- Wedding: July 2014
Happy almost Thanksgiving, everyone! I want to try to crowd source some advice on my wedding date. Really, what I want to know is how and when to bring up the issue of my wedding date with my parents. We got engaged over the summer, everyone was very happy, and we had almost settled on a date for next summer, but then life got complicated. My dad was diagnosed with cancer and it devastated the whole family. Everything wedding was put on hold while we dealt with his immediate medical needs. Life is starting to get a bit more stable now, but the future for my dad is still uncertain, to say the least. I don’t really feel like wedding planning, but people have started to ask about the date so that they can arrange their work schedules for next year, So far I have told them to back off. But, I do realize that people need to know, and we need to start booking venues and whatnot. I want to wait to see what kind of prognosis the doctors have for my dad and to get a better sense for when he might be well enough to attend a wedding. But, I am beginning to realize that we will never know those things for sure and perhaps I should just go ahead with a date and hope for the best. Any advice? Thank you!
