thegingerbride: I am very sorry you are in this situation. I also lost my mom as a teenager. In fact, both of my parents had passed by the time of my wedding.

I had a good friend who stepped in and helped with the planning.

thegingerbride:  I’m sorry to hear of your losses. Like jwcw21 I hope you feel your Fiance is giving you enough support.

It’s been a hard process for me too. My mum passed away about 4 and a half years ago, before I met my Fiance. After we got engaged it really hit me hard because I knew she would have been so excited at the news and to meet and get to know him.

For me, choosing a dress has been the most difficult part so far because ever since I was little my mum and I had always planned that she would make my wedding dress. Because of that I couldn’t face the usual trips to visit bridal shops and ended up getting something online from preownedweddingdresses.com (I love my dress though, so there are no regrets there).

I’m DIYing a lot of the decor and my mum was very crafty so I feel like I’ve been honoring her memory with every little thing I create. It’s been quite cathartic working on the projects.

Being open and letting Fiance know how I’m feeling about missing my mum along the way has been important, he’s been a great support and encouragement.

We’re not planning on having an empty chair at the wedding or a photo table of loved ones who have passed but I have seen this picture which I think I might ask my photographer if we can do something similar as a way to remember my mum:


I hope you and your mum’s friend can get back in touch and do more together as your wedding approaches.
