My grandma passed away last night:( She has been ill for a while and it’s better for her that she’s not in pain anymore but I’m feeling down. My wedding is in 2 1/2 weeks and I’m so sad she won’t be able to see it.
I’m so worried that my mom will be overwhelmed now and that she’ll feel the need to “fake it” for our wedding.
Not a great day:(

I am so sorry. It will be a bittersweet day. As you said she has been ill and maybe she wouldnt have been able to be there for your wedding, but now you know she will be there in spirit.
Your mom and yourself and family will certainly wish she could have been there, and there will be some sadness, but there will also be lots of happiness because you will be celebrating the start of a new life for you and celebrating the one that she has lived.

I’m sorry for your loss! What unfortunate timing…I’m sure she will be with you on your day in spirit.
Your mom will most likely have both joyous and sad feelings that day all at once, which is natural…but I’m sure the happiness of that day won’t be totally erased for her.

I’m so sorry for your loss. My grandfather passed away this summer 6 days before my cousin’s wedding. It was a bittersweet time, but we were able to celebrate his life at his services, and the wedding went on as normal. Yes, it was a little difficult for my grandmother, but everyone was happy to celebrate my cousin’s wedding and knew that my grandfather was there in spirit. I’ll be thinking of you, but things will get better! Look back on the happy times.

I’m so sorry for your loss! My grandma passed away 3 weeks ago, and we were very close. I am going to have an empty chair for her with a flower across it, right beside my mom (where she would be sitting if she was still with us), just as a reminder that she will be watching down on us. Just remember that she will be there in spirit. *Hugs*

Thanks everyone! Your kind words are SO appreciated:)
@FutureMrsTimmins I love the idea- I think that would be a nice touch and I’m sure my mom would like to think of her sitting beside her.

It sucks… there is no better way to say it. I lost my mother exactly 2 weeks to the day before our wedding. On top of my mother passing away (which was horrible for my entire family) my father then threw a fit in the middle of our reception becuase my mom had never mentioned to him that we had planned a dance for my fmil and ffil as our wedding day was their 28th wedding anniversary… he left the reception with me in tears and despite his brother and myself chasing him and begging him to come back he wouldn’t… my best advice: don’t let other people rain on your day. I know your grandmother didnt do this on purpose, but if others in your family are having a hard time, keepo in mind that is why they are behaving that way. Also- I am convinced that my mother was with me on my wedding day. if you step back and relax (DON’T SWEAT THE SMALL STUFF) you will see the signs that she is there!!! I did still have my florist make my moms corsage as planned and had it placed at her seat next to my dad for the reception. Unfortunately someone took it before I could get it at the end of the reception, but I had planned to press it and keep it in my photo album dedicated to my mom.

Sorry for your loss. You can never be prepared for the loss of a loved one.
Keep her in your mind and prayers on your big day. She’ll be there.
