Wow, my family is very close like that as well. That is a huge shock and is so sad.

However, that said, I think you’ve made the best decision to help out your family, while still celebrating your day – just in a smaller way.

It must be hard to put your wedding on hold, but this is family. I think you did the best thing.

Hi there,

I can relate- My wedding is in august and to be honest I couldnt care less about it as my mum is fighting for her life in intensive care.


I live in sydney australia and came home to Ireland last week. We are paying for the wedding ourselves so instead of having a wedding we are going to use the money to move home to Ireland.


I totally feel for you-  xxxx

Awwww. **Hug**

I am so impressed that you are making such a generous decision for your family. All I have to say is that only good things and a happy marriage can come out of such a kind decision.

I’m so impressed by your selflessness.  Of *course* you feel bad about it – it’s a terrible situation, and having to cancel the bigger celebration is just salt in the wound.  But I hope you will be repaid a thousandfold for the good deed you are doing now.

Sorry to hear about your godfather, enjoy your ceremony (which you’ll probably cherish and appreciate more now) and maybe just have a “reception” type event further down the road if the siuation rights itself. Keeping you in my thoughts.

I’m so sorry to hear but it is wonderful that he has the support of his family. Having your loved ones at a meaningful ceremony will be great.

Maybe one day down the road when things are better you could have a big anniversary party for yourselves.
