- Wedding: May 2014
Need some advice. I’ve been engaged since November, I’m not getting married until May 2014 and I’ve already had enough with my side of the family. There are multiple issues but I’ll list the big ones for you. First a little background… I’m in my mid 20’s, fiance in his early 30’s. We’ve been together 4 plus years. This is by no means a quick engagement.
-My mother can’t get over the fact my fiance didn’t ask permission.. Even though both parents were fully warned no one would know before I knew (we are sooo not a tradtional couple by any means so this is no surpise)
-My family is mad my fiancés nieces (who I am very close to) will be junior bridesmaids but have nothing for my 13 year old brother (who I am not close to) to do. They say I am leaving my family out…
-Parents are mad the baker will only allow 2 people (me and fiancé) to do cake tasting.
-Mother has criticized my choice in venue ( a golf course), the wedding dress I am in love with (said it;s ugly because it has a flower) and has criticized a number of different things.
-Parents upset I’m not inviting people they know (Dad’s work friends, etc)
-Parents upset I’m not inviting certain extended family that I hardly know. (we are having a very small wedding. MAX 45 people.)
This is all really petty and stupid. As an adult I shouldn’t have to answer to my parents for MY wedding day. We are still a year away from this wedding and I already just want nothing to do with them. I just don’t know what to do anymore.
