It is totally understandable to be sad about that! I’m sorry, and I’ll be crossing my fingers for you guys that this last avenue for the funds works out.

This is sad but you guys will come through it!  Really try to feel your emotions and see what’s the most upsetting part: is it having to wait a little longer to get married?  Do a tiny courthouse wedding and host the huge party later!  Is it not having the huge party now?  That’s understandable, just know that it will wait for you…I’m sure your friends and family will still be down to party in a year or two!  Either way, this is not a problem, just another bump in the road that’s slightly changing your course.  Don’t worry, you’ll still get where you’re going ๐Ÿ™‚

@Sugar_and_Spice:  Please know you’re not alone! I’m sorry to hear about financial problems. Do you think you could borrow money from relatives? Also if you’re relgious, why not get married in your church, synagogue, etc in the morning and have a short and sweet brunch in the church hall after? If you go to costco, walmart, etc buying food for 200 people should be affordable and i’m sure the church would waive any rental fees. Also why not get married civilly now and have the big wedding later on? Good luck! ๐Ÿ™‚ Stay positive! You’re with the love of your life ๐Ÿ™‚

OH NO!!! I’m so bummed for you. I know it must be tough BUT kudos to you for deciding to postpone rather than go into a bunch of debt to pull both off!

I’ll be crossing my finger and toes that the other form of funding comes through!

We are having our wedding in Puerto Rico as well, we are doing it really inexpensively! Is there anything you can simplify to make the wedding more affordable without stressing you out? Sorry for your troubles. ๐Ÿ™

Just stay engaged for a while and save more money for your dream wedding (if that’s where you want to spend your money)! No big deal!

Can you get student loans, just for this semester?
