@fabange:  Oh no! ๐Ÿ™  So sorry for the whole family’s loss.  I know you must be SUPER bummed about having to postpone, but it sounds like it was a family wide decision.  Bummer!!

I’m really sorry you have to postpone your wedding, and for your FI’s family’s loss. That means you’re losing out on all the deposited money, too, right?

I agree that a respectable amount of time should pass before pursuing the wedding but why does it have to be next July? Why not sometime this fall or even next spring?

@cwedding14:  I agree.  

@fabange:  I’m not sure what your religion is.  But could you still get married this year?  Or is the next year date what was offered by your venue and vendors?

Either way, I’m sorry for you loss.

@fabange:  I wouldn’t postpone. Life happens, people pass away and that sucks, but why should you wait for something you’ve been planning that’s only two weeks away?


i understand that for you it seems to be a cultural thing, but even still. I don’t think I would postpone-it’s a joyous occasion that would bring the family together.

Oh no!! So sorry…I think you should get married like you said. Celebrate once the mourning period has passed. ๐Ÿ™

@fabange:  I am so sorry for your loss.

I was in a similar situation when I was 13 years old. My grandmother died 3 days before my bat mitzvah (in Jewish culture, an event of even greater importance than a wedding and on the same scale of planning as a wedding). I have no idea how my mother held it together but she did and I appreciate so much what she did for me. The day after, we flew to my grandmother’s home for her funeral. It was a weird hard time, but it was what it was and we made the best of it. My bat mitzvah was still amazing, despite the loss. 

So, it can work! Blessings to you in the weeks ahead!
