In my personal opinion, your’s is one of those situations that warrants a small intimate wedding of 6 to 12 persons that will celebrate your marriage and not cause you grief.  Don’t try to bring everyone together until you gain strength in your union.  Best wishes.

who says you have to have an engagement party or alcohol at the wedding?  it’s your wedding and you can decide to do what you think will make it run smoothly.  Plus maybe his family will be more welcoming once you’re engaged.  That’s kind of what happened with my FI’s family as far as getting to know eachother.  Don’t give up just yet.

I think if you talk to your mom, about your plans you may be surprised.  She may be needing some happy news, something to look forward to always seems to pick people up a bit. 

It’s tough, but i’m sure you’d like to have all the parties and the attention.  Maybe a restaurant?  Some dancing and dinner?
