My fiance (now husband) and I had been together for 7 years before we finally decided to just get married. We announced our date in November 2014 and the planning began! Things were going great and everyone was getting excited - especially my dad. He would finally be able to walk one of his daughters down the aisle - something he had always dreamed of doing. Down to about two months to go and then my father passed away suddenly and unexpectedly. It was definitely the worst day of my life. It was a rough couple months after that but we somehow managed to pull it off. The ceremony was beautiful and the reception was a lot of fun! The flowers were beautiful and not having to mess with a florist and making arrangements made it a lot easier to focus on other things. We each attached a picture of my dad to our bouquets so that he could be there with us and the beautiful flowers made it that much more special.
