First, I am sorry your son has to go through all of that.  You are a strong woman for doing it all while planning a wedding.  We pushed our wedding out a year just a month out from our original date, so I have been there.  We had my dad marry us legally on our original date and had our wedding a year later.  I kept with our original vision of the wedding, although I did upgrade my dress.  My original one was ruined by a seamstress, not that I changed my mind.  I still love my original dress more than my second dress, and am still sad it didn’t get worn.

If you ever need to chat or vent about wedding changes you are more than welcome to PM me anytime.

If it’s a financial issue of not being able to plan and buy exactly what you want, I’d wait.  I wouldn’t worry too much about the dress or decor… that can be changed if you really HATE it, but chances are if you love it now you’ll still love it in a year (just don’t go shopping or looking at more dresses!)

If it’s just about time… well I think 5 months is plenty especially considering you already have the major things like venue and photographer.  I’d be more concerned about the financial aspect.

I too just made the decision to postpone my wedding for a year. Its  hard decision to make but what it comes down to ultimately is making a decision that makes you happy nd meets the needs of our family. Right now it seems like you know what you need to do, but part of you is struggling to let go of the date (and money). 1000 is a lot of money, but the value of stress and happiness for your family is well worth more than that much!

For me personally the finances of planning a wedding, while graduating in a month, with a fiance who hasn’t been able to find work was just too stressful. We made the decision to loose some of our deposit money bur knowing full well that the day we get married will be well work the wait and it is important for us to start our marriage out right.

 

If you need anyone you can always PM me as well- keep your head up and things wil work out.
