I just want to get married already, our planning process has been on going for some time now. When we had to cancel our wedding dec 31, 2012 due to a family death we had planned to reschedule for march. However, we had to cancel yet again, sadly my dad had a heart attack in jan and my FI’s father has been told he needs a lung transplant if his medication doesn’t work that they have him on now. I guess with everything going on it has been extremely stressful for everyone to say the least, and I’m feeling guilty for having wedding fever so suddenly. I have thought about planning something small for august, having my dad marry us and having just our parents and siblings with us on the day. We have lost out on hundreds of dollars already for deposits so to go ahead and get back into planning to cancel again is something we can’t afford. Has any bee’s been through something like this before? I am so grateful that both our father’s health is looking up, my FI’s father is responding positively to the meds, and my dad is recovering well. Should I wait till they are both 100% healthy to start planning my wedding or do you think it’s safe to start planning now?

A backyard wedding is sounding more an more charming to me too. How cute and edgy would a little courthouse ceremony be too. I feel like everyone who I talk to who has been married always regrets not doing something more casual. No one ever says they wished they had done a bigger, more elaborate wedding than planned. This could all be a blessing in disguise and you could end up having the wedding of your dreams and saving a ton of money. Plus it sounds like all the important ppl will be there. With al the health issues, it seems like a quiet event with both of your parents could be really special and just what the doctor ordered. So sorry you had to deal with all that. At least this is a good test for you and your fiance. If you can finally make it down the alter, you can make it through a lot worse down the road. Chin up Buttercup. It will happen soon and when it does, your day will be worth all the wait.

@MrsCtobee: Perhaps do something small for now and then have your dream wedding on your anniverysary or so. FI and I had to cancel our big wedding due to personal reasons. I’ve suffered some depression over it, but have come to terms with what we decided to do. There’s still plenty of opportunities in the near future to do what we wish.

I agree that a backyard wedding would be a good idea, plus you will have everyone that is important there with you. And this way you might be able to marry before August. Good luck sweetie and I will keep your dads in my prayers.
