Wedding Wednesday: Date Change

Here is the email we sent out to our wedding party, family, and friends last week...

First of all we wanna say Thank You for all your excitement and support in us getting married! Each and everyone of you mean the world to us in your own special way!

After days of praying, crying, and lots of thinking we have decided to move our wedding date. This is not necessarily something I wanted to do but after several pro's & con's lists we have found this is best for us as we start our next journey in life together. Our main reason is due to the medical issues I was dealing with Feb, March, April, & May, I am all better now after the surgery I had in May! Due to all this I may be another semester behind in school (depending what the dean says about the online classes I was taking and a few assignments I wasn't able to complete) and also all the health bills that my parents have had to pay that were not expected expenses. Another major reason, if I end up a semester behind, I will not have a job when we get married and Brian will just be finishing school. As we get married and start our journey in life together our morals and responsibilities are to take on all our own bills and live on our own, this can't be done without an income and money saved... Get my drift?

We are working with Briscoe Manor right now, but our tentative date is September 17 2011, so only 4 months postponed :)

I appreciate & respect all your cares, thoughts, & concerns that you have shown! I am still upset and kinda mind boggled about this discussion. I hope everyone understands and supports our discussion.

P.S. Sorry I have not discussed this with anyone.. Wanted to be sure about the decision first

So there you have it ladies, you got the full on personal version of our decision to move our wedding date

I could not ask for a better wedding party & family! I got some of the BEST email replies and phone calls, here's a few pieces from some emails..

"I know that God will do nothing but glorify you and Brian in this situation and make your marriage just that much stronger. You are setting a good example of faith, patience and perseverance. I respect you guys so much for making this decision."

You don't know howww comforting that email made me feel about the situation!

"Four months difference is not a lot and the month of September is a beautiful one! I know that the decision was not an easy one but 5 years from now you will look back and you will only remember the special day that the two of you became one."

I couldn't of said it better myself! My parents got married in September and they celebrate 35 years this year, has to be a great month :)

"We're so proud of you guys! All your hard work is going to pay off and you'll be much happier walking down the isle with all your ducks in a row!"

Do you know how many people told me the ducks in a row thing? I've never heard it until this email was sent out..

Thanks to all my wonderful friends for being so supportive and no fear blog friends, lots of wedding post to still come, just 4 additional months of them, ha!

Yes, 4 months isn't a huge delay and it sounds like a responsible, well thought out decision. I admire you for being honest and putting aside your desires to do what truly will be best for both of you and your families. :) Glad you have such a great support system around you.

I think you are making a hard but good decision. Being married is hard and it is so much easier when other aspects of your life are in order, such as money, health and school. With that said not everyone thinks when it comes to these matters. You two are so smart and you really have it "together", I couldn't be more in awe of you! Your wedding will be amazing no matter when it is :)

Sounds totally reasonable and like all of your guests support you! You're going to have a beautiful wedding regardless of what month it's in!

Laura said...

Good decision! Plus it may not be as hot in September! Its win/win! :-)

Jen said...

Sweetie, you made the right decision! In the grand scheme of things, a few months is not a big deal. The most important thing is that you have your health and your love. Congrats to you both!!
