@gillykat824:  Who is paying for the wedding? If your parents are paying, it does give them more of a say in how the money is spent.

It’s not wrong to hold the wedding anywhere. Every choice has its’ own implications.

A wedding that is 3 hrs away means all your guests will incur extra expenses as they will have to get a hotel room. That may influence their decision to attend or to decline.

@gillykat824:  3 hours IS a long way to travel, but then again people have over a year to plan this trip.

As for your grandfather, if he can go hunting up there he can find a ride. Or you can provie him transportation.

If someone brings that up, just nicely say “the wedding place is closer than his usual hunting spot so it works out”

As for stepmother, a nice “this is what we what’ repeated ad nasuem followed by “mmmhmmms” will suffice hahahah.

@gillykat824:  Often it is just the disconnect between today’s weddings and weddings of their generation.Most people backin the day got marriedin the bride’s hometown.

Acknowledge their concerns,  then carryonplanning your wedding.they had the chance

to plan when it was their wedding.
