“Have any of you ladies had to postpone your weddings? How did you feel about it, how did you tell your friends and family?”

We postponed a wedding.  We undid the entire thing just 4 months before the big day (it was going to be next month by the way).  However, it was because my dad had 3-5 months to live and the wedding was in 4 months.  BAD timing and I was scared.  Everyone would have to fly in as I don’t live near anyone, so it was a good thing we did cancel.  My daddy passed away June 1.

Back in March when we cancelled, I was sad and also relieved as well.  I think I started to sleep well at night!  Huge sign!  However, I didn’t have a wedding the first time I got married (eloped), so I was kind of thinking I should do a wedding this time, so I was mourning was never was.

Now we are really struggling with what to do for a wedding.  I know 100% in my heart that I cannot go through planning a wedding like that again (we had 75 guests and it was in a national park).  I just don’t want to do that again and I certainly don’t want to spend the money anymore!  However, logistics and all with family being far away and how hard it seemed to get them here – it looks like we are eloping with maybe our parents as the guests and that’s it.
