I went through something similar. As soon as we got engaged in December 2012 my parents got a little excited and started telling a ton of people to pack their bags. We are doing a large AHR in June and getting married in Mexico in April. One thing I have found is that while people may be "all about it" and say they are definitely going early on....when it comes down to it when the deposit on the room is due you will lose quite a few.
Anyone else about ready to call it all off?

I feel lucky... our parents are very supportive that we just want a small DW wedding with them and a few close friends. I struggle with what other people will think when they find out and aren't invited. Hopefully they will understand and respect that its our wedding and that how we wanted it.
I say, do whats important to you. Its your day and its the happiness that you desire.

My fiance asks me everytime I start to stress out "want to elope?" That seems to get my head back on track and helps to settle down all the nervous butterflies. No matter who comes, where your wedding is, at the end of that day you will be married to the man that has your heart and that's what is important or least that's what my friends keep telling

I would love to see their reactions if the situation was reversed & you were telling them how you think they should run & organize their wedding!

Geez. Makes all of our stuff seem pretty small in comparison and we did end up just the two of us. No witnesses, no bridal party, nothing and nobody lol We had the resort wedding coordinators as our witnesses. Yeah two strangers signed our marriage licence lol But you know what? We had a great time. They treated us like royalty I think because they felt sorry for us lol, and we had got married, which is what it was all about in the first place. Then everyone that said no showed up for our AHR, we got all the family pictures and it turned out alright.
Sometimes life is just that. Life and you just have to go along with it. I got what I wanted and that was marrying the absolute love of my life!
I said "yes" again to the love of my life at Grand Coral Beach Club, Playa del Carmen, Mexico on our 4th anniversary - October 20, 2015

Wow I'm so sorry to all your brides who are going through headaches, stress and drama! That is not what you need when you are planning the most exciting even of your lives. I agree with the ladies above, stick to your guns, remain true to yourselves and do what you want! It's your day and your pocketbook! You don't want to start your lives in debt either.
Please keep us posted, we're here to help and support you!

Ladies, hold firm - this isn't the end of the world! Just don't let anybody wrench YOUR big day away from you. It will go terrible if your heart's not in it, or if you're actively hating it. Whether it's parents or someone else who is trying to take control of your wedding and negatively affect it, you can't. Let them. Do it.
Be firm, or even harsh, but you'll be happy you dealt with it sooner rather than later. Good luck!

You only get married once (hopefully) make it about you (and your hubby) and what YOU want, not anyone else! Or else you won't be happy
