  • Wedding: June 2012

@kelly052:  First off *HUGS* I know it’s hard. I know you’re probably thinking of every worst case scenario, but try to remember that things have a way of working out. I can only tell you what I did in a similar situation. My mom was put into hospice in last June (5 months before my wedding) and passed away from stage four colon cancer 2.5 months before mine. On a whim- my Darling Husband and I decided to have a legal ceremony with just my Mom, dad, and Darling Husband in my family’s back yard at the end of June so she could be there for sure. Without the stress, without having her run around for pictures- and it gave her such a sense of relief that she got to see me get married- but was STILL determined to make it to my Nov wedding (ignore my acct. info wedding date). This worked for us, we were in a similar situation and though it was a sad circumstance we still had a beautiful day and it really meant the world that my mom could be there. On my actual wedding day I felt like my mom, dad, Darling Husband and I had this fun little secret (we didn’t tell anyone) and even though she could only attend in spirit- we got through it. I wouldn’t postpone or cancel. Trust that things will work out. Again, I am so sorry about your mother’s illness.
