So much stress already! The overly helpful mother-in-law wanting to do everything and not listening to my opinions. Not exactly happy with my bridal party. I do not want as many people as we asked to be in the wedding. My fiance and I are thinking about going to the court house…which isnt what I really want to do :/
I know its hard to tell people that we dont want them in the wedding, but Im so stressed about that, and my mother-in-law will not get off my back.

What about a destination wedding instead? Run away to Jamaica for a few days and whoever can make it makes it!

Know how you are feeling, I am about to cancel my wedding in about 40mins. My mother has turned it into a big show off party for her, inviting 58 people i dont know among other things (that would turn this into a huge post).
So I am going to talk to her when she gets home and cancel the whole thing and try and figure out where to go from here.
Think I’m about to be exiled from the family.
You have to do whats best for you and your hubby, you don’t want to look back on your wedding in 40 years and regret it or wish you had done things differently.

I think that you need to be firm with what you feel and how you invision you and your FI day.
I started planning a very large wedding with tons of people we didn’t even know.
I made the decision to have a very small wedding after our large venue closed.
I am so happy now about everything. We are having under 50 people (including us and our family). And going for dinner after our short in the park ceremony.
And there are some people who don’t understand and that is OK with me. I have done all the explaining I can. In the end, it is what made me and my FI happy.

Have the wedding you and your future husband desire, not what other’s think you should have. It is your day and your entitled to celebrate it as you please. Best wishes!

We are having a private ceremony, with a photographer and one witness. And then we are going to have a big bash to celebrate our marriage, probably a few weeks after the official ceremony. We really want the wedding to be just about us, just like our marriage will be, and the party to be about the community. I think it’s a good compromise. We’ve told the family so far and they’ve been pretty understanding. Good luck with your decisions, it’s so hard to try to please everyone.
