I was laid off from my job the day after I booked my resort in March so I definitely know how you feel.
Doblauvelt and Sunset Bride1 - I'm in Central Jersey too - Big Pharma.
The way FI and I looked at it - we were getting married anyway, so we're continuing on the same way. I got my dress and shoes now, since I'm still getting paid. i'm looking at how I can do things in the most cost effective manner, and will be doing everything I can to maximize what my company offers in terms of career change assistance.
My best to everyone who is going through this right now. It totally stinks!

I don't think a DW has to be expensive. I'm pretty penny pinching normally anyway, so the biggest advice I can give is SCALE BACK. You can probably do everything you planned, you just might not be able to do it on the scale you planned. For instance, we aren't having a formal reception, just a cake/punch/champagne/cocktail hour. My girls are using carrying instead of flowers and I scoured the net til my nails broke off in search of a photographer whose style but was inexpensive.
Just make a list of what you want to have....and then go from there finding ways of having those things either done yourself, or via lower cost vendors. The ladies here are amazing and if you post a specific question about needing help finding something, you'll get it! Good luck!
