We canceled our wedding...

Recommended Posts

Sorry! I cant imagine how devastated you must be right now. I know you are upset but dont lose sight of the reason for this wedding and that is for you and your FI to make a lifelong commitment to each other because of your love for each other.

With the amount of guests that were canceling, it didnâ€t make sense to have it anymore. My mother is recovering from breast cancer and canâ€t afford to get sick, so she wouldnâ€t have been there. My FIâ€s parents canceled, my sister canceled. Ugh. We had 41 people planning on attending our wedding that is less than two weeks away. I know we could have just gone and had it been who ever showed up, but we couldnâ€t. FI also didnâ€t want to risk anything. I know all is fine in Cabo, but we were worried about the travel there and back. I am sure we all would have been fine, but why take any chances? It would have been a constant worry the entire time we were there and then when we got home. I was told by my bosses not to come back to work for awhile to make sure all was ok if I did end up going. To me, that isnâ€t what all this is about. I stopped crying about it now and am just numb now. I feel like crawling under a rock and staying there. Thanks for letting me vent ladies. I need some pick me ups right now. I canâ€t stop thinking about the amount of time, money, tears and sweat that I put into this wedding and fear all would have been just fine had we gone. I hate the swine flu. shots.gif
I am so sorry to here this-I can tell you from first hand that no matter what anyone says it is not going to make you feel any better. We were in the same boat with our guests. In the end, we decided even if it was just the 2 of us we were doing it...can you and your FI just do something private by yourself? I have a feeling in 2 months from now, we are going to look back on this swine flu and laugh about how everyone made such a big deal and it was nothing...
It is ok to cry-I still do...I told Fiance that I was going to mourn my wedding and he laughed.
Cheer up-you still can do something amazing.
IF you need anyone to vent to-email me :)

I can understand how devastated you must be feeling right now, especially after all the planning and all the excitement regarding your wedding. I had a destination wedding and I would have felt the same it had happened to us. Whatever happens, I am sure there will an opportunity in the future to get together again with your loved ones and do something special. If you are intent on having a beach wedding, there are also beautiful beaches here in the US. Whatever your plans may be, it will all work out someday. What is most important is that you will be sharing your life with the man you love. For so many out there, true love remains elusive. I wish you all the happiness.

 

Best,

 

Jessica

Hi Michele,

 

I still feel really sad for you. I feel like I know you because we shared the same wedding weekend. I know you made a sane decision but I know it hurts. You are in my thoughts. I'm still hanging on to my wedding date for now. Please feel free to mail me for support.

I am so sorry that you have to go through this! My heart really goes out to everyone who's wedding is altered because of this stupid flu cry.gif But I think everyone should just remember that we are really fortunate to be here, to be healthy and to be with people that we love. The wedding is important, but the MOST IMPORTANT thing is that you're getting married to your soul mate and best friend, and that regardless how or where you get to have your wedding it will be beautiful, amazing and the happiest day of your life. It will work out in the end, and maybe you're going to have an even more amazing wedding day because of it. Everything happens for a reason. **BIG HUGGS**

    • 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?
