i’m so sorry about your mom, and the rest of your family. Thats so sad 🙁 Did this happen recently? Perhaps it might be easier to take a step back from all the wedding stuff for a little while… Do you have any other family or good friends you can ask to sort of fill that role?

My mother died when I was about 3 years old, so I’ve always known I wouldn’t have a mother there with me when i got married. Luckily for me i have an older sister who has always sort of acted like a mother to me, and my fiance’s mother is super sweet.

I’m really sorry about your loss. I got engaged 4/11/10 and my mom died 4/25/10 of an aneurysm. It was devastating. I don’t have any siblings and lost my grandma a few years ago. I do have an aunt who is supportive, but it is still very hard knowing my mom isn’t here. We donated some of my mother’s organs when she died and received a medal and a small pin in her honor for her donation. I am wearing the pin on my wedding dress. We also plan to have a memorial at the wedding for her and my grandma. Maybe there is something of your mom’s you can use/wear on your wedding day to help remember her. I know you will have a beautiful wedding, and I’m sure they would want it to be one of the best days of your life!!
