This journal is created for the bride, relative, friend of bride or fiance who recognize the vital component a mother plays in the soul of a woman stepping into marriage. The intent of this journal is to provide emotional space in preparation toward your wedding day. Perhaps you have wondered how you will be able to get through the dress shopping experience without her; or how you can commemorate her memory during the ceremony. Perhaps you have struggled to remember her mannerisms or what she would have said during your toast. Or perhaps you have an unexplainable fear of losing the person most dear to you at this time in reaction to her loss. Whether only one or all of these thoughts resonate with you, this journal is intended to give voice to some of the areas of love and grief, so closely intertwined during this rite of passage.
