I am getting married in a month.
2 months ago, my bridesmaid’s mother passed away, and she is–naturally–beside herself with grief.
My other bridesmaid’s husband lost his job.
I was let go 2 weeks ago.
Then I found out that my best friend died today.
I am emotionally exhausted and feel like I can’t get through this next month by myself, with all that I need to do. Any advice from brides that have been through a shitstorm leading up to their wedding? Any tips for putting on a smile?

Holy crap! That’s alot to take in. I didn’t have this all going on when I got married, but when my younger brother got married, it was 3 weeks after our older brother died. It was hard and my brother thought about postponing it. He talked to my Dad and one of my Aunts. He decided that it would be great to see the same people he saw in the begining of August under horrific circumstances, at the end of the month to celebrate an amazing step in his life. It was a good call. Look at the wedding as a time to celebrate the next step in your life, your friends will be there, in mind and body.

That is a lot to deal with all at once. So sorry to hear that all of that happened to you and your friends. Maybe it would help to try to think of the wedding as a chance to give everyone who is sad and hurting right now a break from the sadness. I’m sure you will have a beautiful, fun, and happy wedding, and it sounds like there is definitely a need for some happiness right now.
