Small beach weddings... and expectations
Posted 04 May 2010 - 03:31 PM
We aren't registering anywhere either, or having parties or anything. We wanted something lowkey, and as I am not close with my extended family, I told them we were inviting immediate family only - and it was fine.
When is your wedding?

Anyone have any parents that are very un-interested in anything to do with your wedding?? b/c thats the problem I have- and I am working to get past it and not be upset, because I cant force them to want to be involved. It just kinda hurts

You have taken the time to explain why you are having the kind of wedding you are having, you have extended invites to all you want to come. There really isn't anything else that you can do. People need to understand that this is your wedding and you and your FI will do it the way you want to.
On the flip side, has anyone offered to pay for a wedding stateside? Or to pay for the invites so that it can be more formal? I would be surprised if they have. Everyone is quick to offer their opinion but not open up their pockets. Have your small beach wedding cause that is what you want and what will make you happy. It is a difficult thing to have people being upset with you, but hey, LET THEM PICK A NUMBER AND GET IN LINE...
