My bf and I had a long talk this morning and finally came to a conclusion.
We have no choice but to postpone the wedding. We have nothing else figured out except my dress, and we don’t have enough money for anything. On top of this we are looking for new jobs, a place, and even new vehicles.
This doesn’t mean the wedding will be postponed indefinitely, just until we get new jobs, which shouldn’t take long at all. But it does mean the wedding won’t happen until at least September.
Also, I told him I don’t want to send out invites until we are actually engaged. Not to put ANY pressure on him, but instead to let him know that we need to take things a little slower, and that we need to focus more on day-to-day goals than everything at once.
I will of course continue to post, and look for ideas and themes, cause this is something I really need to figure out, and I love posting here. Also, I will post as soon as I get my dress, cause it IS the one 🙂
Thanks everyone for all your support, and I look forward to sending updates 🙂

Any encouragement or advice, bees?

It sounds like you’re making the right decision. It’s much better to postpone the wedding now than to get upon the date and not have enough money to cover your costs. Plus, after you dive into planning it can be so overwhelming. This way you have time to focus on your jobs, new place and cars. You can still gather ideas in the meantime, of course!

Wishing you goodluck on your job search. I think it’s very wise of you both to concentrate in making sure you can cover your expenses before diving into it. Like armychica06 says September is right there, so it may not be so bad after all
Keep us posted!

You are making the right decision to postpone. As other Bees said, September is only 6 months away, so it’s not that far from now. I wish you luck in the house search/job search and hope it all works out for you both.

Well bees, we went and got our taxes done today, and they were less than a quarter of what we thought we would get (based on previous income). That money was to be a down on an apartment. Now it looks like the wedding and everything else could take longer, unless some miracle happens.
I ask for your prayers that we will find new jobs soon, and that things will start to turn up.
