Then my father in law tried making my fiance feel guilty by telling him that since the wedding is not in DR or in the states that he will not bring his 4 small siblings.
It's sad they cannot come but my fiance and I gave a year and a half notice that we were getting married in a random country so that they could start to save up so I do not want to hear the whole money excuse.
Either you come or you don't. Either you want to be there or you don't. All I need is my fiance and parents to be there for my day to be as perfect as it could possibly be. My fiance just needs his mother and sister to be there to be happy too so as long as those people are there, all is well.
I am tired of trying to please everyone because that is truly impossible. I guess I will be selfish for an occasion that is MY and my fiance's WEDDING.
I refuse to change what my fiance and I have already planned for anyone. We already downgraded the resort because we wanted it to be as affordable as possible for our guests. We are dealing with moving in together soon, buying furniture, paying for debt & school debt, plus the wedding. I just want afford anything more.
I also wish I had just eloped!
I'm sorry for all that drama. I have concluded it would be easier if we all eloped BUT when the day comes it will be worth it and beautiful. At least we know we aren't alone with our wedding drama seems everyone has some!
My best friend said to me last night "Holly whoever said wedding planning is fun has never planned a wedding, it's stressful, you'll want to cry, yell and elope at least a dozen more times, remember to breathe and know it'll all be worth it on your big day". She just got marred a year ago so I'm sure she's right!
