I am four days from my wedding, and my grandfather passed away today. It wasn’t unexpected, as he’s been in poor health and living in a nursing home, but the impact is deep. I am upset, sad, feeling the loss – and worrying about everything we have to do to complete our wedding preparations in the next three days. I am concerned about how my grandmother and mother are doing emotionally, and thinking about the soonest I can possibly get to Pennsylvania, where my mother’s side of the family is from. I don’t know how to handle this magnitude of stress and grief. How do I enjoy my wedding day? How do I grieve through the stress? What do I do? I need advice, ladies. Thanks.

I don’t really have advice either, just wanted you to know another fellow Bee has read this and is thinking of you and your family. *hugs* Maybe you could incorporate him in the wedding in some way?

@redhead87:I am so sorry for your loss! Here’s what I believe and maybe that will help you….Your grandfather is in a wonderful place and will be at your wedding…I have no doubt! Also, he does not want you to feel sad nor does he want this to take away from your joy. Beginnings and endings, they go hand in hand. Breathe deeply, and remember that your grandfather will be with you every step of the way.
Also, if you need some anti anxiety/stress relief, check out Dr. Bach’s Rescue Remedy http://www.rescueremedy.com….it‘s amazing!
Love to you!
