The exciting news is my SO and I are planning on getting married soon, I know he has the ring and a proposal is just weeks away!! 🙂 Although I don’t really have too much problems with his mother she can be a little overbearing at times, but for the most part I know how to handle her and I don’t let her get to me! Plus it helps that she moved 10 hrs away! Lol!! Heres the problem tho! We’ve been talking about what we’d like for our wedding for months now and have decided that considering ALL of my family is from out of estate and most if our friends and his family is of rom out of town we want to keep things as simple as possible. Well I love a nautical theme for the wedding and he does too and I by chance, they sent me a flyer, saw that we can get married on a yacht for not much more than what we were budgeting and it includes EVERYTHING including a DJ, wedding planner and both reception and rehearsal dinners as well as decorations, etc! We love how convenient and unique that will be, BUT he remembered his mom hates boats and is worried she will refuse to come if we do that! We talked and other than that he really wants to diet married in a yacht as well! Now I know it’s his mother and by all means I want her there but at the same time I don’t want to sacrifice the wedding if my dress just because she doesn’t like boats! She’s already told us what day of the week and eve the actual date she wants us to get married on and I’m willing to go along with that if she’s willing to go along with the yacht wedding but how do I approach her about this? I told my SO I’d talk to her about it, just cuz she stresses him out enough about things and I can be a little more diplomatic about things than he is! How should I approach this without it being a big figknow he’s told me he wants me to have the wedding of my dreams but if course I know he wants his mother there as well and I don’t want him to feel like he has to choose between us and I’m afraid, although she loves me, that she’d make him feel like he does have to choose! And considering he’d NEVER choose that’d just stress him out! What do I do??? I really want to get married on a yacht, it truly would be a dream come true for me but I don’t want to have to fight with her either! 🙁 ADVICE??? P.S. And yes I know some of you will probably say no point in worrying about that until the actual engagement but considering the date she picked that we’re willing to agree to is only six months away I’m trying to nail down as many details as possible so when he does propose we clan start booking things instead if still being in the deciding stage!
