- Wedding: December 1969
Things have been a bit hectic for our happy little couple….i quit a job, got a new job 2 weeks later to move 2 hours from where we were living, he quit his job, to find a new one and move here….offically moving to the new place last weekend (i had been surviving on an air mat for the last 3 weeks) My wedding planning was very much on the wayside. More and More as we were talking about the wedding I was unhappy with how things were progressing. Everything seemed to be on his families terms. The wedding was to take place at the church her grew up in (although he isnt the bit religious) We were looking at reception venues around his home town. I wasn’t really liking anything we were seeing. After venting to my mother she commented that the wedding is supposed to be more where I grew up….which I commented I understood that and I did not want to do it there as there was not accesability to hotels close by for people. After more thinking…the places we were looking at around his home did not really have access to hotels as well. We began looking in the city we currently live in… with many more options for venues as well as local hotels it seemed like a no brainer.
I talked with my FH about my feelings about things….how I felt it was all on his “turf” and how it should be on my “turf” Then I talked about how i really wanted it on “our turf” so no family felt one sided…He reassured me and commented that he doesnt care where we do anything as long as we get married.
What are peoples thoughts on this?
