    I'm so sorry to hear this!!! This is the last thing you guys need to be thinking about just before your wedding. If you need someone to talk to you could probably talk to Sylvia (syl115) she had this happen to her a month ago. She was an IT specialist and they were cutting back as well, but I think she had been working for them for 20 years! Hope everything works out for you! Enjoy your wedding!

          I'm really sorry you are going through this.
          I know it's hard but you know what they say, when one door closes another opens! :)
          Enjoy your wedding.
          When you guys come back home he can buckle down & focus & everything will work out!

              Ra'Shunda, I am so sorry to hear this. It seems to be happening everywhere. I know you didn't want this to happen before the wedding. I just experienced the same thing only it happened after I returned from my honeymoon. It was also in IT. I had been with the company for 21 years. It was a shock, but I am working it out. But don't worry, I'm sure he will find another job soon, maybe even better. I posted my resume on Monster and have been getting several calls and emails and I am not planning to return to work for a little while. So keep your chin up. It will be ok.

                    Thanks BDW for all of the words of encouragement. Our plan is to focus on our wedding (I'm glad we have all the money we need for it already saved up) and enjoy our honeymoon. I've even added a trip to the golf course on the honeymoon to help cheer him up. We will tackle this head on when we get back. He gets a little severance package that will last until Jan '09 so we're hoping that he'll get his dream job next.

                      Awww, I'm sorry to hear about that! This economy is really relentless right now. I keep hoping things are going to turn around but bad news seems to be everywhere

                      Sounds like you guys have a great plan of enjoying the wedding and honeymoon and worrying about it when you get home. You don't want all of your memories of this happy time to be clouded with worry.
