    If your mother is contributing to the wedding she does have some say.  Does she know that the marquee (US bees – that’s brit english for tent) will be out of your price range?

    Keep in mind that you may need to make a few more trips to your parents’ home town if you do decide to hold the wedding there.  Remind Mum that traveling so far takes up a large chunks of your precious days off.  See if you can gently convince her to let you host the reception closer to where you and Fiance live.

    It sounds like doing it back home just isn’t working out and the best option would be to getting married in your “new home”. If this is the case it’s best to let your mom know ASAP so she doesn’t keep building up expectations. She’ll get over it. And you will still have some hair left on your wedding day.

    Nods your parents will get over the church thing. I bluntly said to mine it’s my wedding not yours and I value your opinion but i’m going to do what suits us. You can either support me or not. My parents were disapointed but are now fully on board for my up comming wedding in October. Other than the curch issue my mum has similar taste to me anyway. No other problems yet.


    It’s hard but I’d love to hear what you choose to do.
