the financial catastrophe in Cyprus

I’ve been MIA the last few weeks and the reason is that we are facing a true financial catastrophe in my country. Having something like this happen 100 days before the wedding is something pulled out of any bride’s nightmare. I’ve even thought of cancelling the whole thing, but we had deposits paid for most of the thinks months before and we can’t afford loosing that money too. Plus FI doesn’t even want to talk about cancelling, the invitations have already been printed ect.


So I will go on with the planning even thought I feel so disappointed and foul of fear for the future that the wedding is the last thing on my mind. I’m also thinking that PW will be a nice distraction from everything happening here.


Plus I’ve missed you all.

Thank you sweetie!!! Thinks are really bad here. The only hope is that people behaved with such maturity and responsibility it’s amazing. The international media were quite disappointed that there were no riots or bank-run. And that is promising. But as a very tiny country we don't have the resources to restore the economy as quickly as the big countries can.

It's scary isn't it - I am so lucky that we moved from England when we did, we got out just before things started going downhill there, a lot of our friends struggle just to afford their basic living expenses every month - my thoughts are with you and yours xx
