My youngest sister has passed...I want to cancel ceremony
Posted 03 October 2008 - 12:05 PM
On tuesday (9/30) my youngest sister died unexpectedly. My family and I are in such a shock that it is becoming hard for me to function. I don't even look forward to our ceremony in Jamaica in nearly 2 months. I had so much planned for the wedding and I just want to cancel it all.

I can understand why you would want to cancel your wedding. If it's better for you and your fi, then cancel it. I'm sure your guests would understand completely. But maybe you should wait a couple of weeks before making a final decision.

I think that your sister would not want you to cancel your joyous occassion but celebrate the joining of two souls. What if you had a moment of silence for her or a prayer for her. I dont think your sister would want you to lose the money that you put into the planning and preparing for you wedding. Include her.

That is the toughest, most unfortunate turn of events Indigo. I am sooo sorry to hear of your loss! I could not even imagine. Right now, the last thing you need to feel is stress and pressure. You have not have the chance to even try and internalize the situation to know what it is you want to do next and you can't put a time stamp on a situation like this.
Please take time to breathe, TALK it out if you are up to it and if spiritual pray for guidance. You will know what to do based on what your heart tells you and also what the spirit of your sister wil guide you to do. I know she would want the best for you.
I will keep you in my prayers. I am so touched!

My mother passed away about a month before my older sister's wedding. My sister decided to move along with the wedding (it was also a destination wedding - though in the states, Aspen CO.).
It actually helped us all out I think. Gave us something really happy to think about in a time of extreme sadness. However, everyone is definitely unique and only you and your family know what's best...
If you do go ahead with it, I'm sure your sister will be looking down at you with gracious blessings... best wishes...

We had 24 people attend our wedding in Las Caletas, Mexico on May 24th, 2009!
We all stayed at The Marriott in P.V., and Honeymooned at The Royal Plantation in Ochos Rios, Jamaica!
