Family not approving
Posted 26 June 2008 - 11:42 AM
I'm still hoping my grandma will come but I can't stop everything because of that as much as I love her.
We are doing what we want and I am going to enjoy the planning!
Plus we are having a Church wedding that my grandma will definitely come too. My moms problem?? I probably will not wear my wedding dress..there is always something!
Thank you all again!

This is hilarious in a way because my family, who are VERY traditional, are totally cool with the idea. In fact, my mom cried when I told her that I wanted a special intimate wedding with close family and friends. She thought the idea was special because the focus was on having our wedding with the people who mean the most to us and not on some big ridicuolous event that 200 people would attend. FH family is from NY and much more liberal in their viewpoints. Frankly, I think FH stepmom wants to be able to have all her friends to our wedding and knows that they will not get an invite.
Best advice = keep focused on YOU and what YOU and FH want to do. It is a celebration of your love and commitment, not anyone else's. You never want to regret not doing what you want to do.

I'm getting married in the Church a couple of weeks before we leave and having a small dinner with immediate family after. I thought that would be enough to satisfy her. I honestly think she cares about what other people think.

Besides, I'm still convinced that the people who have complained the most will be the people raving about it when it's over

I love everyone in my family dearly, but the fact of the matter is that as long as I am there with the love of my life and our parents, I don't care about anything else. I've watched too many of my friends get caught up in their wedding that they forgot why they were having one, and I refuse to do that. I believe my mom will never understand and will always have little comments about the way I chose to do things, but I can't live my life with regrets about the most important day of my life, and I don't think anyone should. Life is too short!
