Are they paying for the wedding? My parents had little to no say in how we did our wedding, but we were the ones paying for it (and they didn’t have much to input anyway). It sounds like if they are paying for it, then they are very much looking at this as a party they are throwing that happens to be for your wedding, and unless you’ve got something to contribute, your opinions just aren’t going to matter as much. :/ <br /><br />Have you sat down and told them how this is all making you feel?

I’m dreading this for my wedding too. I’m also South Asian and FI is Chinese, so we are going to try and incorporate both cultures. I know it’s going to hit the fan though because my family is like 10x bigger than his. 

If your parents are paying for this then I don’t think you’ll have much say. I think you should as it is your big day but I find many South Asian parents consider a wedding as a huge party and an excuse to invite all the cousins rather than making it about the bride and groom. 

Best of luck! I hope they stop being indecisive.
