Remembering loved ones

Remembering loved ones

Q Tell us how you would plan a wedding sustainably.
A Rachael Tout says: There are lots of different ways that you can remember someone at your wedding sustainably, without turning to disposable items. It's a lovely idea to raise a glass to them in your toast or remember them with music; your first dance could be a piece of music you all enjoyed.

You could include a favourite meal or drink on your menu that reminds you of who you are missing – did they make the best pudding? Or could you add a cocktail that celebrates them? For example, was your best friend full of fizz? If so, add it to your menu in honour of that person – it's sure to raise a smile.

If you're having a faith wedding, you can ask your faith leader to remember your loved one in your wedding prayers.

You could ask for donations for a charity close to your heart so that favours using plastic materials etc aren't thrown away after the event. At St Wilfrid's Hospice, we support couples who'd like to have a wedding donation box or wedding favours related to raising money for the Hospice, so that the charity can go on to support other families in a similar situation in the future.
