There is a point in wedding planning when you realise you just can’t please everyone.
Excitement grabbed me when I saw a theme start to come together on my Pinterest board. It was vintage, pastel, rustic. I loved it! My big sister gave me a few raised eyebrows. She liked the mix n match BM colours (2 in light pink, 2 in mushroom) but hated the light grey suits and centrepieces. She thought a 7 piece Motown band was extravagant but thought I was crazy for not having a pianist play while we ate. My mum hated the BM colours (“they are not bridesmaids if they are not wearing the same dress”) but loved the sparkler send off. She looked disapproving when I showed her the lace trim veil I had fallen in love with. Don’t get me started on the hairstyle I picked out!
But I will not be disheartened! The wedding will be fantastic and so long as I love it, and FI loves it- who cares?!?!?

Exactly! The day belongs to you and him, it’s what you two want that matters 🙂

It’s not that you don’t care- it’s just that this is your wedding, not theirs. They had or will have their chance and all weddings don’t need to come from the same cookie cutter.

Good for you! My grandma didn’t like my dress AT ALL when I took her shopping. Don’t care (and I don’t understand, because I think my dress is awesome!).
As long as your wedding is what you wanted it to be in the end, everyone will love everything because they love you. And if they don’t, well, that doesn’t really matter, anyway.

*We* sure as hell don’t care. We care about our guests having good food and drinks and being comfortable…but their opinion on theme or formality is neither here nor there, since it’s not their wedding.
We’ve already heard “tacky” about my dress, BBQ, a backyard reception and plastic plates that we’ve just embraced the term affectionately at this point.
