by at .

Bristol Palin and Dakota Meyer have called off their wedding, according to her mother, former Republican Vice Presidential nominee Sarah Palin.

Sarah confirmed the sad news on her Facebook page Monday:

"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."

However, the ex-Alaska Governor said, "They have informed loved ones that unfortunately the announced celebration planned will not be held."

Bristol Palin and Dakota Meyer had been set to wed May 23.

Sarah, who has yet to decide if she will join the list of 2016 presidential candidates, did not say if the wedding has been or would be rescheduled.

However, she said both the Palins and Meyers will still gather for a barbecue in Kentucky, the planned wedding location, to "celebrate life, in general!"

She also included the following statement from her daughter:

"Regarding salacious headlines in recent days about 'secret wives,' Dakota and I discussed our past relationships prior to our engagement."

"Dakota was legally divorced years ago, as any good reporter could and should have disclosed to readers," Palin said, appealing to people with "decency."

"As usual, false stories and dramatically written headlines begging controversy should be disregarded, and we have faith that our privacy will be respected."

It was reported last week that Meyer had married another woman, Cassandra Wain, in 2008, and had hidden his previous marriage from Bristol.

Neither Bristol nor Sarah said if the couple had ended their engagement, or their relationship, as a result of calling off the nuptials next weekend.

Bristol also posted a photo reading, "Trust in God's timing. It's better to wait a while and have things fall into place than to rush and have things fall apart."

That might indicate that things aren't over just yet.

This would've been the first marriage for Bristol, who has a child by Levi Johnston; he has since married and had two kids with Sunny Oglesby.
