Our entire wedding party has dumped us :o(
Posted 11 June 2008 - 11:29 AM
1. We have family spread across the country
2. We DO NOT want to get married where we currently live (no offense to the Sask girls, it's just b/c we're not from here)
3. We want a small wedding
4. We didn't want our families to influence our wedding (ex: inviting their friends that we don't know, saying we must do this and that, etc)
So now that my family knows, I've got the "I told you so" message coming across loud and clear and my parents are saying I should have the wedding back home in Newfoundland.
Which would be on the ocean, but it's the cold North Atlantic.
I don't know what we're going to do. We're considering a very tiny local wedding and then going to England & Ireland for a month next spring. We're still thinking about just us going down south, but going on a last-minute deal (we chose DR b/c my stepdad can't be on a plane for too long and it's the closet location to them).
We're also thinking about getting married in Quebec City, just heading there for a weekend. But I still don't know if my parents could make it.

I think you should say screw it and GO! Forget them! I can understand it may be expensive and some people can't come and shit happens...but if I were you I would go!
Do it for you & your man!

We are still 9 months away and there are lots of "of course we going" and "we wouldn't miss it" comments from friends and family, but when the time comes, I think it may just end up being my dad and his lady friend, H's dad and step-mom, and his mom and brother. We shall see, I could be wrong. And who knows! It may end up being just the two of us.
Either way, I wouldn't change a thing about what we are doing and you shouldn't either. Hiram and I started planning a traditional wedding and realized that it wasn't for either of us. We've never been on a vacation together and really wanted to go away and do things our way.
It's very tough to think that these people cannot make it to your big day, but that doesn't mean that they don't love you and want the very best for you and your future husband. Best of luck! Remember, this is your day.
