I am sorry about your grandfather.

If you are relieved about it then it sounds like it was the right decision for you. As your wedding was something anticipated, of course you are going to feel let down that it will not be happening when you had hoped but at least you wont feel rushed trying to plan and be there emotionally for your family.

You don’t want to spread yourself too thin to where you dont get to enjoy planning one of the biggest days of your life.

I bet your feeling bummed, but like you said, you did what was best for you two, in the end you will have a great wedding and marriage.

Yes!  I agree, I think later you will thank yourself for taking some extratime for you, your fiancé and your family.


Additional benefits (just in case you need a couple more!):

1. Being a spring bride means the whole world is dressed in pretty pastels for yourwedding!

2.) lots of wonderful, affordable flower choices (a friend of mine had daffodils, beautiful!)

3.) more time to DIY!

4.) being married in the spring will be awesome, you’ll have the whole summer to be giddy newlyweds!

5.) imagine the joy on your families’ faces, this could be a really healing event after the passing of your grandfather.

6.) way less pressure on yourself, your mom, your Fiance and your family.

Ok, #1-4 are superficial, but sometimes thinking about the pretty can get us through the dark times.  You are strong and smart and you’re doing the best thing for you!

((HUGS)) So sorry to hear this but a spring wedding will be beautiful and it’s not too much further off.  Sorry to hear about everything you’re facing, I hope things start looking up for you soon.  You and your Fiance stick together and you’ll come out even stronger in the end.
