I’m really sad that you have to go through that when you should be ecstatic and over the moon right now.  It’s hard to say those words to people that seem to be acting in your best interests despite how truly polarizing they may be acting.

This reminds me of that episode of Fresh Prince when Will is getting married to Nia Long and their fathers have such opposite ideas of what they should have for a wedding that they wind up trying to elope in Las Vegas only to realize that they wanted what Uncle Phil was willing to give them. The problem is, by the time they got back, he had already purchased a super duper golf cart.

With that said, let me go against the grain of what I feel most people would say. I have a feeling that everything that your parents want for your day isn’t necessarily problematic. Moveover, you’ll have a beautiful wedding day and your hard earned money can go towards a honeymoon, a new house (or rennovations), or a cushy account for the babies. Instead of looking a gift horse in the mouth, be firm about incorporating those things that are important to you — it seems like dinner is the biggest thing — and allow them to take care of the rest of the details.

You know your parents better than any one of us, however. If they are completely unwavering, then you should certainly do whatever makes you happy. I just feel that if there is room for any flexibility at all for what you want, then try your best to work with them before shelling out the cash on your own.
