I understand them wanting a wedding for you, but I also understand having no money for it.  Are they willing to pay for it?  There have been some bees that have had some beautiful backyard weddings with just a few people.  They were every bit as stunning as some of the expensive ones.  So it is possible to have a beautiful wedding with just a little bit of money.

Congratulations!! Do what makes y’all happy. That’s what I would do. I think your family should understand and support you in whatever decision you make.  I know several people who have gone to the courthouse, including my own parents!  Maybe a compromise or something, like a wedding you guys want and a small gathering of family and/or friends to celebrate.

Option 1 – Do the courthouse thing because that is what you want.  Other family members can attend if they want.  Then, afterwards your family can throw you a reception, maybe at a relative’s home, party room at an apartment building someone lives in, or maybe a community center at their expense because that is what they want.

Option 2 – Have the wedding and reception in one of the above mentioned locations, again, at their expense.  It may cost a little more (or maybe it is comparable) because you will have to pay the officiant to come to the location.
