Hi! Are you Dutch? I am curretly living in Amsterdam and my Fiance is Dutch. I find it really hard to be a young bride (i am nearly 23, he is 26) as most people tend to get married after 30. Somertimes I am hurt by how people thimk like my wedding/ mariage is not serious….

Your friends and family aren’t coming because of a castle; they are coming to celebrate your marriage, so really it doesn’t matter where you actually do it.
Start researching NOW and you’ll find something.

Oh, sweetie! I really feel for you! Lots of love and hugs coming your way! I can’t imagine that happening. I pray that there is a solution out there for you. I am not a young bride, but I do get the family thing. It seems when I bring up the wedding, people tune me out, like it isn’t happening or something. It gets frustrating. I don’t want any money, just support. You have support on here, from what I have been reading. I hope it all works out, and keep us all posted.

Sweet Jesus! I’m so so sorry. 🙁 That is quite the combination of events and circumstances. Since you have people travelling already, what if you had a private elopement ceremony and took a smaller group out for dinner?
If it helps, we had a secret elopement ceremony before our destination wedding and it is maybe my number one favourite memory. Not just of our relationship, but EVER. It was just the two of us and a couple of really nice ladies (that we didn’t know) acting as our witnesses. SO super romantic. We wore jeans and t-shirts and then went for ice cream after. I’ve never been so happy as that day.
Again, I’m so sorry! This is freaking awful. You’ll get through this. You can! It’s going to be ok, and then one day soon you’ll be married, and you’ll get that degree, and everything will work out one way or another. Many internet hugs going your way.

Aww thank you so much Bees! You will not believe how much strength I get out of all your sweet posts. We went to see a venue today. It is not my first choice but it’s cute though and my fiance likes it more than our venue. I think he only says so because he just wants me to fall in love with it but it’s actually quite nice if I think about it. It’s also a castle but much smaller. It hasn’t got the atmosphere and ellegance of the first castle. It gives me a feeling like I’m in Italy in the Toscane. I think I’m doubting it because I don’t know if we can afford it yet. I’m affraid to fall in love with it just yet. The people were very nice and willing to help in every way. It was great that we could come right away today so that’s good too. We will hear the price either tonight or tomorrow first thing. There was a bride there when we were looking (she was preparing the venue for her wedding tomorrow). She knew my initial venue and she had chosen for this one. It was good to hear why etc. Ohhhhh girls… I hope it soooooooooo much. I spend every second today. Contacted 15 venues. Contacted lawyers etc. Had a 3 hour presentation. I can’t believe I’m still standing. We have a top 3 now. I will keep you updated. We will have to chose this week. I’m just putting hard deadlines to everything.
Again girls, thanks for the support it means the world!

OMG, this is so terrible. I am so sorry! This is a horror story. I think someone invented wedding insurance just for situations like this, but that’s all 20/20 in hindsight now. All you can do is cut your losses and move on. Maybe just have a small courthouse ceremony and then spend any other money earmarked for the wedding on a nice honeymoon? I am so so sorry. I wish there was something I could do to help you.
