    I would cut your guest list. You wouldn’t necessarily have to do it on a cruise but that sounds kind of fun.  I just know that we had a 2 yr engagement and I really wouldn’t have wanted anything longer.

    I wouldnt push it back to 2012, personally I find it hard to plan a wedding if its too far away, and since you’ve been engaged since 2009 I would just cut the guest list

    Unfortunately cutting your guest list really isn’t an option since you’ve already sent STD’s.  This is why it’s wise to wait until closer to the wedding to send out Save the Dates.  Once someone has received an STD you must invite them to the wedding.  I would consider having a really casual (and therefore inexpensive) wedding on the date you originally set.  Something like a back yard BBQ or something in park.

    We have had similar issues, we’ve been engaged for almost 18 months, and it seems like we have planned about 3 weddings LOL. Finally we’re at a point where we’re just ready to be married, and if we keep waiting for life to be 100%, it’ll never happen. We’ve refocused, and really decided that it’s more important to just have a wedding that focuses on us and who we are, rather than the sort of song and dance we were initially focused on.

    Now since you’ve sent the STD’s, there isn’t really any coming back from that. I think the only option you could possibly do is just elope and have a party with all the STD people later, but that’s not really saving you any money since you’ll still have to cover all the basics and thats where the most money goes.

    You also really can’t invite people only to the ceremony, you should at least serve punch and cake if it’s at an in-between meal time 🙂
