My sister-in-law (brother's wife) was doing our wedding flowers. Now, due to a family tragedy, she is no longer able to do so. My heart is breaking for my brother and her, so I'm just so upset about that.
On top of that, I have about 40 days to the wedding, no flower budget, and I need to come up with a new plan.
If that isn't stressful enough, due to this tragic incident, my own brother may not be able to be at the wedding (he's a groomsman) or his family. This is upsetting because of the tragic incident, my brother possibly not attending my wedding, and we are also stressed about meeting the minimum headcount and if their family can't make it, that is 8 people who would not be able to attend.
It's just layers upon layers of awfulness, and I'm just having a hard time coping with it all. The worst is obviously what my brother and his family are going through, and it's just so hard to be excited about my wedding when such a horrible event has befallen people that I love dearly.
Sam's Club and Costco have some decent looking bouquets and it appears you don't need to order them that far in advance. I just don't know if you have to be a club member.
I don't know if I'm really looking for solutions or I just needed to vent or what. I'm just having a really hard time right now 😞
I'm sorry for all the ups and downs and the fact they feel like they're adding on. TAKE A BREATHER. Sometimes we forget to take moments for ourselves to compose ourselves. Flowers - if you're looking for it in terms or centerpieces you can even do fake ones. Craft stores always sell them in bouquets for cheap. Or what's even easier is going to trader Joe's or something like it and buying already potted plants like orchids tend to be in nice pots already You can even go with decor that aren't flowers! Take this as your chance to think of something different more unique or cheaper, even. Remember, take any moment you need to to collect yourself.
I’m so sorry for you and your family and all of the stress everyone is going through. Hopefully you can take some time for yourself to get back into a positive state of mind. Sending you great vibes that the floral situation works out the way you want darlin
Thank you for all your support. A family friend is helping us out with flowers. Unfortunately, the family tragedy is still ever present, but there isn't anything that can change that situation. I just wanted to update people that shared their support.
