My mom passed away from cancer when I was 19 years old. 8 years later it’s still hard and now with meeting the man of my dreams and planning my wedding it’s even more hard. I wish I could have gone dress shopping with her and I know she’d be helping me with all my DIY projects. I really can’t even think about her not being here too much before I start crying. And I have no idea how I’m going to handle the actual wedding day without her!
Any other bees out there planning their special day without their mom? Or have any of you gone through the day without your mom there? How’d you get through it? I know it’s a day of celebrating and about me and my fiance and he’s wonderful and always supportive. It’s just that my mom and I were very close and it’s so hard not having her here for all this.

I’m so sorry, my heart goes out to you. My fiance lost his mother to cancer, and he sometimes gets very sad about her not being here for the big day. He was closer to his mom than anyone else. He gets bouts of sadness here and there, but he is mostly excited about getting married and is becoming more involved with others in his family
I know it’s not the same thing, but I am considering moving away from my family in order to get a job, and I’m feeling kind of down about not doing things like dress shopping and planning with my mom and sister.
I’m sorry I don’t have good advice, but do you have other family members (father/sibling/aunt) that you could lean on? It’s okay to be sad, but remember that you are marrying the man of your dreams and that once the stress of planning your big day is over, you will be a happily married woman! All my best to you~hugs~
