    Will you lose a deposit for the reception venue if you postpone?( if you made a deposit) or will they credit it to your new date?

    I would definitely talk to your reception site. We pushed our date back for the same reason and am SOOOOOOOO glad we did… b/c the original date wouldv’e killed us… or prompted us to kill each other/some one else lol

    We we’re able to “move” our deposit to our new date so there weren’t any issues.

    Also, everyone that already knew the original date were understanding and didn’t really make any kind of fuss about it.

    So check with your site and see what your situation is there… if there isn’t any issue then I would push it back (i’m also biased to this decision given that’s what we did) if you loose your deposit then you and your Fiance should look at your budget to see if that works for ya’ll

    If it were me, and I wasn’t going to lose any money, I’d postpone.  We had a long, almost 2 years, engagement, and it made things very stress free because I wasn’t rushing to get everything done. And a year is a lot of time to save up more money, and buy things little by little so it doesn’t hurt that bad financially.

    • Wedding: June 2011

    I got engaged in Feb. 2010 and originally wanted to get married in June 2010 but we felt like that wasn’t enough notice for our guests. So we decided on June 2011 and it felt so far away, but now it is almost here! It gave us more time to save money and research vendors! Time does go by really fast! I would talk to your family and see their thoughts and see if its possible to move your date with your vendors.
