- Wedding: May 2015 - Fallbrook Hacienda
I’m getting married in May and have the venue booked. Nothing else just the venue and we have our wedding party picked out. Lately I’ve been thinking I wanna just cancel the wedding and go to mexico and get married there just us two! I want to change it just cuz I feel like no one I’m either one if our families wants to helps is out with the wedding , and we don’t want to spend all this money on our wedding and half the people don’t even show up. I say that because we had a big engagement party and people RSVP and didn’t show. Also my mom as sad as it is doesn’t want my fiancé to marry me . She says he can do better because I can’t cook and she says I have a temper and I’m gonna drive him away . I don’t really feel like our family cares about or wedding and is excited or happy for us. I just wanna get away and do out own thing and have the honey moon in the same trip. What are you’re thoughts?

If I was in your position, I’d go for it. You’re going to lose a little money on the venue, but nothing compared to everything you’d have to spend for the wedding if you actually went through with it. I would tell your parents that they can come if they want and be there to see you get married, but if not, it won’t bother you. I think that it sounds lovely to just go off and get married where you want with the man of your dreams!
Plus, it would save a TON of stress. I woudl love to do that, but I’m one of those people who’s always dreamed of a big wedding and know that I would kind of regret not having one. But if you’re not one of those people, why not save time and money and stress and get to spend more money on your honeymoon/rings or other things that are important?? 🙂

I’m so sorry to hear about these negative feelings surrounding your engagement. What have you always wanted? A small, intimate wedding, or a big party?
Im going through something similar and we debated the same thing. But in the end, we both have dreamed about having a big party and we’re going through with our wedding. It’s so easy to be clouded by the negative people and not see those who are so happy for you. I suggest you search out those who are truly happy for you and spend your energy on them. Their excitement will be contagious and you’ll get excited about your wedding and life together.
