So many years ago I became really good friends with 2 girls , we were 17 and at college together. Anyway, fast forward a few years to 2000 and dh and I got married and friend1 'R' came to our wedding and friend2 'B' was my bridesmaid. I didn't ask R as she was away travelling and I wasn't sure if she'd be back. But anyway she made it back for the wedding and a few months after before going off travelling again.
In March 2002 she was in New Zealand back packing and had a massive heart attack and died. She was only 25. Sad other friend and I are obviously devastated. Fast forward another year and B gets married at the end of the year. In the same church where I got married and R was buried Sad
Anyway was talking to my mum about her today and also about Bs wedding. And she said 'oh gosh I remember her wedding so well, your father and I went along to the church and watched from outside waiting to see B and her dh come out of the church. I remember so well R arrived really late, screeching to a halt in her car, we chatted a while and she said she couldn't stop but just wanted to see B on her wedding day' and at first I was all 'how typical hahah she was always late for everything!' Then I thought ' well that can't be right as she would have been AT the wedding' then... 'I don't remmeber her being there' then the sudden realisation that she couldn't have been there as she had died 18 months or so before Shock. It was so so typically R that it seems so plausible and why would my mum make it up or misremember it? There was no way she would have muddled her up with someone else and wouldn't be confusing the wedding with another one either. Anyway just thought I'd share. Thought you might all like it Smile

I've never heard of a ghost arriving by car before! Are you going to ask your mum if she's entirely sure, given the circumstances!

I know hahaha! Weird right. It was a while ago obv but she was so matter of fact about it. Which was why I went through this really daft monologue in my head!

Did your mum seriously just tell you she a ghost at your friends wedding?

And she told you now - years after the event?

That's really cool :)

Yea! But she thought it actually happened it only occurred to me a few minutes after she'd said about it. I WANT to belive it rather than my mum just being batty!

I think your mum may be confusing the memories of your wedding with those of B's wedding

Thing is I do distinctly remember my mum and dad being outside the church at Bs wedding when we came out. Little country village church and they'd strolled along the lane to watch

Your mum and dad would hardly be standing outside the church waiting to see you at your own wedding. Unless you're not particularly close. Grin

I love that people think the fact she arrived in a car is the implausible bit πŸ˜†

Why, because ghosts can't drive? I would love to hear the description of the car she used.

Okay two possible solutions:
A) your parents/mum saw a ghost
B) your mother's memories have become confused, and a memory of B has become added to her memory of the wedding- it could even have been a vivid dream. Memory isn't that reliable.

Of course in a book/film/eastenders it would be C) B isn't really dead - just .... In witness protection or whatever.

This was what I immediately thought.
