I haven’t had to deal with that, but my mom did accuse me of sneaking off to elope when I decided to move to Portland to live with my Fiance. It was so frustrating because she always jumps to conclusions with me. So to get her back a little I sent her an e-mail on the price of getting married at Voodoo Donuts. She freaked out a little and it entertained me, so it worked out in the end.

I have never had someone tell me we should just elope. I wonder why they think that’s such a better idea for you guys?! Of course, it’s your wedding and you do it the way you want to- but that doesn’t stop the frustration from non supporting family and friends. Eventually you’ll just have to tell them to stop suggesting it because it’s not going to happen.

Everyone gives people such a hard time about their wedding- it just baffles me. Just wait until one of your parents for FI’s wants to invite a bagillion of their friends. Then you’ll really be steamed. I swear to God, when my kids/friends plan a wedding, I will be as supportive as humanly possible. It’s just not fair at all for someone to bash your ideas or make you think that your wedding isn’t “right” for them.

What hippocrates! Just tell them you are planning a wedding and if they don’t want to help/hear about it just say so. Vent to us, who needs negative input….wedding planning is stressful enough without people telling you to call the whole thing off!
