        We've only been planning for 3 months. But the first month when we announced the DW they said they weren't going because of the whole destination thing and the Catholic church issue. So, in reality they've been involved in our planning for 2 months. I'm sure they will get excited as we get closer to the date. They are just very odd to me. My family is very involved in the planning and are very excited about every detail. His family has something negative to say because it is not at a hall, with 400 of our family members with tres leches cake that includes the fountain and the 50 godparents to pay for everything. You get where I'm going with this right?!

          Yeah, I get it. We have some of those types in my fam and FI fam. I told them that I think its tacky to have godparents for every detail to pay for our wedding. If we want a wedding we will pay for it ourselves. We ended up inviting everyone, knowing that not everyone would make it. LOL, this was one of the reasons we chose a DW! You know what, in the end, those you want (and who want) will be there and those who talked shit will stay home regretting they missed your day!

            I totally agree with you! We for sure won't be missing them as we down margaritas by the pool side; they'll be missing out!! Yeah, we didn't want the godparents either. I actually thought his parents would be really proud at the fact that we didn't ask anyone to help us pay for the wedding. Just goes to show you will never please anyone no matter what you do!!
