I’m sorry you are dealing with this. My FI and I had a similar issue with his family and definitely considered eloping or planning something small without them. In the end, we decided that we deserved the wedding we wanted and it should be celebrated, not kept secret.  We also didn’t want to burn any bridges (that still exist) before we started our lives together.

I can tell you this- it will not be easy. My FI and I have a great, strong relationship but dealing with his family has always tested it, especially as we plan our wedding. Though it’s easier said than done, you have to do what works for you and your FI. Don’t let the insecurity of others (because unnecessary criticism usually comes from insecurity) stop you from having the wedding of your dreams. Stand your ground and stand up for you, your future husband and your decisions. In the end, you don’t have to please them. The important thing is that you are married and happy with your wedding day.

Now… if I could only take my own advice! Smile
