I would consider other money gathering alternatives. They have wedding loans out there and you might want to see about getting one or a personal loan or pre-approval just to be sure, in case daddy doesnt come through. If your mom says she will figure something out, I would measure it up just in case. Cancelling the wedding would be frustrating for not just you and your FI, especially if you have out of town guests and attendents and most airlines have a no refund policy. I would exercise all options prior to deciding on a cancellation. I am very sorry that you’re going through this, and I do wish you the best. I am doing a lot of corner cutting and cost effective options, if you’d like to put our minds together to make things a little easier for you and your budget.

So sorry you are going through this only a couple of months before your wedding, I think you should sit down with your father and have a serious talk. Just explain to him how much stress this is causing you and your understand if he can no longer pay for the wedding anf if that is the case you just need to know so that you can make adjustments. I wouldn’t call off the wedding but once you decide how much funds that you actually have available you can scale down your guest list and speak to each vendor to see if you can apply your deposit to a lesser package.

Garage sale, summer tutoring. Going after the traditional “summer jobs” – babysitting, lawnmowing, pet walking. If you tell your neighbors that you’re doing this to raise money for your wedding, they’d have to be cold hearted to chose a 13-year-old kid over you!
