Sorry to hear you’re not so happy.  Why exactly are you having a horrible engagement?  Mine isn’t all butterflies and rainbows. Life does need to go on during this time.  It’s not horrible though.  It’s just… life.

Are you fighting with your fiance or your families or both? We’ve had our ups and downs, but I don’t think I’d say that I’ve had a horrible engagement. Sorry to hear that you’re not having fun Frown

Ugh…I was right there with you! The only point during my engagement that was happy was the first week. The day I got engaged was the happiest day of my life, and then it all went downhill from there.

My mom made things really difficult for me to enjoy my engagement at all, and it was such a shame. I just wanted to let you know that I know how you feel and hopefully, the time will fly by and you’ll be on your honeymoon!

Well, I wouldn’t say horrible cuz I like to stay optimistic, but I have never been so stressed out in my life.  I find myself putting off decision making because I know there is going to be someone family or Fiance who has a very vocal problem about it.  I just can’t do anything without hurting someone’s feelings and then I am the one crying at night…geez. 

We’ll all get through this, but I just hope the day is beautiful and worth it!!

No, every little girl’s parents do not save from the time they are born and that is not something that should be expected. It’s not about the parents, it’s about you and the man you love committing to each other for the rest of your lives! If I was going through what you’re going through, I would say thanks but no thanks and either elope or have a very small wedding with just family that you could afford yourselves. Cancel what you can in terms of bookings and offer to pay your in-laws back when you can afford it. It really is the marriage that’s the important thing, not the wedding. Weddings are celebrations. If it’s causing you so much misery and sadness, then it’s not a celebration and it’s not worth it! I wish you the best.

@margsie: I so agree with you, if you are having so many problems because of the money issue jsut dont accept it and elope…you dont want to remember your wedding as doing favors for them just because they are paying for it and you dont deserve to be put down by them. sorry for thiss ;(
