You don’t sound cheesy at all.  My step mother died very suddenly in April.  She married my Dad when I was only 13 so she was like a mother to me.  My Fiance parents are both gone.  We are having gas lights in the chapel lit in their honor and there will be a beautiful sign stating that fact.  She will see you get married, just know in your heart she is there with you.  I beileve there are windows in heaven.

I am so sorry for your loss.  She sounds like a wonderful woman who has a great deal to do with the kind of woman you are today. In you she lives on.

My aunt passed away 5 days before her sons wedding.  It was bittersweet, but they chose to honor her in a very special way during the reception.  I hope you can find a way to do the same.

I am so sorry for you loss. I lost my Grandmother in Febuary.

My mom and I dug out my Communion picture and framed that, and we are having  a pendant made with her name and picture on it for my boqute, that way she can walk down the isle with me.

@vmblai1019: Reading your post brought tears to my eyes. I lost my grandmother not too long ago and it was the most difficult thing I have ever had to go through. Your words about your grandmother are truly beautiful. I love your idea to create a memorial table. I have been thinking about doing that as well. One thing I am doing for sure is having an empty chair beside my mother during the ceremony (where she would be sitting if she were there), with a flower across it. I completely agree that your grandmother will be there in spirit, just like I have no doubt that mine will be with me on my wedding day.

My thoughts are with you during this difficult time.

My grandfather died two weeks ago of a heart attack and I got engaged this week (FI’s birthday, it had been planned by him for a while). I feel terriable that he didn’t get to see me get at least engaged. He knew it was close because Fiance talked to him as well as my parents for their blessing (my grandfather and grandmother live next door to us. We are very close.) I know what you are going through and I feel for you, girl~

I am so sorry for your loss.  My grandmother is terribly ill and I honestly don’t know if she’ll make it until next year.  She may still be alive, but could possibly be bed-ridden.  (hugs)

I am so, so sorry for your loss! 

I can only imagine what you’re going through- I only have one living grandparent left, and I was very, very close to my late grandmother, so it was sad that she passed before I was old enough to get married. 

Likewise, Darling Husband only has 2 grandparents left, and his grandfather was in the hospital the day of our wedding. Obviously not the same thing, b/c he’s still alive, but we were still sad that he wasn’t able to be there. 

I think that you should try to do something to honor/remember her at your wedding… have a special reading/prayer during the ceremony, pick a piece of her jewelry to wear for the wedding, or something. She’s obviously special to you, and she deserves to be remembered.
