I know that we certainly cannot predict what’s going to happen. FI and I both have major health issues (see previous posts) and right now I cannot focus on wedding planning at all. We both need to recover and recuperate, that is our priority. I’ve already changed the wedding date once and we’ve put deposits down on the venue, photography and flowers, I have my dress/accessories too. I’m thinking that perhaps we should scale down the plans and just have a simple ceremony, but FI really wants a wedding with family and friends. My recovery from illness has been slower than I hoped and I just want to get married on 4/27/13. Any thoughts from my fellow bees would be appreciated.

@PMSJL: Hello future bride! 😀
I’m sorry for your illness, and i reallly hope you feel better by the end of April 2013!
I understand your fiancé’s wish to have a more familial and friendly wedding! I have heard of a few weddings where only some family members and 1 or 2 friends were invited, a very simple ceremony and stuff, and the non’invited other members of the family and friends felt utterly offended and excluded! Maybe, in your case, they will be understanding… But i think a wedding where all your loved ones made the effort to come to be there for you and wish you a happy blessed life is very heart warming don’t you think?
As for your anxiety about the planning, tell your mom, tell your best friends that you need help! You could even tell them to secretly plan the wedding for you (who better than them knows what you like and what you wish?). Everything would be a mystery, you won’t be allowed to know anything they’re doing. And when you feel all this love, all the warmth of these little attentions from them all around you on your arrival at the ceremony, it will truly be the best day of you life on all levels!!! And you won’t have to worry about anything!!! If you’re afraid this mission is gonna be a little too heavy for them, tell them you don’t want anything too extravagant, guide them if they need to, but do not exhaust yourself! You need to rest in order to fully recover! Take care of your beloved and of yourself! It’s your priority! 😉
And as your month twin (my date is 04-06-2013!) i wish you the best and hope i have been helpful!!!

Thank you for the kind words, and congratulations to you. We are trying to get through this latest setback, and we’ll see what happens. I have to take things day by day at this point, but I will say my wedding is not a priority right now.
