- Wedding: December 2012
So I’ve put previous posts about having an untraditional wedding. My fiance and I want to have an intimate ceremony at our house with immediate family and close friends. We are not having a bridal party/MOH or groomsmen/ bestman because we do not want any. Anyway, my older sister has been nothing but full of opinions.
I’ve asked her if she could make a toast during our reception as I would still like to have her be involved. I got an earful this morning that I am cheating myself of a special day because I’m not doing any traditional nuptial celebration such as a bacherlorette party or bridal shower. And since I do not have a bridal party I am on my own with planning my wedding. She also said asking her to make a toast to get her involved in my wedding is also a bunch of BS and hung up.
Again none of the traditional stuff matters to me except that I marry the man I love, and I don’t need a big wedding to for it to mean more. She’s my big sister so this really broke my heart that she is acting this way. I don’t understand why this bothers her so much when this is what I want.
Has anyone else been through something similar? How did you handle it?
