I need to come up with a new venue! only have 7 months... My cousin, who just got engaged, loved my idea of using the local Verteran's Hall for a reception, and then booked her date just 7 weeks before my weeding....

So it's back to the drawing board... I need a place that is unique (in a small town) and can fit at least 200 people.... I was thinking a barn, but is that too overdone???

I love the barn idea. There are soo many cute DYI ideas you can find out there to make it our own. I think the only reason it may look overdone is the explosion of pintrest. If it is something you like go for it!

Scratch it, I don't need a venue. I've decided that we need a break and we won't be getting married.

He has always drank and smoked, but recently he had been drinking way to much all the time and smoking like a fire... and I believe he may be using pot as well... he was distant and unemotional, and then one night he blew up at me, and I don't tolerate that behavior. So I packed up my stuff and moved in with my parents. I'm sure that I'm ok. I think I mainly believed that I was perfect because I was so close to a wedding and that meant being able to start trying for a child. I decided that I didn't need a man (especially one that has anger issues) to get a child. or to be happy.

Good for you!

I'm sorry you had to go through that but am so glad you saw his problems before the wedding.

You made the right call. I'm sure these past days haven't been easy for you. I really admire your strength and your ability to think this through objectively, and to put your happiness above everything else. I hope you are getting support from family and friends, and that you are doing ok. Big hugs.
