedding playlist you can include songs that remind you of the friends and family who can’t be with you on the day. This might be a favourite song of theirs, a song that played on their wedding day, a song with lyrics that are meaningful to your relationship with them, or any other sentimental connection.
6. Display photos
If you’re really going to miss seeing the friendly faces of your favourite people then why not print and display them for your Queenstown wedding day? You could pop their photos on seats amongst your other guests, have them on a side table of honour, or hang them up around your venue. To be more discrete, opt for a locket with the photos inside.
7. Write them a postcard
Grab some local Queenstown postcards and address them to your friends and family around the world. Prepare your messages to loved ones ahead of time and during your ceremony you can sign and stamp these wedding keep-sakes ready for posting. Who doesn’t love getting something through the mail that isn’t just another bill?!
Sometimes just acknowledging that there are people you love missing on your Queenstown wedding day is enough. Your celebrant can mention them by name to honour the fact that you wish they could be there with you.
