- Wedding: May 2016 - Stone Garden Events
My grandmother just passed away last night. It was rather sudden because she was seemingly fine last week, but ended up in ICU last weekend. It has been a whirlwind of tears, family, and hours and days at the hospital waiting room. Last night I came home to my fiancé and started sobbing. I’m numb this morning.
Today also happens to be exactly one year away from my wedding. I am getting married May 14 2016. I’m afraid it’s going to be difficult to be happy that day, knowing it’s the anniversary of her passing. I want to talk about it with my family, but it will seem selfish to even worry about something like that…in the scope of things, the loss of my grandmother seems bigger than a wedding.

I’m so sorry for your loss. You and your family are in my prayers. As far as your wedding day, I would definitely do something special to remember her that day. But don’t let her passing make you sad on your big day. She would want you to be happy. I’m sure she would want you to remember all the good memories you have of her, and not to mourn her loss forever. It takes time to heal from the loss of a loved one; but remember that she will always be in your heart.

I’m sorry you lost someone so special to you. My grandmother passed away almost two years ago and I still think of her often. As for your wedding, take it as an opportunity to do something special on that day that makes you feel close to her. You’re not being selfish at all to have that thought. Just grieve now and see where you are emotionally in a year. A lot can change and even though you will always miss her, the pain won’t be as stark as it is right now.

It is hard to lose anyone special, and I’m so sorry. And I know it seems like you’ll never be able to get through that day without being sad, but its all about perspective….and it will only be tragic if you allow it to be.
Take the time to get through this sad time, and then find some special way to have her with you on that day. A necklace, a hankercheif, maybe a photo of her in a locket you tuck in your bouquet. She may not be there the way you wanted her to be, but she’ll be there the way you need her to.

Oh, honey, I’m so sorry for your loss. We lost my grandma at this time of year two years ago and I still miss her with a horrible ache every day. It doesn’t really go away.
It could be so healing to have something joyful like a wedding sharing this date, and I am sure your grandma was so happy for you and will be there in spirit, in your heart. Give yourself time to grieve.
