5 Ways to Honor Your Families at Your Wedding (Part 1)

Five Ways to Honor Your Families at Your Wedding

Your wedding day marks the union, not just of you and your fiancé, but also of your two families. Finding ways to honor the recent and distant past on your big day is a special, sentimental touch that shows how much the two of you look forward to becoming a part of one another’s lives. With the right personalized wedding decorations and other thoughtful details, you can give a nod to the past as you celebrate the start of your shared future.

1. Flame and sand.

Lighting a unity candle during your wedding ceremony is a beautiful way to symbolize the union of your families. When you choose a candle set to suit your theme, you can even include your mothers by having them light the taper candles that the two of you will use to light the central pillar. If you’re concerned about windy conditions making candle lighting difficult during an outdoor ceremony,unity sand vases are a great alternative. At the right time in the ceremony, each of you takes a vase and empties it into another vase, mixing the two colors to symbolize the joining of your families.

The Original Personalized Weddding Handkerchief Company – since 1992

A custom embroidery company specializing in creating personalized beautiful, heirloom-quality keepsakes for many occasions, including: weddings, anniversaries, birth of a baby, baptism and christening gifts and more. Since 1992 I, Sandra, has specialized in personalized wedding handkerchiefs and baby blankets.

When my husband and I decided to have children,I knew I couldn’t go back to my corporate nine-to-five job.   There was always a creative side to me, and after having my first child, I would look for that truly unique and elegant baby keepsake gift but couldn’t seem to find a quality product that I could appreciate and softness my son would love to cuddle and snuggle. Therefore, I started creating the Li’l Inspirations baby line and shortly thereafter, expanded into the wedding industry. (One day – about 20 years ago (give or take a year or two) – when I was reflecting back on my own wedding day, I had my ‘ah ha’ moment, and that’s when I really started to focus on the bridal industry.)

The name of the company is inspired by my children.  My baby line inspiration comes from them as they were “li’l” at the time, so hence the company name….Li’l Inspirations. My children are a bit older now, and my main focus is wedding and bridal, but they think it’s pretty cool that my company’s name was inspired by them.
