Today is the 3rd anniversary of my father’s death. He passed away unexpectedly.
I have 51 days to go until my wedding. I can’t help but think about him and wonder if he would have gotten along well with my future husband and what his involvement in the wedding would be.
I know he would be thrilled with my upcoming nuptials and proud of the woman I have become and all that I have accomplished since his passing.

@ajillity81: My condolences to you. I lost my father 6 months and four days ago and I miss him every day.
I am happy for you that you are able to remember him fondly and you are certainly right that he would be proud of you! I’m sure he would have loved your fiance since you love him so much. Congratulations on your upcoming wedding and I hope you will be surrounded by loving family to help you celebrate this event. Your father will be there in spirit! 🙂

@ajillity81: My condolences to you on the loss of your father. I also know how hard this can be – I lost my dad this past January after a brief illness. All I think about is how he won’t be there to walk me down the aisle or see me on my wedding day. My sister bought a locket and put his photo in it to wrap around my bouquet for the big day so that he WILL be there to walk me down the aisle. 🙂 This made me feel happy and might be something you could do to have him there with you in spirit.

That is so sweet of your sister! I will be carrying a pinch of my dad’s ashes with my bouquet.

I’m really sorry about your father. My dad’s third anniversary will come up before my wedding too. We’re actually getting married on his birthday. Everyone always says, “He’ll be there in spirit”…and as much as I want to believe that…it’s just not the same as him being there in person.
But I guess we have to believe that our fathers will be there watching us. And we have to believe they are proud. Best wishes to you.

I’m so sorry you lost your father too 🙁 I lost mine a year and a half ago. I’m going to be a mess during certain parts of the wedding. One way I’m keeping him close, is by wearing a locket ring with his picture inside, that I can look at whenever I like. I got it off etsy. I’m also mentioning him in the ceremony, and in my speech.

I know how you feel. My dad couldn’t be at my wedding from having passed 11 years ago, but you learn to just go on and enjoy your day as best as you can.

I also know how you feel, it will be the first anniversary of my father’s death on the 12th, 3 days after my birthday 🙁 My mum doesn’t like talking about how the wedding will be next year and i’m sure there will be ALOT of crying but we will be having some photos of him at the reception.
