It’s been a weird week for me. First I found out I’d need thousands in dental surgery (I don’t have insurance). Then we bought the house (Yay!) but now we realize we’ll need more money than we initially thought *which is actually a plus because having too many rooms to furnish is only a short term problem.
We’ve now postponed the wedding indefinitely. I don’t know if we’ll ever get to do the wedding I have dreamed of and worked so hard for. He said for our original date of next May we can probably afford 3-5k, not our initial 12. But he won’t commit to that since we just bought the house and we don’t know what can happen financially. I said let’s just go to the courthouse and make it official then and he said “don’t you think I already feel bad enough telling you we can’t do your carnival wedding? I can’t take it all away from us.”
Did I mention thousands in dental surgery? And the surgery I had done Thursday still hurts like a mo-fo.
I’m so sad I can’t even type anymore. I will most likely take a short break to clear my head. I love you ladies.

Oh hon I’m so sorry! First of all–feel better! Dental problems are the absolute worst! Your health is the most important thing. And congrats on your house! That is an awesome thing. No one will blame you for postponing or scaling back. You could always do a civil ceremony then have a big carnival blowout later! Maybe a reception or even an anniversary party. It’ll be ok, I promise! Your man sounds super sweet about it. You’re a lucky girl. 🙂
We’re here when you need us!!

@smileyd:it’d be different if I knew we’d have 3-5k by then. We just don’t know. My dental surgery is going to be at least 8k.
Thank you guys. I haven’t even told our family or bridal party yet.

I should give Mr. A. tons of credit here. He is being as kind as possible to me tonight-even taking us and the kids away to his family’s lake house for the weekend.

Aw, I’m so sorry to hear that.
If you can’t make the wedding work in the near future, what about a carnival-themed housewarming? You could use some of the same ideas, but not worry about feeding people more than snacky food.

Awww sweetie. (((((hugs))))) Why not do a court house quickie and then a family carnival celebration down the road? I love that he doesn’t want to take the dream for you, what a sweetheart.

@SoontobeMrsA: I’m so sorry to hear that! 🙁 I was even a “follower” on your blog you posted. You have to do what’s right financially, and I understand that, I’m so happy your Fiance is being supportive. I think if you guys went to the courthouse then did a reception in a few years it might work(???). We would have if Fiance had lost his job any earlier, unfortunately he lost his job 3 months before the wedding and it was too late to cancel everything. I’ll be thinking about you!

Oh noes!!! So sorry hun! But your guy is so supportive and that is a wonderful thing and exactly what you need right now. You can always do a quickie courthouse thing and a carnival vow renewal! I also like the idea of the carnival house warming. Just make sure there are funnel cakes! 😀

Aww, I’m so sorry! We all know how excited you were. Does your new house have a backyard big enough to hold a scaled down carnival wedding?

@UpstateCait: No, our new house lot is small.
We can use his parents lake house in New Husband but it’ll probably be summer of 2013 now.
