- Wedding: October 2009
so, i’ve broken my foot and the doc says it’s a bad break in a bad spot.
i was sick for my ortho appt and didn’t make it. i had to reschedule and can’t get in until this friday. well, it’s been two weeks since the break and i fell yesterday and totally ruined any healing progress that had been made=( it looks terrible! it hurts like crazy and i can’t put any pressure on it. my wedding was supposed to be on august the 8th! the dr had said i might need surgery and that this kind of break takes extra long to heal. he wasn’t candy coating anything. he gave me 0 hope for the wedding.ok…so heres my question.
would you postpone your wedding?
i’m saying yes and my fiance thinks no.
i’ll tell you why i want to, eventhough i think it’s obvious ; )
– i know guests might be a bit put out and i do feel bad BUT, it’s OUR hard earned money. i will have to use crutches down the aisle especially if i have surgery & it falls days before or maybe even closer to the wedding day.
we’ve waited for this day for 10 years!
i won’t be able to have our first dance=(
i won’t be able to dance period. we will be paying for a dj for everyone else but us…on our wedding day.
all of our pix will be with me and crutches. sorry but i’m not the kind to think it’s *cute* i want to be beautiful without crutches for my day.i don’t want to pay all this money for a pro photographer and get crutches in my pics.
we are going to jamaica right aftarwards. we have to leave 3 hourse after the reception. how am i going to walk with crutches all over an airport and while we’re layed over. my underarms are already bruised. all that walking! then, once we get to jamaica, how am i going to do all the things we payed for in advance? the scuba diving, the horseback riding, the outings, the rock climbing…the list goes on.
how will i swim in the ocean that i’m dying to swim in…
how am i going to walk in the sand? walking in sand is going to kill my foot. walking in sand is way different than walking on the flat ground. when that spot on my foot moves i almost scream=(
i don’t think it’s going to be healed enough by then to walk in sand…to dance…to walk down the aisle without crutches or a severe limp. i was also planning on joining in on the resort partying and having a little of the FREE alcohol with my new hubby.
it just seems like all the fun i’ve payed for and have been dreaming about has went down the drain. i don’t think my fiance is going to have fun either if i’m sitting around 24/7 and in pain.
what if i fall again right before the wedding? theres so many bad things that could make things even worse.
i just feel bad. i want to move the date but my fiance says that it will upset ppl and that he’s embarrassed.
would you postpone? am i being selfish?
