So sorry to hear about this. Hopefully all will go well with your surgeries. It sounds like you’re making a smart but difficult decision–sometimes when things don’t go as planned, we have to do what we have to do. I hope it all works out well for you two and you will get the wedding you want at the time that’s right for you.

@SoontobeMrsA: Awwwww….big hugs to one of my favorite bees!!! I’m disappointed for you, but you have to take care of business, so to speak. Please know that we’ll be here when the time comes to continue the planning process (in whatever format you desire). Just remember, to focus on what’s most important…love and good health!
P.S. Hope the pain goes away ASAP!!!!!!!!!!!

I am so sorry you are having to go through this! Things always dont go as planned, and God has a better plan for yall! Everything wi work out! What about have something really small with just your daughter and yall and then having a big thing with friends and family once yall are more stabel?? Dont be gone for long! We will all miss you!
@menobride: They wouldnt have set their budget to 12 if they couldnt afford it, so I dont think that it is your place to tell her that 12 is too much for them to be spending if you dont know whats going on in their life. Obvisouly they could afford to spend that much before she found out she has to have mouth surgery. So its not your place to be telling her to grow up, when its you that needs to step back and look in the mirror.

Awww. That sucks. Really it does, that is why I am having a three year engagment. I mean I am more than lucky I live in Canada and I am insured, yay! But Fiance and I bought a condo last year that we are fixing up and there always seems to be something going wrong (most recently our stove is acting up). You’ll get your dream wedding someday. I know you will.

- Wedding: June 2011 - Sydney, Australia
I’m so sorry. That is just heartbreaking. 🙁
Can you compromise with a small wedding now & a bigger celebration/vow renewal with your awesome theme ideas once you’re back with the saving again?

Oh Honey!!!! I’m so sorry!!! Wish I could make you feel better! ((HUGS))

Oh no 🙁 I’m so sorry to hear that, I loved your carnival related posts! What are the things that you really want in a wedding? If all you really want (besides marrying the love of your life, of course) is, let’s say, an awesome dress, then you can totally buy a fancy shmancy dress and rock it during a courthouse ceremony and maybe a very intimate dinner with a few family members. In any event, I’m really sorry to hear what happened, and, on another note, I hope that you don’t hurt like a sunnafub*tch for too long after the surgery!

Okay, you’re going to think this is crazy, but I promise it’s not ….. you should look into going to Thailand for your dental surgery.
Seriously. Look into it. Thailand has awesome dental services for amazing prices. Even after the flight costs, I promise you’ll save money, and probably get exactly the same dental care. When I was living in Asia, we had business conferences there every winter, and I couldn’t believe how many Americans and Europeans came just to have dental surgery done!

Aww, I’m sorry! I loved all your carnival ideas (and I secretly wish I had the guts to do it too) and you’ve always been so helpful. I hope you come back when everything settles down. I agree with PP about maybe doing a courthouse ceremony now and doing a carnival theme vow renewal or reception in the summer of 2013. Either way though, I hope it all works out for you. And like @ellabee: said, if you enter any contests, PM me and I’ll vote for you 🙂

Oh no! I’m so sad to hear this setback for you 🙁 Sending lots of love and hugs…I hope in a few days you’ll feel better and be in a better place to figure things out. Health and family are most important, but it doesn’t lessen the disappointment. *hugs*

You guys are so wonderful 🙂 I thought maybe a few people would comment but look at all of you! It’s nice to know I have your support.
DDW: Hmm I’ve heard of that. But without sounding like too much of an idiot, what is Thailand like? Can I get by there on English?
Fiance keeps saying “please don’t cry baby. I still want to marry you!” I think right now what we will do is get married next summer as planned. The reception will just have to wait.

@SoontobeMrsA: Yes you can. My aunt and uncle lived in Thailand for 8 years. It is a wonderful western friendly country. They love tourists and SUCH amazing food!

@SoontobeMrsA: I’m sorry to hear this news! I love reading your posts and responses so hopefully you won’t take too long of a break? I understand about dental work, I am about to add up everything I paid last year in the hopes of claiming it on my taxes! Soft teeth+addiction to Diet Coke=bad results! Anyway, I hope you can still be excited about having bought a new home! Maybe you could post some pictures? I like the idea of doing something small now and then a big bash later.

I echo everyone else and also add my positive thoughts to you and yours. It sucks when you’ve planned and budgeted and then something comes a long and kicks you off your feet. It’s doubly awful that you’re in pain right now. 🙁
Take some time to mourn what you’ve looked forward to and put your heart and soul into. It’s completely understandable. Regroup, get healthy, and you’ll be stronger and feel more up to dealing with this and come up with a new and fantastical plan.
