- Wedding: October 2016
hey everyone! I am new here! I’ve always read the boards but never posted. But im super confused and in a situation that sucks, so opinions would be awesome.
We got engaged April 2015, and set our date for October 2016, which is a decent engagement length. But recently we have been talking about postponing because Of these reasons:
Fiance lost good job and had to get a not so great paying job, so now saving money is a lot more difficult to save.
I start school in january, so I can’t have a full time job, bit really this is the least of my concerns.
His parents were so excited we were getting married and kinda led us on for paying for equal parts of the wedding, but then in September told us they weren’t going to help at all.
My dad died in May 2015(exactly one month after we got engaged) and now it’s just my mom. She doesn’t have the best job but is determined to pay for the whole wedding, which I feel terrible about, and angry at fiances parents because they are pretty successful Financially.
I moved back in with my mom because I didn’t like her being alone, and since my fiancé lost his really good job my mom let him move in too cause his parents definitely wouldn’t have. So we are all kind of helping each other.
So we are between a rock and a hard place. Neither of us want to push it back because there is like 10 months between now and when we get married, so there is a chance he could get a better job and maybe his parents would help?
I just would love some input because I am so stressed and having anxiety attacks over it a lot because it’s super stressful. Should we put it off? The only deposit we have made is on the photographer, but our church and hall are spoken for too, plus we sent out save the dates about 2 weeks ago(we have people who need a lot of time for plannimh because they live across the country and in a different country ect) so how do I all of a sudden say “hey nevermind”
ugh, thanks in advance everyone. Sorry for my grammar but I’m stress typing.
