That is disappointing but i’m glad you are able to see the positive in it! We are also having a long engagement due to financial reasons. Best of luck to you both!

Did you ask them about why they contributed to his sisters, but not yours?  Not that you should expect something, but it’s always unfortunate when parents treat their children differently for whatever reason, including gender.

Take the time to bargain hunt, DIY, buy Michael’s out on 50% or 55% coupons (sneer at the 40% ones), etc.

And the Niagra Falls trip sounds beautiful!

Sounds very responsible and like you made a great decision for you two!

You won’t regret it. We changed our wedding date too, from Nov 11 to May 5 because we wanted to buy a house before the wedding and our finances were just stretched to thin. That extra 6 months of saving and planning time made such a huge difference. I think it was meant to be. I feel like we had the perfect wedding day. I am sure you will find the same to be true.

I think that is very responsible of you two!

“We are going to go away on the weekend we were to get married to Niagara Falls to relax and be alone together so that we can reflect on our love and the future we’re building.”

We cancelled our wedding and we will be at our former wedding location the weekend of the former wedding as well!

@MrsN2Be:  That’s really unfortunate.  It sounds like the parents need to learn to set boundaries (or they will start to resent her too), but that’s their problem, not yours.  Good for you for working with what you have and supporting Fiance so this resentment doesn’t permanently damage his relationship with his sister.
