 I will miss my mom a lot.  Most days its not so bad but its the big events that get to you like graduation but the wedding is the ultimate big event.  I’m hoping I can get a good hard cry out early in the day and then maybe I can hold it together through the rest of it but even typing this gets me teary eyed.  I am lucky to have a lot of amazing women who have stepped up into a mom role to help out and give love and support.  I’m so gratful for that.
I will also miss my grandmother.  I really loved her and she would have been so amazing at weddings, she even used to make wedding cakes. 
There are others but those are my big two.

I will be missing my dad, its going to be a hard day without him, but i will have his side of the family there with me so im hoping that will help a little. Of course im a baby and cry over everything so I am going to have to have a moment to my self and get it all together so i wont be mopping around all day! 

I will also be missing my grandmother, she is greatly missed and its going to be hard not to have her there. She was a huge part of my life, i just wished she could be there to spend that special day with me! 

This is a good thread!!

i will miss my best friend.  she passed away last yer after a short three month battle with a rare cancer at the age of 35.  she was so excited for the possibility of me getting married. she loved my (then) boyfriend.  we got engaged about 6 months after she passed.  she would have most definitely been my Maid/Matron of Honor.  i still cannot believe she is gone.  she was truely like a sister and i still cannot come to terms with her being gone.  she left behind two beautiful daughters.

at the wedding, i am going to have  rememberance for her on a table.  including a mini bridesmaid bouquet – as she is an “hornorary bridesmaid”.

i will not be able to play a song or say anything in dedication to her at the wedding.  it will just be too hard.  i will be inviting her two daughters to the wedding. 

my mom really has been there for me through this loss and i have asked her to be my Maid/Matron of Honor.

i never thought i would lose my best friend so young.  we had so many fun plans for the future!  i miss her terribly ever single day!

This thread is making me cry! It is touching to hear how we will still include our loved ones, though.

I will miss my mom and my dad.

Even though my dad died when I was young, growing up, I still miss him. Even just seeing my friends’ dads walk them down the aisle, I still get choked up. My mom just passed away in December, and it’s harder because I know how excited she was for my wedding. My dad’s favorite butterfly was the monarch, and he used to point them out any time he saw one, so whenever I see one, I think of him, no matter where I am or what I’m doing. I am not having a theme or anything, but I am trying to figure out a way to include them in his memory. I’m still not sure what to do for my mom, though we will be including pierogies, I think, since she was very proudly of Slovak heritage, and we used to eat them for the important holidays.

i would have to say all my grandparents – especailly my grandma on my mom’s side – we were real close and she passed a few years ago. My other grandparents passed when i was younger – one a few months before i was born, another when i was 5 and another when i was 11.

I have found some beautiufl tributes in programs to grandparents – i think i will do this – I also have a table set up for photos of my parents and grandparents on both sides on their wedding day, as well as FI’s parents and his grandparents on both sides.

I’ll be missing my mom. I lost her just about a year ago, and we had a difficult relationship the past few years, but I had finally reached a point where I felt like we could start rebuilding. She passed away suddenly and it was a shock. 

 

I’ve even tried to convince Fiance to run away and elope with me. Wedding planning is hard without a mom.

I will be missing my dear friend Torie, who died in the post ALCS riot in Boston in 04. She would have been a bridesmaid for sure and it still hurts everyday.

I miss my grandmother who passed when I was 12. She was the kindest woman I have ever known.

I miss my grandfather who passed away right before my only child was born. He was the only positive male in my childhood.

I will be missing my dad who passed 19 years ago on 2/20.  While I have had a long time to cope with it, these special moments in life make me feel that loss more than any ordinary day.  I also lost my youngest brother 12/1/99.  Both have been gone a long time and I am pretty sure I can handle it, however my FIs Dad may die any moment now, and I am feeling a tremendous amount of loss for him and for my Fiance and his family.  Our wedding is this Saturday and its destination.  I know he won’t make it, because he has been too ill, and so was not planning on it, but now I am not sure he will even be alive for it.

Hey ladies. Reading everyone’s posts made me cry and I just feel for all of you and had to comment too. I will be missing my Grandad on my wedding day who passed away with cancer. He was such a kind gentleman and I miss him all the time.  I always wish he could have met my fiance because I know he would have loved him like I do. 

I also lost my Aunt Colleen to cancer and  wish she could still be here.  She was really sick when my fiance and I had just started dating and he never knew her.  I remember my brothers and cousin were teasing me about having a new boyfriend and she came to my rescue and said when she was younger she had a new boyfriend to coordinate with the sports seasons, a hockey player in the winter, etc… she was so happy and funny and she would definitely laugh knowing I am marrying the very guy she was defending. She was such a beautiful person..

Something I am going to do which I saw at another wedding is put a note in the program which says something about loved ones looking down on our special day from heaven and then my Grandad and Aunts names as well as my fiance’s grandparents who have passed.  It might not be for everyone but I think it is a sweet way to include them.

I’ll be missing my mom too. She passed away in 2007 from a rare neurological disorder. Dress shopping was really difficult. I know she would’ve had me put on the silliest, poofiest gown imaginable, and I missed having her there trying to talk me into it.

I never had a real father figure in my life, so we’re omitting the traditional aspects from the wedding like the giving away, the father/daughter dance.

I will be missing my gram. Our wedding package includes a cake from this one bakery and all I had to do was call and tell them which design we picked off their website. My gram decorated cakes and I always figured on her doing my wedding cake some day. I kept putting off calling our bakery because I wished she could be here to decorate our cake. I miss her so much but I know she will be there that day for sure looking down at her first grandaughter getting married
