- Wedding: July 2012
Im getting married in my parents backyard in the evening next July. Its going to be nice…but not ballroom-y (if you can understand that). My in laws however, want to throw my rehearsal dinner at the 4 Seasons Hotel.
I believe this venue is going to “compete” with my parents backyard setting. And I honestly dont feel comfortable having it there since I dont WANT my wedding to be this ultra formal affair. I would rather have the rehearsal at a normal restaurant….
I explained this to my FMIL, but she said that she wants a private room so people arent walking around (???) our tables and such. This doesnt bother me at all. Its not like people are going to sit down at our table grouping.
Another reason is I wont have alot of time the night before my wedding to spend hours socializing..my mom and I are doing the flowers and without a DOC or venue coordinator, all these responsibilities are going to fall on us.
How do I make my inlaws understand that the 4 Seasons (although beautiful) is a teensy bit inappropriate for my garden wedding?
