- Wedding: February 2013
My SO and I are planning to get engaged within the next couple of months (picking out rings tomorrow), with a wedding in the first half of 2013.
We had a bit of a rough run in the beginning because a jealous person tried to sabotage us by sending anonymous emails & letters to me, my mother, his mother and close friends. The emails contained complete lies about us and threats. Luckily, the emails stopped, however it has left me feeling a little worried… though I try not to sweat these things.
Any how, I now really would prefer to have a small, quiet wedding with just my closest friends and family. I don’t want to advertise our relationship to the whole world, knowing there is a crazy person out there who has a lot of time on their hands.
This would normally be easy to achieve, but it so happens my girl cousin who lives in England, is getting married early next year. It is a destination wedding in Singapore (which is where our family is from).
All my family will be travelling pretty far to get to Singapore (from England to Singapore), with all their kids who are pretty young too.
My SO and I really want to get married next year (ASAP, early next year, because we are waiting till marriage to do a whole lot of stuff… we’re quite traditional), but we don’t think anybody is going to make a second trip all the way to Australia for our own wedding (we live in Sydney), right after my cousin’s wedding.. (in the first half of 2013)
I was thinking it would be good if I had my wedding in Singapore too, maybe a week after hers (I wouldnt want to steal her thunder), and then have all my family too, and get married early next year.. but my SO isn’t keen on a destination wedding, or a weding in Singapore.
How can I convince him that it’s a good idea, and the only way for us to get married early next year and my family around (I am the only one who is close to any of her family – he isn’t close to his) given our circumstances?
