Wedding Delay Update

Hey Everyone,


Let me first of all just say thanks to everyone who gave such warm words of encouragement when we postponed our wedding.Those words really helped.


Its been almost two months now since we made that decision and I can clearly see it was definately the right one. I have a clearer objective infront of me for what I need to accomplish this year. GOD's willing I'll be graduating in June with my associates degree. Then I'll be moving from my hometown to complete my bachelor's degree. Fortunately since I already started the bachelor's degree online, I only have one more year to finish after I move, YAY! I think I really needed this time to just focus on that. I think I was underestimating the total challenge of going to college.


It was more than just going to school and trying to keep up my GPA. I had to keep finding new ways to save money just so I could STAY in school. The total cost of me going to college was about $110,000. I managed to shave off $46,000 (and growing) from that through tons of beggin, borrowing and bargining and just good old fashioned "reading the fine print". I think adding the stress of wedding planning and a marriage which brings with it, finding somewhere to live, needing extra income and the possibility of an un-expected baby would have been over kill. I'm really feeling much more acomplished and at peace with myself these days. When that time finally comes for me and FI to tie the knot, I'll be SOOO ready! (don't worry I'm still looking up wedding colors on the side ;p )


Thanks again everyone for all your support!

I had been hoping things were going well for you - I'm so glad that they are... and so very glad to hear that you feel confident about your decision! I must say, it sounds like a nature, wise choice you made, and I'm sure that having this stress off of you will make you a better student and partner to your FI.

I wish you the best of luck with your degree! Definitely come back to us when you're ready to start planning again! And thanks for keeping us posted!

It is always a good sign when you make a decision you are stressing over and start to feel at peace - I've had to do that recently and I know how much good it does your heart and mind =)

So happy to hear you've come to peace with your decision and you see you've made the right choice.  


You have a lot on your plate!  That would be a lot to juggle and not wanting to short change any one element of demand, you'd have been drained, overwhelmed and exhausted by the end of it.  


Enjoy the time of your wedding planning when rolls around and until then, have fun with looking a stuff without the stress of it all!
