- Wedding: March 2011
So because of lack of money we changed to a small destination wedding to Rhode Island with a small reception at a rental home following the ceremony at a lighthouse (which a ceremony in the park is free). Everyone seems to be good with this except my father. My father always finds things wrong but he keeps suggesting new things. Find somewhere closer, stay at a hotel and go to a restaurant instead of the rental house and then have a reception for everyone on our original invite list when we get home (that wouldn’t be cheaper at all). He kept saying that people he knows can’t come. It sounds like a valid response only he told me multiple times his family wasn’t going to be at my wedding. So I asked who couldn’t come. He told me two of his friends and their families. I have never met these people and they were not on the invite list. I’m just frustrated because he keeps trying to find a way for his friends to be included in some sort of celebration (I told him they can throw us one if they really want to) and he’s more focused on them not coming then what is making me way less stressed out and actually way more excited.
