- Wedding: October 2012
I am SO sorry.:(. I know exactly how you feel. I’m getting married in Massachusetts and, aside from my Godparents and some friends back home (Puerto Rico) who are like family, I will have no relatives here (my dad is suffering from a form of dementia and my mother has to care for him so I completely understand). I do have a BFF here who I have known since highschool and I introduced her to her current husband. We have been BFFs for about 14 years and she called me last night crying because she is 3 months pregnant and her due date is about a week before my wedding so she can’t be in it. She doesn’t even know if she can make it due to, well, who knows what can happen during a pregnancy. We both cried our eyes out. Of course I understand why she might not be able to make it and I am so incredibly happy for her and her hubby. But it breaks my heart to think of my bff not being there on such an important day. I feel your pain! But as many people have said, she will be there with you in spirit <3. I’m trying to find something I can do to make her a part of it still. Maybe a photo, or perhaps my “something borrowed” be something of hers.
