Oh my god, I’m so sorry. I couldn’t imagine going through what you had to deal with. I agree with your husband, you deserve to have the wedding of your dreams.

I know it’s a long shot but I have heard of vendors donating (or discounting) their services to couples under unique circumstances. We have a wedding center local to us. They partner with a bunch of vendors (everything you’d need to have a wedding) and offer discounts for couples who book multiple vendors through them. They’ve been known to work with couples under extreme circumstances and give them the weddings of their dreams for either free or at low cost. If you have something like this local to you, it may be worth shooting them an email and explaining your situation. I’d be surprised if you don’t atleast get some discounts thrown your way.

I am so incredibly sorry for your and your DH’s loss, and that the timing was such to make your wedding day so sad…

CaitMarae makes a good point, maybe after some time passes you can look into getting discounts for another reception.

You absolutely deserved to have a happy wedding day after all the thought and time and money you invested…I hope that you can make up for that loss with another reception and a long happy life with your husband.

I believe you can have a reception or vow renewal of your dreams at some point.

I’m so sorry this happened to you. I can sympothize completely. My father just passed away this week, also from Leukemia. My wedding is not for another 9 months, but it is going to be very hard not having him there. I wish I had words to make it better, but we both no there aren’t any. I’m so sorry you had to miss your reception. I will be praying for you and your husband and his family. Feel free to message me if you ever need to talk/vent/scream/cry.

I’m so sorry for your loss. In a way it really is a double loss. You lost your Father-In-Law and you lost the wedding that you put so much time and love into. I definitely think you two should have that nice reception in the future.

I agree and add my condolences to the other hive members posts. I am so sorry for your loss. You should celebrate your marriage in the future, and maybe then you can honor your Father-In-Law at the reception. Again, my thoughts and prayers are with you and your husband.
