๐Ÿ™ sorry to hear that. I don’t know your situation but I can see how this can bring up some uneasy feelings. Hang in there and focus on the positive things about the whole experience; they will be the ones you will remember most! <3

Wow. Obviously this is something you knew was going to happen, but I imagine it would have seemed “real” seeing it on paper, and having someone else aware of it. I hope you’re feeling better now ๐Ÿ™‚

๐Ÿ™  I don’t know the background, but I do feel your pain a bit. Due to my father’s health issues, I literally had Plan A, B, and C outlined for my wedding coordinator, based on if he was present/how much he could tolerate.  It was especially stressful since we weren’t close at all and I wasn’t particularly looking forward to things like the father/daughter dance.  He died two months before my wedding, and figuring out Plan D SUCKED.

Yeah I felt the same in the lead up to my wedding… filling in all the stuff minus dad was heart breaking and only seemed more cruel that it had to be done over and over again – venue, photog and celebrant. Knowing it and seeing it on paper it two different things ๐Ÿ™ 

Big hugs, it’ll still be a great day and your family will still be there in spirit

That said, getting it all on paper now is good.  At our rehearsal, the crazy church lady kept going around asking where the father of the bride was (even though I met with her a month before the wedding, and reminded her RIGHT BEFORE THE REHEARSAL…yeah, a year and a half later, it still makes my blood boil a little).  I really wish my sister had said, “At home, on the bookshelf” just for Crazy Church Lady’s reaction.

my situation is similar.  I know we told the venue months ago that i am an orphan bride, but i’m sure we’ll have to explain it all again.  we’re gonna do the best we can to be creative…no sides, maybe even mixing bridal party sides, other dances so FI’s parents get some tome with him but won’t leave me sitting alone.  plus our guests, friends, family know my situation and i’m sure they will step up to fill in those missing parts of my life.  i’ve had many offers for stand in father of the bride/aisle walk.  but Fiance is going to meet me half way…just as he always has.

 

i truly wish your heart will be filled by the loved ones you have there on your day!
