My only advice would be to save up and pay for your own wedding. That will keep other’s expectations at bay. Otherwise, it’s hard to argue…

You just described my first wedding.  My parents paid for it and it was over the top.  I actually wanted something very small and intimate.  I spent the 14 month engagement SO incredibly stressed.  I fought with my mother, my Fiance, and lost 20 pounds (which i did not need to lose), and had chest pains.  The guest list was out of control.  His family was baptist and almost did not come because we were married by a (female) non-denominational minister and had booze at the reception. 

I know it’s so exciting when your parents offer such a generous gift but if there is already that much conflict I would pay for it myself and have a smaller wedding.


Good luck : )
