I am so sorry that you are upset!  You’re probably already upset about not having the “first” vision you had (DW), and now it’s downgrading from the original idea even more.


Would “no limo, no bagpiper and/or harpist, low-end hotel, rented suit” be the main things you have to cut?  It doesn’t seem like too much.  Did you have a dinner planned?  Will that still be the same?

@MrsN2Be:  We kind of went through the same thing.  Deposits were out, invitations mailed, etc. and 45 days before the wedding we decided to change the date because we basically ran out of money to pay our balances.  We simply called everyone personally and just explained that we decided to postpone the wedding.  Luckily we were having a fairly small and intimate event so it really wasn’t such a big deal (mostly close family).  Also, LUCKILY everyone that we dealt with-venue, photographer, bakery, decorator, etc. were very understanding and simply allowed us to move our deposits over to the new date without losing any money.  The only thing that we lost money on was the invitations.  We had even paid for our honeymoon so we just used that trip as a very romantic vacation.  I know that you’re upset but just talk things over and don’t stress about it.  Do what works for the both of YOU.  Honestly, this time has allowed me to plan better with alot less stress and include all of the details that we couldn’t before.  Good luck.

As a guest, I know I would not be thrilled to come to a bridal shower and then have the wedding postponed on the heels of it. I know you said you wouldn’t have a second one later, but I can still see it ruffling feathers.  If you postpone, I’d suggest calling people who were invited to the shower to change it.  (It’s pretty tight notice anyhow for folks…my Maid/Matron of Honor didn’t invite until 3 weeks before the shower either, so I had a lot who couldn’t make it.)
