Ok, not my blodded sister. we’ve been friends for 22 years (I’ll be 27 soon).
But she has a rare not deadly, but very painful brain disorder (arnold chiari malformation) and had to cancel her upcoming wedding because of it. Now she is doing a court house wedding and her family pretty much bailed on her.
So, what kind of gift should I get them? I’m going to pretend it’s just like her big dream wedding and nothing’s changed except the venue. I know she wanted the big wedding, but she’s just can’t physically handle all that time a traditional wedding takes.
So what should I do to help make it the happiest day of her life?

@HelleCat: I say get her an awesome gift and fuss over her a lot. Hey, what woman doesn’t like a little extra attention.

Would organising some pampering treats the week running up to the wedding be in your budget? Every bride needs/would love a manicure, massage, facial etc before the big day. Also she may appreciate if you try to incorporate something traditional i.e. the Something old, something new, something borrowed, something blue.
She’s lucky to have a friend like you on her side. I hope she has a wonderful day.

@Cariad: She was a fashion model before her symptoms started getting really bad, I bet I could work it out through her friends list to do something like that, what with all her cosmotology friends.
Thats a great idea!

@HelleCat: just a thought, although of course I dont know her and you do but maybe she wants to do something just with you, seeing as her condition makes her very tired, having too many people might tire her out too much. Also she might not want to tell other people just yet, just my inital thoughts when I read your post. But doing something together like a facial would be fun to do.

Oh yes, it would only be little things. Done at my house/ their house (am asking her fiance before I do anything).
