The only thing I can think of is just putting your foot down and not caring who you piss off. Thats what I'm about to do. We're having an AHR to keep his family happy. Not my choice, now his mother wants to dictate where we're having it.
I've come to the conclusion that keeping everyone happy is only going to make me miserable and not want to get married in the long run so I've decided to say f**k them! This is OUR wedding, not yours. You should be happy we're not running away and coming back to say "hi, we're married"
We've upset so many people by just saying we are inviting a few people only and its who we want not who the family want. If you don't like it sorry but its not your decision. Its our life and we will run it the way we want to!
FMIL was having a right go at one of her daughters apparently saying she had so many brothers and sisters SHE wanted to invite!! she won't tell me to my face because the answer will be go screw yourself! She's just had her wedding (another one!!) so she can poke off!!
Stick to your guns chick - just say to her if you don't lay off you are missing out on a lot and if you want an AHR so much you fecking well pay for it!! that will shut her the hell up lol
