I would focus on the money and logistics. Once he starts seeing how its not practical and really not affordable he may change his mind.

I think you should tell him everything you’ve just said here, and maybe get some prices of those things to back you up. He’ll be OK once he hears about the dollars it will cost! Smile

Just lay it out for him on paper. Show him in numbers what would be required to pull it off. You can do a comparison between the farm and the whatever other venue you are thinking of. Explain to him that other areas of the wedding would have to be cut if you chose to go the route of the farm because of the extra prices associated with bringing everything in.

Let us know how it goes. Good luck to you!

Yep, PPs are right. Show him exactly how much it will cost, how impractical it will be, how much work it will be, and/or how much it will inconvenience your guests. That usually makes my FI see the light…and it works on me, too, when I get a crazy idea!
