Wedding 5 months post MicroD??? advice...

so I posted this somewhere else but didnt get alot of feedback. we are getting married (has been planned now for almost 2 years), March 22 and i just had a microdisc on Oct 11 - so itll be a little over 5 months. right now im 5 weeks post op and altho i can stand and walk ALOT better than before surgery, im still not 100% - i can only stand/walk for about an hour at a time and have to rest/ice in between or i flare up. i still cant sit longer than 20 min and i gotta ice.
my question for all of you who have had a microd and had good outcomes or can remember how u felt around 5 months, does having a wedding seem possible. i meann i am going to be on my feet and sitting all day and night... and hopefully doing some dancing as well (nothing too crazy) and of course wearing a pretty heavy dress (ballgown type wedding dress). does this sound doable at 5 months?
im worried i wont be able to and we will have to postpone... which would suck as we already bought all our invitations (havent gone out yet) and my fiances grandma isnt in good health and is fairly old so id like to keep it in march - you never know what could happen....
if we move it wed have to move it 8 months or more away.... venues already booked up till then.
the point is, moving it is NOT ideal however idont want to reinjure myself either. advice??
