My mother has been horrible about this DW. I got into it with her on the phone yesterday when I was at work. She says that since this is my 2nd wedding (and people had to travel to GA for my 1st) that its an imposition to ask people to travel for my 2nd.
First of all, we are having an AHR as well for people who for whatever reason can't make it. How muvh easier can we make it for people to attend either the DW or AHR?!?!
It's driving me crazy, but I'm really trying not to let it get me down.
On a brighter note, I created our wedding website last night and today - and it looks great!

I couldn't take it and broke down crying stating, that in New Jersey, it costs soooo much money to have a nice, even moderate wedding and be able to invite our family and large group of friends. My parents do not have the money to help us with the wedding, and his do not either, and I have student loans to top it off....I am blessed to have found my soulmate, and doesn't that deserve a beautiful day that doesn't cost me upwards of $35,000? (In NJ, many people I know have had weddings, buffet style, on Fridays, trying to save, and have spent over $50,000).... Lillie... this is YOUR day... the two of you deserve what you want, and I am sure you would never tell someone else not to do something they've wanted for a long time... At the end of the day, family and friends should be happy that someone they care about found true love and companionship... bottom line...
Thank you for your words.
I'm just going with the flow and planning the wedding we want. If anyone says anything I ignore it and move on. I don't have time to hear peoples "suggestions". I will do what I want just like they did what they wanted for their wedding.
I'm lucky I have my sister and friends to be genuinely excited for me no matter what it costs to go away (which everyone does once a year anyway).
I'm sure my wedding (and all of our weddings) will turn out fine.
