Bristol Palin is talking about her canceled wedding one week after her mother, former Alaska Governor Sarah Palin, announced that the wedding was called off.
Palin, 24, and Medal of Honor recipient Dakota Meyer, 26, got engaged earlier this year. Their wedding was scheduled for May 23. But, a few days before the big day, Sarah Palin said the couple had called the whole thing off.
“They have informed loved ones that unfortunately the announced celebration planned for May 23 will not be held,” Sarah Palin said in a statement posted to Facebook.
Sarah Palin wrote that their family and friends still planned to gather in Kentucky that day to “share a great bar-b-que” and to “celebrate life, in general!”
On Tuesday, Bristol took to her blog to talk about the canceled nuptials.
I feel like I need to address the elephant-in-the-room on this blog, since you guys have been with me through thick and thin. When I first got engaged, you were the first ones I wanted to tell.
I guess you have seen by now that the wedding — that was supposed to happen last weekend — was called off. I’m sure you’ve seen this has been all over the media, but this is a painful time for family and friends and I would just really appreciate your prayers.
I know God’s plan is greater than anything else, and Tripp and I are in Alaska beginning to rebuild our lives under much different circumstances than we anticipated.
Thank you for all of your love and support.
Why the couple called off the wedding remains unknown.
