Wow, that is frusterating. My family hasn’t been super supportive, but they haven’t been putting anything down either. I’m sorry you have to deal with it, and you do have the right to do it your way! I am glad you are not letting all their comments begin to control your planning! I think you have a great handle on everything, even if the situation kind of sucks.

My family and friends have kind of been negative.  Every time I tell anyone about an idea I have for my theme, they say, “Why can’t you just get married?  I don’t understand why you need a ‘theme'” in a real snotty tone.  Ugh.  Because I WANT ONE!

@k1cart: yeah, that sounds like my mother when I told her we were doing a fantasy themed wedding.  She tried to tell us we’d look back in 20 years and hate our photos. NOT LIKELY, Mom.  

My dad is just so layed-back and carefree it isn’t funny.  He’s just glad I’ve finally got someone who will “take care of” me.  My FI’s parents aren’t getting into it, lol.  (His mom has NO CLUE what to make of me, LOL!  His dad adores me and is probably the reason his mom isn’t badgering me about it.)

Just let the complaints roll over you and ignore them.  They aren’t paying and THEY aren’t the ones you have to please (that would be you and your FI 😉 ).  

Good luck!
