From what I read, I think there’s something more to it than money.

She says it’s too expensive to go, yet she will not let you help her pay for it even if this would be less expensive for you than a traditional wedding. It doesn’t add up.

I would write down the numbers with her and as you show her that it doesn’t make sense, ask her what really bothers her. It may be because she’s afraid of travelling? Or she’s upset that other family members won’t get to see you get married (I know both of these were bothering my mom; she eventually got over it as she understood how it was important for me to have her there).

You have time until the wedding, I hope she comes around!

I think you need to have a talk with your parents and get to the bottom of it.

Yay!! She got over the initial surprise/shock that her daughter will not have exactly what she imagined for a wedding. Awesome!
It will all work out for the best; however be prepared to hear some people criticize your choices along the way… but as long as the major players are on board, it’s all good!

@HoneyBear:It was also my mom’s issue with the DW. She had a blast and now talks about travelling together every time we see her!
