At least she is supportive of your choice to elope.  Even if she were more concerned about the money rather than the real reason.  Since she has been heloing you financially she may have just seen the “big” wedding as a financial strain on you and your FH and was worried about you starting out in the red.  If you had went through with the whole thing, I bet she would have supported you whole heartedly. 

I also cant believe they were criticizing your wedding.  Unless there was a real reason for it people should keep their mouths shut.  And by real reason I mean *he is cheating, they have proof* kind of stuff.

ONE MONTH TILL YOU I DO!!!!Have a blast!

HUGS to you Cheerful – esp b/c sounds as if you and I have LOTS in common familywise – and I had someone like your fairygodmother in my life for a very long time too.

I personally have had a very difficult time with the fact that no family members will be at my wedding and I am nervous about people asking questions, etc. My Fiance really wants the big wedding and I think some part of me does too, so we’re gonna do it but have definitely considered calling it off due to how stressed out it has been making me. 

It sounds to me like she is being supportive of your choice – the way a good mother or a good friend would be and should be.  I support you too and hope you have the greatest day and the utmost happiness.

More HUGS.

I’m getting that same “lack of enthusiasm” from my family.  I was planning this wedding for myself, but also as an opportunity to have a fun family reunion.  All I have been told is how silly it is to have a wedding.  It totally hurt my feelings, and I am very happy for you that you were able to be strong and plan something perfect for you!  I hope it’s fabulous and exactly what you want!

Cheerful –

Your FGM sounds like a fabulous, non-judgemental, and big hearted woman!

You had very bad luck when you were younger and now you are having great luck!

Good for you!

 It sounds like to me you aren’t really sure deep down that you don’t want a traditional wedding.  I went through the same thing.  I wanted to elope… I went back and forth.  My new husband was so supportive and said he would marry me anywhere I wanted.  But he wanted a church wedding.  The religious aspect of a wedding in a church was important to him.  Anyway, this is about what you and your groom want… not what anyone else wants.  And I am not so sure you really want to elope.  Just a gut feeling.  Hugs.
