- Wedding: May 2013
I’m planning a wedding for May 18th, 2013. I live in Virginia and am planning the wedding in Michigan (where I’m from). I have appointments set up over the next couple of weeks since I’ll be in town.
My dilemma is this…my grandfather isn’t doing so well. And I’ll see how he’s doing when I go to Michigan. But my mom is worried that he might not make it to the May 18th date, so while she hasn’t straight out asked if I could move the date up, I think she’d like me to. And I really want him to be at my wedding.
The thing is, my fiancé and I are paying for the wedding ourselves and we should have enough money saved by this November. So we were thinking about pushing up the date to October 2012.
Do I go through this entire process of moving up the date to October without knowing if he can even make it that date?
What bothers me the most is that I don’t know exactly what’s going to happen. I always pictured having an early summer wedding outdoors. I’m still planning for a May wedding, but am making some appointments with vendors in case I have to push it up in October. I just feel like I’m planning two different weddings.
I’m not sure how to get a handle on this situation and was wondering if anyone can offer any advice?
