My poor FI just broke his leg and tore out his tendons. Feel so sorry for him 🙁 Just wondering if someone could suggest how we can make the evening a pleasant one?
Did it at work yesterday. Weddings in 2 weeks.
Mother Son dance
Bouqet and garter toss
Any other suggestions greatly apprecaited.

@JaymeKae: I would suggest the following:
Grand enterance- Dressy Cane
First dance- Slow 2 Step
Mother Son dance 2 step
Cake cutting Cane
Bouqet and garter toss I think it would be a little laugh if you put a garter on his cast and take it off of him as well as him taking one off of you

I doubt that in 2 weeks his doctor will be letting him use a cane. You have to be able to weight bear to use a cane.
If he is on crutches, he will be competent in 2 weeks. The main thing is that he follow doctor’s instructions so he heals properly.
I doubt the will want to dance on crutches, but you could rent a wheelchair. You could get some great pics of him spinning you around seated on his lap.
Your photographer can plan his angles carefully so the crutches do not show. You can also do pics of him sitting on a rock wall etc.

Poor guy! I’m so sorry! My partner spent the whole week prior to our wedding in the ER everyday with intractable pain from kidney stones. She had surgery 4 days prior to our wedding. She looks pretty pale in our wedding pics but was ok. I would really recommend trying to dress up his crutches if you wish and most definately have a wheelchair on hand! Also, don’t forget to have his pain meds and a pillow or 2 on hand at the reception….he may just need them. Best wishes to you both!

I’m really sorry to hear this, and what crappy timing! I agree with what the other PPs said about strategic photos and possibly even renting a wheelchair. A cane definitely won’t be an option in 2 weeks.
I’m stuck at home right now with a broken ankle myself, and it’s been really frustrating and humbling. He’s going to be at a high risk for depression – do everything you can for him and TAKE HIM OUT of the house when you get home from work. 🙂
Maybe at the wedding you could arrange for him to have an extra chair to put his foot up on? Elevating it is key and it brought me a lot of relief during those first few weeks. Also, be careful when mixing his painkillers with alcohol at the reception!
