I cannot stand this. We have gone thru 5 dates, 3 different locations (including the thought of eloping). I feel like a fool, and very embarrassed by the fact that I have to tell my family that we have changed the plans AGAIN. We have decided to wait until we are financially stable, and we would like to be engaged for a while longer. We have not set a new date ( which is prob a good thing ). I justt feel like crap having to tell my family that we arent getting married right now. They are very judgemental, and I dont like to be talked about 🙁

@peachbaby4008: Sorry you’re going through this. I understand what it’s like to go on a emotional roller coaster regarding your wedding, plans, and just not knowing what’s going to happen. I suggest going to a JOP, marrying, then saving up for the big day to share with everyone else. No one has to know.
Another suggestion I have is an intimate backyard wedding and reception if you know anyone with a nice sized backyard.
I know these decisions are tough ones to make. I went through the same struggles.
I do wish you the best of luck though.

@Rouquine: Thank you very much. It just really sucks. I want to crawl under a rock…I dont think my family will take me very seriously :/

I am currently telling my family for the third time that the wedding has been postponed, and much like you my family is extremely judgemental! Sometimes i dont think ill be able too handle some of the things they say, but i tell them anyway. I know ill hear about it for a long time coming but hey if they dont have the tact to keep their mouths shut when I am in a time of emotional healing then i avoid them till i am ready to face what they have too say.
