Wow. I have not been in that situation but it cannot be easy.  I’m sure his dad would have wanted you two to have a wonderful wedding though, so i hope you try to have an amazing day anyways.  Is there anyway you can honour his memory at your wedding?

Yes, and our dates are basically the same. My grandfather passed away on November 1st of 2011. Almost exactly 4 months before our wedding. He was the most excited person for us to be getting married and pestered Fiance for years about a proposal! He was the only man in my life that was there for everything, he was like my rock – I am not that close to my dad or my step-dad. I cried like a baby when I had to erase him from our guestlist.

The thing that has been the most helpful, and has made me smile through my tears, is this. I think it was another bee actually that said it: “He’ll have the best seat in the house.” It will definitely make our wedding different, but at the same time, grief is a part of life, and life goes on. We’re honoring all of our missing relatives on our program. I am tying the sixpence he gave me to my bouquet. Small ways to honor them without it becoming overwhelming.

I’ve also been the SO in this situation, though it wasn’t our wedding. FI’s grandfather passed away Christmas 2009. It’s forever tinged that holiday and it’s tough. You’ll know what to do when the time comes. 🙂

Good luck Xx
