Hi! My HS Sweetheart and I have been together almost 10 years and decided that an elopement ceremony would be better. We’d rather do that than plan a big wedding since our famlies are pretty much spread out all over the US and in other countries! I will be moving out of the US “back home” to be with him since he had to move for work. Now–we both have family there but since his grandfather is a pastor he asked if it would be ok to have his gparents there and his dad… I honestly don’t know what to say or how to react because if they are there i’d feel bad that my parents aren’t. His dad is a great man and is always there for us. My Boyfriend or Best Friend mentioned that if he was there it would be something that he’d like his dad to be a part of since he missed out on so much of his life. My parents cant afford to travel or take vacation to be there. I ended up saying that I’d love for my grand parents to be there too (my dad’s parents). I had this big vision of getting married by ourselves on the beach…but his gpa is a pastor in his home town church so that makes this whole thing a touchy subject! I’m kind of frustrated!
We plan on having a big reception at a later date. I’d probably wear something fancy but it’ll be more of a cocktail party.
Thoughts on this? Thanks!
