Any brides who postponed having a hard time with accepting their new date? And grieving their original one?
I felt okay about it for awhile, but the closer we get to our original date, the sadder I feel. My FH does not want to do a micro-wedding this summer (he has a small, spread-out family. Many of them are high-risk and they haven't gotten together for a happy occasion in over ten years. So he wants the big party with all of them there to be our actual wedding, which I totally understand). I've always wanted to get married in July. It's my favorite month and we met in July, and 15 months ago when we booked July 18, 2020, everything seemed so perfect.
When we made the difficult decision to postpone, our venue didn't have any dates until August 2021. It didn't seem financially worth it to try and find a new venue with July dates. After all, it's only a couple weeks' difference.
But letting go of the dream, and the fact that I thought we'd be married in just over 50 days instead of 400+...that's really hard.
I'm sure lots of you are feeling this way and perhaps this has been talked about ad nauseam in these forums. And I do feel lucky that we found a new date, that all our vendors were available, and we are less likely to be putting anyone at risk to have the wedding we planned (hopefully next summer is better). I just needed to vent a bit to people who understand. Thanks for listening!
