    I found out last night I'm pregnant we have been trying for a year but with two miscarriages and my illness never thought it would happen I've already had to delay my date till 2017 as we couldn't afford it, now what? Do we postpone all together or wait and see what happens and see maybe nearer the time? I can't wait to get married as this will be my one and only so just like most brides I want everything to my day perfect and right

    Firstly many congratulations!! What are your doubts? I see your wedding is not for another 31 months, so worrying about getting into your dress won't be an issue? You mentioned holding off initially due to money. I know babies are expensive, but you could re-evaluate your budget? From what I learned about weddings is not to listen to everyone that tells you you MUST have this, and you MUST have that. It's a lucrative industry, and the best thing is to just do what you want. It doesn't have to cost the earth, and can still be amazing.

    Congratulations! I wouldn't make any hasty decisions right now. I guess your main concern is the money? Like clairenina said above, you could maybe look at re-evaluating your budget and maybe cut down/compromise in a few areas. There is nothing more important than having your little babba - your wedding would be the icing on the cake, not THE main event so to speak, it would be perfect however much money you decided to spend on it! I would hold off on cancelling/rearranging it again - maybe don't actively continue planning it at the mo, but don't make any rash decisions as you still have pleeeenty of time and you don't want to regret it x

    Congratulations! How exciting!

    As others have said you have a while until your wedding yet so I wouldn't make any rash decisions, maybe wait until a while into 2015 and see how things are looking money wise. I am sure if you cut down on a few things for the wedding and maybe re-think your budget you could keep your wedding date :) x

    COngratulations.

    The wedding does not have to cost the earth. I am sure if you were to explain to some they would understand and help you. Just have a small event including family and the odd close friends, hold it at someone's house if need be in the garden if they have a big enough garden, registry office wedding, get everyone to help with food, between everyone I am sure you will end up with a lot of food, etc. It's what you make it.

    Firstly congrats!
    Secondly, don't panic about the date of the wedding. You have plenty of time, and as others have said a wedding is what you make it. It doesn't have to cost the earth, at the end of the day you get to marry the person of your dreams :)

    Congratulations!

    Like you I discovered I was pregnant whilst planning our big day, after three longs years and fertility treatment. We were meant to get married on April 25th next year but with baby due on the 17th of April, we had to change the date.

    Money was our biggest concern but with the help of our family we've moved it forward and get married in 7 weeks when I'll be 29 weeks! As you've got so long I'd wait until baby is here and re-evaluate as the other ladies have said. We've cut our budget massively and have spent about £2000. We had to cut our day guests down a bit and change our spring hog roast for afternoon tea, scrap the marquee we'd booked and just have the hall and make all of our decorations ourselves.

    It can be done but enjoy being pregnant, it goes too quickly. Xx

    Congratulations! As your wedding is so far off yet I think you should take each day as it comes, get the pregnancy over with and then re evaluate, even if you have to scope things down slightly there's no reason why you shouldn't be able to still have it when you've planned to x

    Congratulations on the pregnancy! I would agree with the others, you have plenty of time until your wedding, so see how your finances are closer to the time. You will have to rethink your budget, as you will spend a lot of money and the baby, and you might have a reduced income on maternity leave. However you have a lot of time to work out how to do the wedding of your dreams on a shoestring budget. Many brides do that, and I know that elsewhere on the forum there are a lot of tips about saving money.
