Awe hugs, I am sorry you had to make such a difficult decision.  I am glad you were able to figure this out with your fiance and wish you the best of luck moving forward.

 

Like others have said - maybe do a vow renewal in the DR? or do your honeymoon?

Have you considered other cheaper destinations like Mexico? or is that 100% off the table.

 

There are lots of great options in Calgary.  I know someone who recently married at Heritage Park, and next week at the zoo. Was a BM for someone who married at the Lougheed House, lots of great ideas.   Even the Deerfoot Inn and Casino for a reception!   

 

We are always here to chat, help out, and the like... please keep us posted.

Now that I finally logged back on... :)

 

We just booked the last date at Gunn's Dairy Barn in Heritage Park.  We also booked our photographer last night.

 

So the dream of a destination wedding has ended - now we are just hoping to do a honeymoon soon after the wedding (London/Paris we hope!!!).

July 4,2015. We were a bit hesitant doing it during stampede but we really had no choice!

Ohh wow! Hate to hear that your DW did come together like you planned but glad to hear you were able to still line up a date. You're still getting married regardless and that's really all that matters. London/Paris sounds like a wonderful honeymoon.

I think the nice thing is that destination or not, you will be getting married and your family and friends will be there :). I love the idea of a DW but if no one had been able to come I would have made the same choice as you :)

 

I think stampede is overrated haha. I would much rather go to a wedding ;)

I'm so sorry your dream had to be put aside. It's so difficult when you're dealing with family and friends.

But again, when it all boils down, you're still going to be marrying the love of your life and I'm sure you'll have a beautiful wedding!!

Good luck and all the best!

I said "yes" again to the love of my life at Grand Coral Beach Club, Playa del Carmen, Mexico on our 4th anniversary - October 20, 2015

@KAT2015 I'm so glad you came to a resolution and really hope it works out. You can't please everyone all of the time, so at least you and your fiancé are focusing on what you want first

    It is really sad to hear that you had to change things around, but at the same time I think that (reading your posts) you have found a way to become more comfortable with your decision. Even though the actual moment itself might have hurt, I think that you have to remember why you did it. Proud of your resolve! 


    Does anyone have any experience buying from http://www.gymsource.com/treadmills ?

    Since I already had a thread going here about our wedding troubles - I'd thought I'd add another little vent.  Even though I am not doing a DW anymore, I'm still poking around on the site - mostly because the support is great, the ideas translate to an at home wedding and the people are amazing!!!

     

    So after EVERYTHING we have been through in booking this wedding - from the DW cancellation, to the scrambling to find another venue, to booking our major aspects.... we were finally all caught up, moving forward and enjoying the wedding process....

     

    -until-

     

    My FI lost his job last week - out of nowhere, technically no cause - no warning.  And BOOM - our household income drops by more than 50%.....

     

    Honestly - how do you get a break in this world? So now I'm debating if I can even feel comfortable putting down a final $400 in deposits (hair/makeup, officiant, dj) when financially, we just took a HUGE hit.  

     

    On top of it - he is in an industry where you can't just find any job - its a long process to get a job, and most positions that he would be obtaining are still a 50% pay cut from his previous job since he had worked his way up there quite quickly.... his parents are willing to help, but I hate asking.

     

    Bah... just when you think you're in the clear....
