My opinion? Elope.  Really, your Fiance and you are the only ones that matter. If he is open to the idea, and you as well, then by all means.  You don’t want to be stressing out about drama on what should be the happiest day of yours lives.  So go and have an amazing honeymoon instead!!

My advice would be to really think about what an elopement will mean for the both of you decision wise. You have to do what will make you happy and stress free. Only the people paying should have a say. Planning is stressful and the thought of adding a alcohol problem only adds to the stress. You can still have a beautiful wedding via Destination Wedding. Try changing your location to somewhere like florida for those that dont travel out of country. Also you can always just elope and put money into a nice all inclusive package that has like web cast or videography. Then throw a party when you come back.


As far as your Mother-In-Law is concerned unless you do it her way she is not going to be happy with anything! Some people are like that when it comes to weddings, You just have to roll with it or stand your ground and say” When you pay you have a say!”


P.S  Your step mom was totally out of line if she made you feel uncomfortable. Next time ask her if you can talk to her privately and tell her you dont feel okay with her venting about your mom right in front of you. It’s a respect thing and she needs to respect you when it comes to this request especially since your mom doesn’t do it.
