What kind of questions is she asking that you think are odd?

@vetgirl: I don’t think many older people did things as excessive as our generation. At least thats what my mom tells me; she thinks my friends and I live lavish lives. WTF…IDK my family is very simple and I am not. I am perfectly ok with that;0) Maybe your Future Mother-In-Law feels the same way. Many of them married their husbands in the family church and had the reception in the fellowship hall.

I am a born and bread east coaster and I’m marrying a Boomer Sooner. My family does STD’s for everything, open bar for almost everything, several course meals, showers, etc. These are not done things for FI’s family and her brother was amazed and SO EXCITED about the open bar. Sometimes when we mention things to Fiance parents on they kind of look at us like we are on the strange side. Since we’re having an east coast wedding and the vast majority of our guests are from the region we’re going with my hometown traditions.

Things HAVE changed, but all you have to do is send her some links to read so she can be brought up to speed. STD’s have been around awhile, but many people still don’t do them or find them necessary, or only send them if they are having a destination wedding.

Weddings in this country seem to have many differences depending on the region. It’s OK…she’ll be fine.
