@DawnMarie:  I think you have the right idea- just don’t share your ideas with them.

I think it sounds adorable, I love the blue + yellow combo!

Wedding planning brings out a lot of opinions from a lot of different people. When they start in on you, thank them for their input. Oh you don’t like the colors? Thank you for your input, but I think Fiance and I are pretty decided on the colors. You don’t like the venue? Thank you for your input but we are already settled on it.

Eventually they’ll see a trend of you politely declining and dismissing their opinions and hopefulyl take the hint!

Good luck!

I think our families don’t agree with us either. Do what you want. We caved a LOT and are starting to regret it as the wedding comes closer. We realized how much extra work we are going to have to put in to make everyone happy and it makes us unhappy. Don’t let it happen to you!

Like my Fiance told me, Its OUR wedding, we do wat we want, and whoever doesn’t like it can go kick rocks!!! The only 2 people (besides the officiant!) required to be there is the bride and groom.

It’s YOUR wedding and you are paying for it. Period. End of discussion. Did you go ariubd critiquing their wedding?, I think not. Learn to smile sweetly and turn a deaf ear. You are adult, have the wedding you want!

STICK WITH THE TITLE–IT WAS PERFECT!!! The wedding sounded quirky before you even called it that–it sounds great and everyone just needs to GET. OVER. IT.

I wouldn’t share your ideas with them, they clearly want this to be all about them and not YOU and your DF!

We’re having similar problems, just with my family though.  The bigger problem is that we are in London and our wedding is back home in New Zealand – so we are reliant on them for opinions on venues etc… FH’s parents will come back with glowing reports and mine will come back with holes to pick in EVERYTHING.  And it has nothing to do with what we want, more to do with what is better for them (they want a venue closer to home for my nieces and nephews etc etc).  It’s incredibly frustrating!  I wish I had the same strength as you… working on it though.
