When was/is the reception?

just be glad you had the wedding with the two of you the way you wanted and can be happy about that 🙂 the reception- think of it as a  party they are throwing.

((Hugs)) I think there will be some here who will think you are being ungrateful, but I get where you’re coming from and that you are upset that they gave you such a hard time.

@Pandora11:  mostly, but let me tell you it has been a huge issue with my FILs all the way. It got to the point where since my parents were paying for it we told the inlaws just to deal with my parents… my dad is really good at saying no. lol

So, I do feel your pain. It’s really hard when people seem to think that their opinions matter more than the couple… if it wasn’t so soon I’d almost say, wait for a reception that you and your dh can pay for yourselves and just decline their offer to pay (that way they have to back off) but this close, I’d imagine that wouldn’t be possible/easy 🙁
