Even though I am an older bride and this is not my first marriage, my fiance and I opted to have a semi formal wedding in our home for 50-60 people. 4 months to go and I have most of the large details covered, (cater, photographer, music etc) but it is in the small decisions when I miss my Mom the most. She passed 12 years ago but no one and I mean NO ONE can replace your Mom….

BEEelegant : Big hugs to you. Moms are the best and you are right, no one can take their place. Keep her close in your heart and in your spirit.

I feel you bee. I got married for the second time last year and even though my mom had been gone for 9 years at that point I still missed her like crazy. Sending you lots of hugs.

BEEelegant : I know nothing anyone will say will make you miss her less but I just wanted to give you a big squishy virtual hug x

I’m sorry. 🙁 My mom has been/is dealing with a plethora of health issues these past 6 years. I’m super glad she was feeling pretty good at our wedding, but seeing her hurting and dealing with everything from needing a hip replacement to Parkinson’s disease is really, really hard. I’m thankful every year that I get more time with her, but it’s so hard seeing her health going downhill so rapidly. Thinking about you.

BEEelegant : Big hugs to you, bee. I believe that we never truly lose the ones we love. We just carry them in our hearts with us. My grandmother passed just 1 month before my wedding and I felt her with me the entire day. We did a memorial chair in her honor with a beautiful photo, and flowers. And I knew she would have loved every minute of it.
Your mom will be with you too. <3

BEEelegant : I’m missing my mom too. She passed away about a year and a half ago and I’m expecting my first child (and would be her first grandchild) in a couple of months. You are right, no one can replace your mom. No matter what the milestone is, there is that emptiness that nothing can fill.
I feel for you and feel your pain.

I’m so sorry for your loss, and you’re right, you only get one mom!
Is there something you plan on doing to honor her at your wedding?

I am so sorry, bee. 😢 There’s just nobody like a Mom. Is there a way that she can still be a big part of your wedding? Maybe have a seat for her, or wear something of hers down the aisle, or maybe put her favorite flower in your bouqet etc?
I know this must be hard, I’m sorry I can’t give much advice. I just truly believe that our Moms will always be with us, even after they pass on, and she would be so happy to see you walk down the aisle joyous and in love.

BEEelegant : I’m so sorry you can’t share this experience with your mom. Try to think of a special way to carry her with you on your wedding day with a piece of jewelry or locket on your bouquet or a song for her. I’m completely a momma’s girl so I can’t imagine the loss you’re feeling right now. 🙁
