@mrsztobee:  just remind yourself…”who is paying for this wedding? oh thats right FI and I!” All that matters is that you are FI are happy. Period. End of Story. No need to explain yourself to anybody!


Happy Planning! Smile and congrats!

Any complaints from in-laws can go directly to your fiancee.  It’s his wedding too.  I’m tired of everyone bitching to the bride.  Have him address issues from his side and he can tell his family that bringing these issues to your attention comes off as unwelcoming and he won’t tolerate it.

Haterz gonna hate.


We certainly had doubters and complainers in our families, but in the end, you’d never have known.  They were just so happy on the day of to be there for us and were thrilled by how well it came together.


Smile, ignore them (or pass them off to your FI), and proudly own your choices!

Dirt off your shoulder, OP.  Just don’t listen to any of them.  Like a PP said, if you’re financing the wedding yourselves, you don’t have to answer to anyone.  And I agree with another PP – get your FI to field grumbles from his side of the family, and you handle the ones from your side.

Happy planning!
