Update: Thanks for you all the advice. @Sugaree: Thanks for the Daria shoutout (lol).
Anywho after much deliberation, me and Fiance decided to take alot the advice given here by you Bees that we hadn’t even thought of. We are going to have the small courthouse wedding and the small dinner like we planned, and Fiance parent’s are going to throw us a “reception party” where they can eat and dance the night away celebrating their son’s marriage with their tons of friends! Thanks guys! Like alot of you said, I did know what side I was leaning towards but sometimes you can feel crazy when you (and FI) are the only ones voting for something.
Thanks for all the feedback! Happy Friday!

I have a similar situation. Our plan is to have a small couthouse ceremony with just our immediate families in the morning, family lunch, then an evening reception/party with extended family and friends all in Austin (where we live).My fiance let it slide that he LOVES weddings when I suggested an elopement…not mention his family was not onboard.
Its all about compromise. Of course for some reason, my future mother in law feels as if our plans are too small (aiming for 150 or less at the party), so she is throwing a belated reception in NY (where they live).Regardless, I’m letting them pay for whatever they like…as long as I get my small ceremony I’ll be happy.
Sorry…that was a bit of a rant. Good luck with your plans!

Yay! I’m glad you are doing what you both want, with a compromise. The courthouse/dinner wasn’t my bag, but I think they are lovely! And having a reception/party after will be fun 🙂
