As weird as this is going to sound, I am actually happy you guys are doing the right thing and postponing. I know a lot of people who would just say “screw it!” and take out a loan. Which could leave you in a worse position later on. I know this isn’t the best thing to happen, especially with everything else, but you will get your carnival wedding one day! And you have a man who is determined to give it to you!

It sounds like your FH is being really sweet and still wants to get married and give you the wedding of your dreams, which is SO nice! I second the PP’s ideas of looking into a dental school, or that care credit site. Hopefully you can find a way to get the dental work done as inexpensively as possible, and still keep planning for the wedding of your dreams.

Money sucks. But stay positive! You have a great man, a house, and soon a lovely healthy smile to flash around on your big day!

@KatyElle: Agreed! I vote for a courthouse wedding and then a big, carnival-themed party when you guys can afford it.

oh no! I’m so sorry bee. Well, you do get the man of your dreams AND a house. Still a pretty awesome deal. It must be super hard not having that wedding but it won’t affect who you are day to day, what will is your relationship and the new house and your new life.

I’m so sorry about your situation, but happy for you that you have a house and also that your fiance was thoughtful and sweet enough to say that he didn’t want to take it all away from you. I agree with some of the other bees that you can rebudget, and your fiance may come to realize that it won’t really be taking anything away from you because all thats really important to you is getting married to him! Good luck 🙂

I’m sorry to hear about this 🙁 If getting married is really important I might just have a civil ceremony to make it legal and throw a beautiful party down the road. You’re very lucky to have such a great fiance!

Please let us know what happens at the dental school (I’ve always been curious!)

My Fiance and I are finally closing on our house this week. We were really lucky to find a big house (bigger than we currently need, but we’ll fill it up with kids). After buying our house, we sat down and looked at what we’d like to do for a wedding. We realized we simply can’t afford to do what we’d like. So, we’ve decided to work within our means, scrap all wedding plans and hit the local courthouse as soon as we’re settled in our home.

To us, a house and a simple marriage within our means (without any help from anyone) is most important. A wedding party is just a day. I love my Fiance more than a wedding party and we really don’t think we’re giving anything up. It’s a day. A marriage and a house are a lifetime.

Priorities, I suppose.
