Just changed my wedding date

Recommended Posts

I am soooo sad. I came to the sad realization that I was stressing waaaay too much trying to get the wedding together by June. We just got engaged this New Years and we were really really trying to get the wedding done before the summer. Little did I know ALL the work involved in putting a DW together! My FI still doesn't know all the work involved. He doesn't understand why I stress so much. So back to my story, there were so many things that weren't working out for us like

1) I still haven't found a reception site so haven't sent save the date cards or any notice

2) I haven't found a dress and many shops are telling me it takes 3 to 4 months for arrival and another 1 to 2 months for alterations.

3) Our church is requiring us to do some classes that will last at least 6 months and we need it done way sooner.

In addition, we decided that we were set on having an outdoor reception and found out it may be a little too hot in June for people to be comfortable.

 

Sooooo, after all those disappointing news we decided to move the date to Nov. I feel relieved but at the same time I am really really sad because I was so pumped and ready to go.

 

Has this happened to anyone?crybaby2.gif

i almost had to change my date recently...due to some family medical emergency. but thankfully it (so far) will still stick. but really don't focus on it too much it will only make you crazy....just know that now you can enjoy the process a little more and make informed decisions instead of rushed ones...have you decided where you are getting married?

Awww I know you're bummed but it will work out. You have time to be more creative as well as give your guests time to plan/budget for the trip.

 

BTW you mentioned classes, are you Catholic? If so, you may have to go outside of your parish but there are one day classes. (unless you want to take 6 months). The first church we contacted said 6 months, and our wedding was planned on kind of short notice too, so that wouldn't do. We contacted the diocese and they put us in touch with a church where we went on a Saturday from 9-5. It counts the same :o)

I'm sorry you're bummed. But you'll see - it will all work for the best. And your stress levels will be lower and all will be fine!

 

And we're here if you need us!

i think it's probably for the best. it's much better to be able to enjoy the months leading up to you wedding rather than spend your entire time engaged in a ball of stress. We've been engaged almost a year and our wedding is another 8 months away. I love how relaxed everything is!

Planning a wedding is no easy task. I too thought a DW would be simple to plan, but it's not. There's no rush to have a wedding. Take your time and do not stress. Remember, time goes by so quickly. You can plan your wedding for next June- it seems far away, but believe me, it's not !

I'm sorry you are disappointed. But, now you can relax and have the wedding you really want instead of setteling for things just beacuse of convienence or because they fit your time frame. Everything happens for a reason, I believe, so this is proabably for the best!

 

As far as your FI goes, you need to give him a calendar of things to do with a deadline. I've got Mike doing "baby-step" tasks about once a week. THe other day he put stamps on all of the envelopes.

 

They never really get it, so you just have to delegate. It gives him a chance to practice his "yes, dear" skills!

    • Hi Everyone, So, I was cleaning out my closet and realized that I never sold off my extra wedding OOT bag stuff from our wonderful DW.   46 Daily Spanish for Dummies 30 Pool colored OOT fabric bags - approximately 13in x 13in. They lay flat.  I used them for our wedding and they were perfect for everything we needed to fit in each bag. There’s a slight shade variation in the group; I’m guessing some were cut from a different bolt of fabric.  They are also a little wrinkled from storage and will probably be wrinkled from shipping. I have three additional ones, but they somehow got something on them (likely toddler related). If needed, I can try to wash it out and send those as well. 
    • I’m getting married in six months to my foreign girlfriend. I was advised by a friend that one of the things I need to do before saying I do is to get a prenuptial agreement. Basically it’s supposed to protect my assets and properties in case my relationship with my future wife goes down the drain. I don’t know though if this is an acceptable practice when marrying Kiev ladies. I don’t want to do it if it would be insulting on her end. I need advice on this. Please help me.
    • So we are currently looking for an all inclusive resort for the wedding. We have 60 guests and found all the Dreams resorts as options and all of them gave us a quote and discounted price since it’s off season etc. Resorts in Punta Canta gave us a reasonable price, Dominicus gave us a really good deal then La Romana Resort and Spa gave us their regular price and so hard to negotiate. Will someone tell us how special is this resort that they won’t give us a good discount when all my guests are staying in their resort for 5-8 days. We are bringing $$$ in their resort and not give us a discount?  What is so special with this resort?  Can somebody recommend a beautiful resort?
