Bristol Palin Finally Breaks Her Silence About Ex-Fiancé Dakota Meyer

Former First Daughter of Alaska Bristol Palin was all set to tie the knot the past weekend with Medal of Honor recipient Dakota Meyer -- but she didn't. Now she's finally opening up about her canceled wedding, and hinting at her plans for the future.

Just days before the wedding, Bristol called the whole thing off. What we didn't know was whether it was a cancellation or a postponement, as the Palins and Meyers planned to go ahead with a joint party at the wedding location, the groom's family farm.

Former Alaska governor and GOP vice presidential candidate Sarah Palin posted the news to her Facebook on Monday, May 18, saying, "Bristol and Dakota couldn't be more thankful for the love and support of family and friends over the past months while preparing for their wedding. They have informed loved ones that unfortunately the announced celebration planned for May 23 will not be held."

She continued, "Many friends and family still look forward to getting together that day in Kentucky anyway -- and the Palins and Meyers are happily looking forward to still being at 'the old Kentucky home' on May 23 to celebrate life, in general!"

Bristol blogged about the canceled wedding on Tuesday, May 26, and from the sound of it, she and Dakota are done for good.

"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," she wrote.

She continued, "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."

While thanking everyone for their "love and support," Bristol made it pretty clear that she and her 6-year-old son are ready to start fresh. She concluded, "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."

As crazy as it is to cancel a wedding at the last minute like this, Bristol did the right thing if she didn't feel like it was the right thing to do. It takes guts to admit you've made a mistake, but it's better to back out than to keep living the lie that everything is OK.

I don't know what happened between Bristol and Dakota, but I wish each of them happiness.
