2 weeks until the wedding, disaster in the making
ISo we are T minus 2 weeks until the wedding, and things could not have been more wrong.
Originally, we planned to have a rustic barn wedding on my parents farm.
Then my mother dropped a bomb.
6 weeks ago (8 weeks until the wedding) my mother and father decided on a divorce. And it has gotten nasty. I found out 5 weeks ago (7 weeks until the wedding) that my father had cut off my mother completely with money, and that he had put the farm on the market.
We had to scramble and find a new venue and dig up thousands of dollars that we originally didn't have to pay because of that. The new venue is 3.5 hours away from where I live, and is too far for most of my friends to make it.
I informed my father that he would not be walking me down the aisle, and my grandfather that I hardly know is doing it instead. (there are other reasons my father is not walking me, but that was the last straw)
We managed to get the invites out a month away from the wedding and have only received 2 RSVP s so far.
My mother who was the only person helping with all of this, moved 4 hours away from me on Monday. (3 weeks before the wedding). She did this without any prior notice, and she tool my sisters who are my bridesmAids with her.
We had a disaster of a shower because my maid of honor forgot about it. I had to send out the invites to my own bridal shower.
We have no honeymoon planned because my fiancee "forgot" that it was his responsibility.
The man who was going to marry us told us last week that he couldn't do it after all, and we didn't have a back up plan.
Becausr of the sudden venue change we now have to find a new florist, dj, and place to stay.
And most of this is coming out of my pocket because my mother is putting all of her financial resources into their new home.
My fiancee hasn't really put much effort forward financially because he doesn't understand why we need table cloths or flowers or China or food.
I am so tempted to just call the whole thing off and elope instead. Except for its 2 weeks away and a little late to call anything off.
So I really REALLY could use some advice. I am at a loss on what to do or how to handle all of the frustration and dissappintment I am feeling.
