@lurkinggroom:  Send her here so that we can point out that if you two are paying for your own wedding she doesn’t have to do shit that her or your family wants her to do for the wedding.

Stop telling them what details you can, and just tell them when and where to show up!

Yep! You came to the right place.

Your bride-to-be needs to stand up for your wedding. She can listen to her family’s suggestions, but that’s all they need be: suggestions. Someone somewhere on this forum said it well: Tell them “Thank you for your suggestions! I’ll definitely think about them.”  And then ignore. 😀

Randy from Say Yes to the Dress, says that if you are old enough to have a wedding, you are old enough to have the wedding you want.

Is it safe to assume that the two of you are paying for the wedding? I would think so at your age. Then you make the decisions

Many parents make their judgements based on what wedding traditions were at the time they got married. Have the wedding you want, and you will more than likely be surprised at how much they enjoy themselves at the wedding.
