I’m very sorry.  This is difficult.  But carrying on is good.  My mom died one month before my daughter’s wedding.  It was bittersweet for me in some ways, but it was good to have family surrounding us on the day.  Yuur grandfather would not want you to postpone it.

I’m so sorry you lost your grandpa. I’m happy though, that you were able to spend some time with him.

I know you were looking forward to wedding projects and giddy feelings, and now they are overshadowed by your grief. With time, you will begin to heal and I don’t think you will regret going through with your wedding.

You will never forget your grandpa – so just keep that in your heart and continue to live your life with your soon-to-be husband.

@lovekiss: I’m so sorry for your loss. I know what you’re going through, DH’s Grandfather passed away a couple of days before our wedding, we spent the day of our rehersal at his funeral and burial. It does get easier, and your wedding will be a happy distraction for your family during the grieving process. We honoured his Grandfather with a toast at our wedding, maybe you could to the same.

Very sorry to hear this. Yes, continue with your wedding dear.  Its very hard to loose a grandparent in general, esp if you are close, and it may seem hard. BUT, you know that he would want you to be enjoying your wedding, rather than causing your self more headache. It will be VERY difficult, but you can do it. Have the pastor say something about him., let your self cry. and remember the good things about him!!!

God bless and hope it all goes well!!

I am really sorry you are going through this. My really good friend went through the same thing and they ended up losing a lot of money by postponing it but she was so happy she did. Her fam had told her thry would not go and her brother ended up passing away the day she would have been wed at the ceremony time. I again am very very sorry you are going through this.

I am so sorry you are going through this.  Absolutely still have the wedding, he would want you to.  I agree with PP suggesting some sort of ceremony in front of him, at least visiting him together so he knows/remembers about your upcoming marriage and happiness.
