ok here goes,as ive said before we have six children between us and would like to do the dw wedding.we told our families who were dissapointed about not being able to come.I explained that it was because it would be expensive.I caved in a little and said well if you paid for yourselves and they joined me looking on line and were like yer they loved the dreams hotel in mexico with the dolphins.That just left us to pay for 3 children and ourselves.However that stacks up and FI wont entertain saying adults only as his 3 are all under 18.We end up paying 3 adults and 2 kids.plus the wedding package.At lunch today FI said lets forget it till next year see how much we can save etc.He also said hes not sure he wants everyone there as well just end up being on holiday not about us.(that comment saved him)so now how do i tell my parents, his and my three boys were going it alone.our original plan was to go to LA and theen fly to Hawaii i still love this idea i had looked at Mexico DR and then Cuba(much CHEAPER) but i think he thought hey this wasnt what we planned.I need help in selling the idea we go off come back and throwing a party in the garden.Hawaiian themed.Why didnt i keep to my original no were going alone .errrr help please
errr sounding off!!!

I am so sorry to read about this difficulty. I hope you and your FI remember that this is YOUR day! YOU TWO decide how you want it. If you want it to just be you guys then your family needs to be understanding. If you want your kids involved and thats it then they need to understand that too. You may get some grief but this is YOUR DAY!!

Lucy your right, and i have said to Josh my 16yr old look we dont think we can do the big mexico wedding as we need to pay 3 adults and two children.He wasnt impressed, and the idea of a hawaian themed party didnt bowl him over either.But hey ive said it so its done .Now just need to call my mum and dad.ill wait a few weeks as i have lots of time.I went to bed happier last night and FI was right even when my mum comes to stay for a week we have no time together she lives in ireland so i dont get to see here much hes right our wedding is about us and we can bring back hawaiian themed stuff to make a great party do the cake thing and dress the girls in flowergirl dreeses get there hair put up etc.Now i just need to research Hawaii and LA .THANKS FOR YOUR SUPPORT
