@violet25:  My opinion is that you don’t have to explain anything. This is your (you and your FI’s) wedding and you don’t owe anyone an explanation for how/why you chose your venue.

@violet25:  First of all – congratulations on finding the venue of your dreams and double congrats on the good bargain!

It really is such a bummer in life when people envy and are jealous, rather than being happy for your joy.

But, that is their problem – not yours!

Revel in the joy of your wedding.  DO NOT (I repeat – do not!) feel guilty in any way or that you have to explain anything.  I’ll tell ya something about people – your true friends and loved ones will be HAPPY for you, that you are happy!

If they aren’t – then that shows their small-mindedness.  But don’t let that detract from your joy.  Screw them!!   (lol)


I say – ENJOY!

@MrsFeatherbottom:  I agree, why do you feel the need to explain?  Its none of their business how you decide to spend your money, or if they want to assume other stuff like you went into debt or whatever, who cares.  You’re the only one that needs to know the truth and live with your decision.

maybe she just doesn’t like that hotel.  I wouldn’t worry about it.

wow! congrats!

Don’t worry about explaining yourself. If they’re happy for you awesome! if they’re jealous, it’s not like they’re gonna change their mind if you tell them how you saved or what a good deal you got.

It’s your wedding and you’ll cry if you want to! 😛  Seriously though, they should all just butt out!

If you’ve saved up hard, you deserve it. No explanation needed 🙂

Step 1:  Don’t assume people are jealous of you.  Just because one person gave you a weird vibe doesn’t mean everyone will.  Personally I’d think you were bragging more talking about the good deal you got than just letting me know where it’s going to be at.

Step 2:  If they are jealous, ignore ignore ignore.

I feel like I get that a lot, too which is so annoying.  BUT, I just smile and nod and say “It’s going to be awesome.”

@violet25:  But with certain people who aren’t my friends I just get a weird feelings after telling them

You don’t have to explain yourself to anyone – especially people you don’t even consider friends.
