:( Postponing Wedding from Jan 2011 to Jan 2012 !!!

Recommended Posts

Im so disheartened.....Riley and I just decided that we are putting the wedding off for another year!! I was getting more excited as 2010 drew closer bc then I would be only a year away...now its going to be 2 years and that is just sooooo far away. So now all of my planning and buying is at a standstill and Im afraid that what I like now I wont like in 2 years from now.....This is so frustrating sad.gif

 

Sometimes I wish we would just go off and get married without family and friends present as it would be so much easier. Bc now our wedding date interferes with other family members plans for summer vacations in 2010 and finances....its too much and they cant save for both. So now we have to bump the wedding another year out so that everyone is accomodated. And I can just see it....another year will pass and then again something else will interfere...there will be no pleasing everyone I know. But when this affects the immediate family...what else can we dohuh.gif

 

Ugh! I can't believe this....I never thought I would be the one on here postponing my wedding....On the bright side.....I will have more time to save too I guess... oh gosh I hope thats not the only positive to this....lol

 

Thanks for letting me vent!!!

Sorry about that, that must be a tough situation. Hopefully it all works out for the best and some more positives will show.

Sorry to hear that! You can always get married with just the 2 of you and have a big party with everyone else if it's important for you to get married sooner rather than later.

Could you change months so its not a full year more of a wait? Maybe do a yr and a half out, instead of 2yrs. It does suck but i guess you have to try to look on the bright side you get another year of saving and another year to plan.

The bright side of things is definitely it does give you more time to save and have the wedding of your dreams! Another idea could be the idea of getting married in 2011 and then doing like a vow renewal type thing in 2012? Its a really tough situation, tons of hugs headed your way through all of this!!

Well when you say immediate family I hope it's your parents you are accomodating, because IMO them and siblings are the only ones worth accomodating for. I changed my date to a month later after my parents complained it was too close after Christmas... then the new date pissed off my aunt because they are all in BC and it's the exact two weeks of the Vancouver Olympics... there is no pleasing everyone. They have to make the sacrifice for you, not the other way around.

And don't get me wrong, I am VERY close with my family, but I just refuse to put my life on hold for other people's plans. I say be more selfish.

Oh that really sucks! What an awful situation to be in sad.gif You're right though, something will always come up, it really doesn't matter when you plan for it. When you're trying to accomodate a large group, you can never please everyone (especially family)! I hope your family appreciates the sacrifice you're making for them!

I'm sorry to hear that, but remember no matter what you do you will never be able to accommodate everyone and you need to do what the two of you want in the end.

I totally understand how you are feeling, we will be changing our date from dec 1 , 2010 until July 2011. I was very disappointed but, then I figured this way there will be more money to spend and now we can stay for 2 weeks instead of 1. So look at the bright side of it. It will happen and it will be wonderful.
