I’d love to know this too. Dress shopping was hard enough. :/

My mom passed away almost 15 years ago from cancer…

The way I got through it was to have my daughter and my sister help me along the way. I won’t lie, it is tough, but the day goes by so fast that you probably won’t have a lot of time for tears. I did incorporate my mom into the ceremony and the reception though; subtley because I didn’t want anyone to get all teary eyed about missiing mom and take away from the happiness of our union as husband and wife. I put a special poem just for her in our programs and her favorite all time movie was Gone With the Wind, so I had Tara’s Theme played for our recessional and I had the words to Tara’s Theme listed in our program. Also, instead of specific colors for our wedding, I had a color pallette, so I was able to incorporate her favorite color and flower into the reception by making my own napkins with a little bit of yellow and some roses mixed in. My bouquet and the girls bouquets were also roses. I know she was watching over us and I know she was happy. I can’t explain why; I just know. It really helped me get through the day, just knowing that I had incorporated some of her favorite things into the ceremony and reception. She would have also loved my gown because it was very Gone With the Windish 🙂
