I REALLY want to have my ceremony in my church. The problem is that my FIs mother is Jehovah’s witness and will not set foot in my church (I am not JW). I really want to have her at the wedding to support my FI (his father passed away a few months ago). I will not have either parent..they have both passed (my mom just last year).
We have booked a nice location that can house ceremony and reception, but everytime I go to church, I am morning the fact that we will nto get mlarried there. My faith is just important to me and I dont want to cause conflict. My FI is not stressed either way.
Any suggestions or comments?

That’s a tough one. I would say if your faith is important to you both then that trumps fmil. Maybe she could just join you at the reception.

@bricon: I totally agree with this and if it doesn’t bother your FI either way than I say get married in the church. It’s not your choice that she won’t enter your church so don’t feel bad about it. She has faith in her religion and will honor it so you should do the same with yours.

thanks everyone…I spoke to FI again and he is firm that his mother will be fine just attending the reception. SOOO..I will be calling my Pastor tomorrow to arrange for our ceremony to be in the church. YAY!!
