How do we honor our dearly departed when they can no longer be with us on our wedding? Having a wedding memorial or two is a heartfelt way of sharing this joyous occasion with them.
When news that Bongbong Marcos had walked Isabelle Daza down the aisle reached our Facebook and Instagram feeds, we all wondered why. Then our collective hearts broke when we saw Bob Nicolas’ SDE, saw how the bride fought to keep her tears at bay. Now we know: Belle’s dad had passed away just months before the wedding. Her wedding memorial was having her dad’s closest friend give her away now that he couldn’t do so himself.
It’s every couple’s dream to have all their loved ones present during their big day. After all, how many of us secretly wished that our own father-daughter dance could be just as epic as in the viral video above? But sometimes we have to say goodbye sooner than we’d like. Here are five ways to help make up for that lost opportunity to have your dad dance to ‘N Sync’s “Bye, Bye, Bye” with you.
