I had to push back my wedding!!

Well I had to push back my wedding from Oct 23rd 2010 till April 09 2010.  I know it is not too much longer to waite but it still sucks.  My MIL is helping us pay for it and she wants more time to save. Dont get me wrong I appreciate her help but she is becoming pushy.  She even asked us to reconcider our maid of honor and best man choices!

    i hate to break it to you, but April comes before October.  Unless you've got a time machine, you won't be getting married on April 09 2010

    Going back in time eh <img src="http://cdn.cl9.vanillaforums.com/downloaded/ver1.0/content/scripts/tinymce/plugins/emotions/images/smiley-wink.gif" border="0" alt="Wink" title="Wink" /> That's pretty fancy!

    Honestly at this point I would just politel decline her assistance and have a smaller wedding you can afford. With money comes strings and she doesn't seem to be able to afford it anyways. You could also offer to help pay for the wedding and have your October wedding.

    Let's do the time warp again! Sorry, I just had to throw that out there. Anyway, OP I assume you meant April 2011 :)

    I know what you mean about wanting to get married and not waiting. I was ready to get married 3 months before our set date. Just think of it like this- you'll have more time to save and have awesome food and drinks!

    That sucks... especially since it is a little close to be pushing it back now.  Still.. it is what happens when you don't foot the bill yourself.

    Most of me wants to marry FI today.. the cost of the party makes me want to put it off another year.  I guess this is why we see so many JOP weddings followed by a reception one year later.  (don't worry... I am not one of them)

    My advice.. vent only to appropriate people (here was a good place) so it doesn't get back to MIL.. learn how to politely turn down her advice (she will give it to you for the rest of your life).. either have a small ceremony/reception you can afford now in October or graciously accept her money and wait until April.  I was born in April.. it is a good month!

    Have the wedding you want, and pay for it yourself.  Voila!  No strings attached.

    Since she's helping pay for your and your fiance's wedding, you have to consider that she can call some of the shots. As for your BM and MOH, they should be meaningful to you and your fiance, not necessarily to the MIL.  You might have to sit down and explain with your MIL what tasks which means standing by your side at your wedding, and maybe a speech at your wedding/reception. That's about it!

    I'm guessing it's April 09, 2011, instead.

    April 9th is my anniversary weekend. Stop stealing my thunder! I think you should push it back to April 2009 so you don't confuse your wedding with mine.

    You'll be happy for the extra planning time.

    And on a side note, if you're pushing it back so someone else can help you pay for your wedding, 6 months is a small price to pay.

    This is very true. More so if you want the big wedding. If not just go to city hall. I also had to push my wedding date to give us more time to save up for it (since we are also saving up for a house) and we aren't stressing over it.
