My DW has been cancelled :(

This past week everyone started bailing out on the wedding, and FI and I took a really hard financial hit. We had paid the deposits for everyoneâ€™s trip which were nonrefundable (our guests were aware of this), and they donâ€™t feel obligated to reimburse us for this expense. To top it all off, the woman who had been dating FIâ€™s father for the past few years filed a lawsuit against his estate for money that she isnâ€™t even entitled to, and because of this FI and his sisters are all having to pay in money to the estate until the matter is settled. Because of this we are unable to afford all of the details that we wanted for our DW, which was getting rapidly expensive. Also, I am having personal issues with my parents, as they are in the middle of dissolving their marriage.
After sitting down and having a long conversation, Andy and I have decided that it is in the best interest of our sanity and financial future that we stay local and plan our wedding back home in Omaha. It has been one of the most difficult and heartbreaking decisions that I have ever had to make, but there comes a time when you have to compromise things that you may want in order to get things done.
We will still be going to Mexico in January, so I guess thatâ€™s good. Looks like Iâ€™ll just have a week of partying to do down there before the wedding. Idk, this has been so much to take in in such a short time, and Iâ€™d be lying if I said I werenâ€™t disappointed in how things turned out. Itâ€™s just disheartening when you put so much work into something, just to have everything come crashing down around you.
I am so grateful for all of the help that I have received through this forum. You women have been so informative and supportive of everything, from my troubles deciding on BM dresses, to helping me cope with my less than welcoming mother in law. It sounds so cheesy, but if it werenâ€™t for being able to get honest and in-biased feedback from you ladies I probably would have lost it by now.
I will be selling everything I had for my DW soon, and it looks like Iâ€™m back to square one on the planning front. We will be married on February 13, 2010 at St. Johnâ€™s Catholic Parish here in Nebraska. That gives me just about 4 and a half months to plan a wedding from scratch. WISH ME LUCK LADIES!

However it sounds like you have a plan going and the most important thing is that at the end of everything is that you'll be married and ready to start this new chapter of your life.
Good luck with all of your planning!

For now try to forget about what you're not going to get to do and focus on all the ways you can make your at home wedding special. I sure hope everything works out ok and wish you the best.
