I will be having my wedding without my father, so I understand how you feel about someone very dear to you not being present. I was always afraid to get married because I knew that one of the people I wanted there the most, wouldn’t be there. I’ve spent some nights, when I was all alone and trying to busy myself with wedding planning, in tears. I’ve often wondered if I’m really going to be able to do this without my dad.

I felt the same way about my high school graduation. I didn’t want to take part in it because it didn’t feel as special without him.

I’m sure that I am going to absolutely bawl my eyes out at the wedding, seeing that empty seat where my dad should be sitting after he gives me away. I’m almost in tears just thinking about how, despite the happiness of the occasion, there will still be a little bit of emptiness there.

All I know is that, I am his child, so I am a part of him, just like he is a part of me, and he will be there with me anyway. Just like Dana will be there with you because he was a part of your family.

I know, it sounds really cliche, but that’s really the only thing that’s been getting me through all of this wedding stuff.

I’m sorry for your loss. It is definitely hard to have to deal with grief from a loved one passing. My best friends father passed away months before her destination wedding, but they did a nice tribute to him.
