The venue won’t let you apply your deposit to another date?  If you can postpone for a bit, I think it’d help ease your mind.  

Can he get a part time job in the meantime?  Something seasonal with the Holidays coming up?


I’m sorry this is such a hard time for you, but things always have a way of working out!

I’m sorry!  That’s dreadful!  But it will be ok!  I would call every one of my vendors and tell them what is going on, that the date needs to be moved back, and that I need my current deposits to be carried forward and applied to the new date.  Trust me, they would rather work with you than not at all, and I can’t think of a single business owner that wouldn’t do their best to accomidate a date change without voiding the deposit…it’s ok and it will be OK, fice months is plenty of time for them to re-book!

This sucks big time. I also think if you move it to another date the Venue would probably being willing to work with you with enough notice.

As for your Fi has he tried temping or odd side jobs until he can find another job? It’s annoying but better then nothing. Perhaps working retail during the holiday season would be a good idea?

Do you work? I’m helping to pay for our wedding costs by picking up overtime in little pieces here and there. 

Also I don’t know what area you’re in, but your Fiance might look into doing lawn or yard work to supplement the unemployment. Fall is just about here and a lot of people don’t want to rake leaves or pine needles. Might pay only a little but every little bit helps.

holiday season is coming..  Can he pick up a part-time job?  He should be able to collect unemployment still, he may just get less..
