It’s hard now but just wait till after the wedding, when your family realizes that this was the perfect wedding for the two of you.

@kermie: I hate to tell you how we handled this kind of thing, because it’s a little immature, but we waited to discuss almost every detail of what we had planned until it was already set in stone. Turns out no one at the wedding is really going to miss speeches or dancing. I guess we got lucky there. I bet when all is said and done no one will really end up missing it at your wedding either.

I, too, think it’s sad that people can’t handle these changes to tradition and minor inconveniences. Just stay positive and show everyone on the day that you are enjoying every second. Then even if they are bitten by bugs they will have to admit that the bride and groom were glowing (which is the most important thing in my opinion).

You know what is super strange?  I’m having the exact opposite problem.  My parents want (more like they are demanding) an hors deovers only wedding with no dancing or dinner.  My parents are concerned about the perception that we care more about the party than the marriage.  *sigh*  Want to trade families?
