You’re already married. If everything you’re planning isn’t important to you I would just cancel it. Like you said, you can have a vow renewal a few years down the road.

bottom line…it’s your Party. Do what makes you and your groom happy, not what everyone else wants. Because down the line, you may have regrets that your day wasn’t really your day, but instead a day for everyone else.


also, why did you have to plan your wedding “back home? if you live 3000 miles away, wouldn’t it be easier rot have it where you live, work and have friends? Just curious. 🙂

I’ll just say, I’ve been on the receiving end of a BFF getting married without telling me, and it sucks.  What would have made it a lot better for me would have been her being 100% honest with me about her feelings about not wanting to have a wedding, in advance of actually having the wedding.  Whatever you do, just please let your closest family know, and be as honest as you can!  (you can even say it’s your “dream” to elope, and you’d be crushed if you couldn’t…etc.)

I couldn’t imagine going trhough with this wedding now!  I’d say cancel it.  Would a party be OK – like a celebration party instead? 


As much as your MIL likes to give her opinion, tell it’s your life and wedding and you are adults who get to choose.  People wont be THAT hurt.  It’s just less money they have to spend anyway.
