I recently got married and it was a breath takingly amazing day – my guests all say that had a wonderful time and everyone was soooo happy….this i could not be more thankful for…as well i had an amazing time marrying the man of my dreams.
But i cant help but associate an awful tragedy with this special day…
My Husbands cousin (second), his wife passed away on the way home from our wedding – its so awful….she was just a wonderful person and mother and she told her husband that night she is having the time of her life…she was very young and what a tragedy and i have mixed emotions….i feel so awful that this happened on our wedding evening but also i feel glad to be the one to bring them together with her family that night to enjoy eachother.
God Bless her.
I just needed to vent a bit because i think about it every time i think about my wedding….my heart aches for her husband and children

OMG, I’m so sorry. I don’t know what to say.
Was it an car accident? Or was there a medical reason that caused it? Was it alcohol related?
If it wasn’t, could to convince yourself that it could have happened on any day and it just so happened on your wedding night. And that it’s wasn’t your fault. It’s very unfortunate and I’m so sorry.

I know it wasnt our fault – not food allergy or alcolhol related – it was due to chocking on stomach contents that happen to go into her lungs during a burp like reflux….doctors said it just happens no preventing and no way to really know….he said even if she was beside the hospital it sill would have taken then too long to open her airway….as they were blocked with contents and the throat closes during these types of incidences….its a sad memory for us

this is so awful, i’m so sorry.
it reminds me of an article i read awhile ago. the bridal party limo carrying bride, bms, groom, and gms got into a terrible accident on the way to the ceremony. the suv limo flipped over and most of the party was injured. sadly, one gm died at the scene. the entire party went to the hospital, and they had the ceremony there, bloody clothes and all. the bride and groom decided that they wanted to keep the spirit of the day, because that’s what the gm would have wanted. i wish i still had the link, because i know the bride and groom put the reason for having the ceremony beautifully and i can’t remember exactly what they said.

@penniepie: I’m SO sorry. I wish I could reach out and give you a big hug.
Take comfort in the fact that her last night was surrounded by loved ones and she was happy and content. It sounds like it was a freak accident, and there was nothing anyone could do. I can imagine how much you’re hurting for her husband and children. That’s so sad 🙁
@kitzy: I remember that. I was thinking of that as well when I read this.
