I would personally try to move the date. We had friends in a similiar financial situation and there was a lot of crying and stress. They still have not recovered financially 6 months later as the bride is still unemployed. I bet you can move the vendors to a different date without losing the deposit. In the end- you want the least stress.

Hugs* I hope that helps some!

I’d try to move the date. The last thing you want is for your FH to be stressed in the months leading up to his and your wedding.

Hmm, if you haven’t sent out the STD’s yet, I would go head and see if you can move the date. I think it’s actually really good that your Fiance is looking out for things like this that could potentially put a rift on the wedding day festivities. Three months isn’t that long, and your vendors, I would guess, will probably be willing to work with you.

That’s a hard decision, but I’d rather move the date and ask the vendors if they could move it too, if they aren’t booked for the new date, maybe they’ll do it free of charge…

I would say that its worth looking into, but if you are going to loose hundreds of dollars then maybe it is best to go ahead and keep the date.  Maybe you can try to do as much of the planning by yourself and keep things as simple as possible.  It sounds like you have a lot of the work done alread.

I agree that the first step is to figure out how much money changing the date will cost you.  If you are moving from summer to fall, your vendors may be flexible, since they can probably rebook for a summer saturday pretty easily.  If you’re going to lose lots of money by changing, then that’s probably your answer right there.  If not, then you can start the conversation about whether it makes sense for you.  So contact your vendors before you make any decisions!

All comes down to money sadly. If you can afford to, change it. But if not, make sure you both do all you can to emjoy your day anyway. Good luck with things.
