- Wedding: September 2019 - Churchill Downs - Louisville, KY
Here’s my issue: He is divorced and his family does not approve of me at all. In fact, they still consider the ex their daughter and have mostly shut him out of their life, simply because he has chosen his life with me now. So I am stuck trying to figure out how we can still have our special day that we agree on. I have never been married therfore I sometimes want a traditional ceremony with friends and family but I feel bad because his family has made it clear that they will not come or support us. I don’t want a ceremony if only my family and friends show up… I think that would be hurtful to him. We’ve talked about a simple beach ceremony with only one friend each for a witness, but he knows I would like to include my mom and sister. My mom is a cancer survivor and I think it would mean alot to her to be a part of my wedding. So.. do any of you have any advice? We also have a tiny budget of around $5000 to use so it limits things in some ways. We are very rural and live the country lifestyle. The nearest large city is 6 hours away… any help?
