Calling Off the Wedding
So, you’ve decided that the person you wanted to spend forever with is no longer right for you. You’re calling off the wedding and breaking your engagement. Now what? First, allow yourself time to let this all sink in and mourn the end of your relationship. Next, you have the unfortunate task of telling everyone else. Talk to your fiancé and determine who’s going to do what. You’ll need to cancel your vendors (caterer, photographer, florist, etc.) and notify the guests. If your wedding is fairly soon, it might be best to call guests rather than sending a letter, so they can change their travel plans as soon as possible. If you can’t manage doing this yourself, it’s okay to ask family members or friends to call on your behalf. A general explanation is okay, it’s not necessary to give details if you’re uncomfortable sharing them. Next, you’ll need to return the gifts and the ring. Above all, hang in there. We know this is a huge decision fraught with anxiety and pain. But it’s better to end it now, than to be miserable and have your relationship end in divorce. You’ll make it through this and these tips from eHow can help.
