- Wedding: July 2011
My fiance and I are getting married in July. He has one sister who is 28 and suffers from ALS. She was diagonsed in 2008 and over time her condition worsened to the point where her she ended up in a wheelchair and on December 31st she was put on a ventilator. She is still in the hospital right now and her husband is getting ready to bring her home as soon he and my FMIL can learn to care for her added needs.
My fiancee and I intially didn’t plan on having her involved in the wedding in any way becaue of her condition. On Wednesday my fiancee and I both took the day off from work to stay with her in the hospital. She is a bit depressed and recovering from a trachestomy has been hard for her because she can mouthe words and can’t talk at this point. She asked us about how the wedding planning was coming along. We told her and showed her some pics from my phone of my dress, centerpieces and some stuff we picked out and it seemed to cheer her up a bit.
I’m now thinking about letting her and my FMIL to come to my wedding morning brunch and allowing her to be with me and the bridal party we are getting ready. I know many people have said those events should just be for the MOG, bride and bridal party. I want my FMIL and FSIL to feel part of the event and not execluded because of FSIL’s needs. Would it be ok to open the brunch and getting ready event to them?
