- Wedding: May 2013
So… I got engaged when I was 17. and was with him for 4 and 1/2 years before he broke up with me… We had an engagement party but never planned anything for our wedding, never even picked a date. At 26 I have now found the PERFECT man (mostly 🙂 ) and we have 60% of our wedding booked. My mother is still in denial that I am actually going to marry him. She and my father said they will pay for 75% of my wedding (YES!) but my mother keeps saying that “she’s not ready to give me the money”. She randomly says things about “if he is not there anymore” or “if you two aren’t together anymore” as well. (SO frustrating!) I know she is in denial but I have told her a million times how this is COMPLETELY different and this is going to happen.
as you can see our date is 5/4/13 and I would like to have a small family get together to celebrate our engagement this May or June. My mother says “Well if you do I am not having it at my house, and I’m not going to be paying for any of it”. I LIVE AT HOME! Where else am I supposed to have it????? His parents have a VERY SMALL house and he lives at home right now too….. WTH.
So I really don’t know what to do. Paying for it is not a big problem but I dont want to rent a hall when I have a perfectly good back yard. (My parents house is pretty big too, its not like they dont have the room…..
