- Wedding: December 2012
Can I just say that so far I have felt so blessed with the way both Fiance and I’s families have been acting. Seriously, I read some posts on here and feel so bad that a bride and groom have to go through some of the things their families drag them through. No, my family is NOT perfect but so far they have both been so respectfull of mine and FI’s wishes. For example, me and the Fiance are paying for the majority of the wedding. My mother is contributing an X amount and my FI’s mother is paying for the rehearsal dinner. So both sides understood 100% when we told them we had to keep the guest list down. My mom actually called wanting to invite a few people from our home church and offered to pay for them if they actually show up! I didn’t even have to mention that to her. It’s just so refreshing knowing that our families are on our side!
Yes, it’s early in the process and we may have a few more opinions set in as we get closer, but so far, it seems as though the consensus is, unless you want to shell out $$$, the decisions are going to be made by US! =)
What have your expeirences been like so far with family? For brides who are a lot closer (or past) their date, when did you see things become more stressful with family?
