I’m sorry for your loss.  Honestly, my advice is to stop worrying about a wedding 10 months in the future and focus on grieving your loss.  You don’t need to decide right now how you’ll incorporate him in the wedding – you have nearly a year to figure that out.  It sounds like his passing was rather sudden and unexpected, which makes loss even harder.  Focus on yourself right now, and worry about the wedding later.

 annann91 :  My condolences to you and your family. From what you posted, it seems that your father was very happy in his farm, tending to his fruit trees.

With that in mind, I would suggest that for your wedding ceremony you incorporate your father’s farm’s fruits into the flower arrangements, and leaves from those trees in your bouquet. For your reception, you could also see if it would be possible to serve a dessert that would have those fruits as an ingredient. 

As for who would walk with you down the aisle, it would be lovely to have your mother do it.

I hope that in these months prior to your wedding you and your family will find solace.
