Hello all you Chatties out there! Its Veterans Day, and Chatty Brides and Southern New England Weddings Magazine wants to send out a big shout out and heart-felt thank you to of the men and women who have served in our armed forces!Like so many, Veterans Day makes me think of all of the personal family members and ancestors who fought on behalf of our country. I see photos of their stiff sepia-tone poses in proud uniforms and I wish that I could have known them better or in some cases at all.So how does all of this fit into a wedding blog, you ask? Well, as I have been going through the weddings that were submitted for the 2013 Real Wedding section of the upcoming Southern New England Weddings Magazine (on shelves in early January), I have seen some unique ways of honoring family members that are no longer with us. Here are a few examples that I thought were fitting for today.
