- Wedding: March 2012
So, my Mother passed away last year. It was very hard on me. My Dad is around, but never had a hand in raising me (my parents divorced when I was little). He has made significant effort over the past 10 years to make up for that, and we are very close. I def plan on him walking me down the aisle, but I was always wanted both parents to do it since my Mom meant a lot to me. Since she is gone, I was planning on having my Aunt, her sister, stand in her place. Not to take her place, since no one can ever replace her, but really as a tribute to her. Kind of like a representative 😉 Also, my Aunt has helped me tremendously with this wedding, even with paying for it, so I feel like I should include her too. My Aunt doesn’t feel like she would be taking the place of my Mom. My Aunt has already bought a frame to put a picture of my Mom in and a memorial candle, so she will be thinking about her the whole time, as I am sure we all will. My Grandma thinks that might be a little weird since she is not my Mom. Anyone else think so? Thanks!
