It will be so great to have loved ones who support you and are witnessing your big day.  To have anyone else there, would just add stress for you.  I’m so sorry your mother is so stubborn!

This sounds awful!!!  It’s one thing to disagree with your children’s choice of religion, it’s quite another to emotionally abuse them / scream / threaten not to come to their wedding over it.  It’s pretty damn sad that “religion” is more important than family.  I hope that you and your FI (and sister) are able to move on in healthy and loving relationships together and get your toxic parents out of your lives.  I’m wishing you lots of luck.

Aww so sorry your going through this. It really does not sound like sitting down to chat with them would do any good. Look out for you and your sister and hope someday your parents have a change of heart. If your sister is still of age to be living at home make sure they don’t take their anger with you on her. I hope things start looking up for you soon.

I’m so sorry your family is putting you through this!  I was wondering though, why is she so upset about the pastor?  Maybe I don’t understand the church workings….. but isn’t a pastor the same thing as a preacher?  Like God will be involved in the ceremony either way?

 

And I definitely agree with you that eloping and a small wedding with the people you chose is much better!!!!

This is so sad! But you know what? You’ll have the people there that really mean something to you and support you, and at the end of the day, that’s what matters! Go have a stress free elopement!

That sounds really terrible.  I’m sorry you had to go through this.  On a positive note, at least it made the decision to elope an easy one.
