My FI and I got engaged in August, and started planning in like October. We have dates picked out, a venue, I got my dress - we're really in the thick of things. He doesn't love it (he hates huge parties), but he's excited and knows how big an event this is for the both of us.
However, then his mom (who was very ill), passed away at Thanksgiving. It was awful, and we're both struggling through it. And yet, there's a nagging part of me that knows that all these people want our decisions made (vendors, venues, dates are falling away...) I still want to make these decisions, but especially with Christmas this week, I really can't get him to talk about it (not that I've tried all that hard, either). He's just not there.
So what do I do? Wait it out and risk having to change all the previously made plans? I suppose, now that I write it down, that's the best option, but I still feel like we committed ourselves to a certain extent and I kind of feel like we're bailing, and I really don't want to do that.
