  • Wedding: July 2015 - Calamigos Ranch

I feel your pain. I lost my grandfather and sister in law and then my fiance lost his grandma and uncle. All right around our engagement time and the beginning of planning. I think the best way to get through it is to remember that you’ve made the commitment to spend the rest of your lives together. Life is full of pain, happiness, anxiety, peace and all kinds of emotions. So despite how bad it seems right now, you’ll get through it and it’ll make you stronger as a couple and as individuals. Hang in there! And try not to feel guilty! I’m sure even the sick family members want you to enjoy this special time. 🙂

  • Wedding: September 2014

At this point it would likely be difficult to postpone the wedding. There is not always a good time for a wedding, just like anything else. If people are unable to attend there is not much that can be done about it. My FI’s dad and wife will not be able to come to the wedding overseas. It is what it is. We will miss them, but the wedding must go on. If your FI is very busy with work, and the stress of family issues, then you will have to pick up the slack and do most things on your own. It will be fine. If he is too exhausted to participate, try to be understanding. You have nothing to feel guilty about with the wedding. I lost my aunt a few months ago. Life is full of varying bumps in the road. You did not plan it hoping that issues would arise, they just happened. I said a prayer for you, your FI, and his family. Best of luck to you both!
