- Wedding: March 2011
Is anyone else feeling guilty? i live on the opposite side of the country from my family, so its going to be a major finacial undertaking for my dad to come ( my dad, my stepmother, and 3 kids) we are planning a very small intimate wedding .. mostly just family. think less than 40 people. i am starting to feel horrible because he’s going to spend almost as much coming all the way down here as i am on the wedding! also i realize that our wedding is probably gonna get lost in the excitement of other things.. – 2 grandkids/great-grandkids expected before our wedding. but i’m feeling guilty becasue it seems like i’m asking them to cough up the cash to travel here…stay in a hotel (my dad/family might be able to all fit in my house..if we put my sister on the couch and the twins on an air matress) as well as my mom there. ( can you say crazy and hide a few bottles of wine in my room to take the edsge off?)
Anyway i’m feeling guilty about wanting to have a wedding with the traditional touches like a dress, and flowers, and a fancy cake….especially since i’ve been married before (FI has never been married)…when if its just family we could go to city hall, and then have a family dinner.
however , i also want our wedding to be more special than thanksgiving….
