So today after a weekend of having one big ass discussion, my FI and I have decided to postpone our wedding for September/November 2011 instead of March 2011. FI has been working on his construction buisness before and during the whole wedding process plus over 30k for wedding expenses, it has taken it’s toll on our bank account. Now we are 3+ months until the set date and we think it would be better to save some money instead of spending it all in one shot and being BROKE afterwards. I know it is what is best, but in another sense I can’t help but be heartbroken about it. I feel so unmotivated to even look at wedding-related things because now i know its so far away and all i can think about is how it WAS SO CLOSE! Everyone tells me that it’s not a big deal but it is to me…
I just had to get that off my chest…

Give it a few days and you’ll be back, I think. Right now it’s just the initial shock of it all…but it will go by so fast! Get back into looking at photos and planning and it will all fall back into place. Plus, I LOVE fall weddings. I think that’s a super romantic time to get married. The fall foliage makes for beautiful pictures too =)

I’m sure it is upsetting for both of you, but it is the wisest decision you can make. You definitely do not want to start your marriage being in substantial debt. You wouldn’t want to eat ramon noodles for every meal, would you?! Hugs!

Aww that stinks. Although I would look at it as a little more time to look and make sure you’re getting exactly what you want!

Thank you so much girls…after the initial shock went away i guess i’m okay with it…we ended up postponing to January 2012 for a winter wonderland wedding. I’m staying with the bee though because planning still is so much fun (: xoxox THANK YOU!

You are SO doing the right thing. Think of it this way–by postponing your wedding, you are investing in your marriage. And I think winter weddings are just insanely classy. Have fun planning it!

- Wedding: March 2011 - The Providence Biltmore
Awwww! That must be dissapointing. On the bright side, start working on that pesky to-do list that was impending and you’ll have the chillest last month ever! HUGS

The pain is still raw at the moment for you. Perhaps give it time and you may feel more accepting of it. Try to remember that your wedding will be beautiful whenever the date is.
