I’m sorry you’re going through this!

I don’t have much advice, but I do understand what you’re going through (especially with problem 3 on your list!)

My Maid/Matron of Honor is finishing med school and starts her residency soon so we are also working with someone who has a difficult schedule… We decided to get married in 2012 in order to avoid a lot of that drama. It sucks, yea… but it is important that she is there with us so it’s a sacrifice we were willing to make. Plus it’s giving us an extra year to save $$ for the big day!!

Good luck… I know that no matter what you decide to do, you will have a wonderful wedding. 🙂

I understand! I have moved my wedding around so many time to try to make things easier on everyone and us. I’ve finally decided it’s next June and if I’m the only one who shows up then oh well. We have the same budget, no parental help, I’m finishing school, he has a job but travels a lot, he might have to have surgery soon… it’s never ending. I told him today I feel like if I don’t push everything along it won’t happen. He hasn’t been helping with anything, he says yes or no to things sometimes, but I have to badger him about it. I told him the reception coordinator called and told me the (new) date I want is available and his reply was don’t do anything extravagant! I have sent him all the papers on this place and he agreed it was perfect! AH! Oh, and we’ve been engaged for four freaking years.

I feel your pain, it’s hard.

I went through that too when I was planning. It sounds like you just need to reach out and get your hands on concrete stuff. I know that this isn’t going to sound all that helpful, but make a decision. Just one. As soon as I said, okay we’re getting married on a Sunday, things started to fall better into place. And don’t let hypotheticals freak you out–I’m sure your church would love to marry you, but what’s the worst that could happen? They refuse? Well then you’ll move on to somewhere else, but it isn’t worth thinking about it unless it actually happens. So take a deep breath and email your pastor (or priest or whatever). Maybe that’ll be your first step…
