I am so sorry for your losses. Losing both your Mom and Dad at your age and within such a short time frame must be incredibly painful.

I am so sorry for your loss 🙁  I could not imagine! I think about this every day, my mom is ill, my Fiance mom has lung cancer, his dad is ill…were both 27.  Its very sad.

I have not lost anyone close.  So I dont know if my words will mean anything, but do you think that they would want you to carry on with the wedding any way?  I bet they would!  They will be there every step of the way, and especially on your big day.  Take it easy, and enjoy the planning and wedding through memories.  Those special moments and things your dad planned will be even more special now.

I am so, so sorry for your loss. I can’t imagine what you must be going through right now.

I agree that they would want you to carry on anyway, but they would also understand if its too hard to do that right now. I think you need some time for yourself, without all the pressures of wedding planning. Take a break from planning if you can, I know the holidays can be an especially difficult time for this. Talk to your Fiance about your concerns. He’ll understand. Marriage is all about supporting each other in times like this.

Again, I just want to say how sorry I am. My thoughts are with you.

I am so very sorry for your loss.  I am 27 and lost my mother to suicide this January.  I just got married in October, and I thought going through with the wedding would be more difficult than it was. 

Sometimes, when life hits you hard, the thing you need the most is something that reminds you that life does go on (because I know what it feels like to just want to stay in bed and never move forward).  I hope your wedding is absolutely everything you dream it to be!
