Wow, UK! Well it may be hard to find vendor recommendations on here but other than that this site should be a helful site. We are certainly a bunch of planning fools!! Everyone is really nice and there are a ton of great ideas floating about. Just ask and you shall receive!

n memory of loved ones past???
submitted by Lori Liebetrau
Although death has separated us physically, faith and love have bound us eternally.
Though we cannot see you, we know you are here.
Though we cannot touch you, we feel the warmth of your smile, as we begin a new chapter in our lives.
Today we pause to reflect upon those who have shaped our character,
molded our spirits and touched our hearts.
May the lighting of this candle be a reminder of the memories we have shared,
a representation of the everlasting impact you have made upon our lives.
They also suggested going to www.ultimateweddings.com but it is blocked from my work computer. (I think they have caught onto me!)

On this long storm the rainbow rose
BY Emily Dickinson
On this long storm the rainbow rose,
On this late morn the sun;
The clouds, like listless elephants,
Horizons straggled down.
The birds rose smiling in their nests,
The gales indeed were done;
Alas! how heedless were the eyes
On whom the summer shone!
The quiet nonchalance of death
No daybreak can bestir;
The slow archangel's syllables
Must awaken her.
He Bids His Beloved Be At Peace
BY William Butler Yeats
I HEAR the Shadowy Horses, their long manes a-shake,
Their hoofs heavy with tumult, their eyes glimmering white;
The North unfolds above them clinging, creeping night,
The East her hidden joy before the morning break,
The West weeps in pale dew and sighs passing away,
The South is pouring down roses of crimson fire:
O vanity of Sleep, Hope, Dream, endless Desire,
The Horses of Disaster plunge in the heavy clay:
Beloved, let your eyes half close, and your heart beat
Over my heart, and your hair fall over my breast,
Drowning love's lonely hour in deep twilight of rest,
And hiding their tossing manes and their tumultuous feet.

Are you getting married in the UK? Whereabouts, may I ask? I had heard the same things from some of my friends about the UK wedding websites but I've realized that happens when you put some women with other women, on the net or in person! Well welcome!
I own a lot of poetry books but I'm having trouble finding the right boxes... there was a contemporary female poet that is stashed somewhere who writes wonderfully about loss, in a poignant but not morbid way, I'm going to rummage about and see if I can find it tomorrow (I have the WORST memory for names and its been years) She calls the loss of her husband to cancer as her inspiration, its wonderful... let me look for it!
Some things sitting out on the table that come to mind:
Rumi's "Stay Close, My Heart" and "Ruby" are about people who bring out the best in you, at least in my opinion
One of my favorites has always been "Rubaiyat" by Omar Khayyam and I actually read quite a few passages for my best friend's memorial in college, which was perfect because he really focuses on how life is to be lived to the fullest so you will be well remembered and life will have been worth living.
Mary Oliver has some wonderful nature oriented poems that parallels the temporary/fleeting nature to that of life and she uses wonderful imagery
More wonderful poems are "Shifting the Sun" by Diana Der-Hovanessian, "Dirge without Music" by Edna St. Vincent Millay and "Let Evening Come" by Jane Kenyon, "From Blossoms" by Li-Young Lee... if you can't find these online or at your bookshop, let me know and I'll send the whole poem to you.
