@jenjen2323:  First off, its YOUR wedding!! Secondly, you don’t have to disclose what you are paying for anything if it’s your money. It’s none of their business! We are paying for ours and I usually only share money related things with family/friends when I save money somewhere and I am proud! lol In my opinion, your brother’s comment sounds like he might be a tad jealous of your wedding. 




Don’t let what people say make you second guess what you and your fiance want for your wedding. This is your special day and what you choose to do is your decision!!!

Seriously, don’t worry about it. Weddings tend to bring out the worst in people for some reason. Your brother and his Girlfriend may be starting to think about their own wedding, consciously or unconsciously, and yours may not fit with their ideas and so they think it’s “bad”. Whatever! You and your Fiance are the only ones who need to be 100% content!

@jenjen2323:  I agree with some of the other comments. It sounds like your brother and his Girlfriend may be a tad jealious. I have found in my wedding planning that for every single tiny detail of your wedding there will be at least one person who doesnt like it….. its a little annoying. Generally people have there own issues that are in the way of your ideas. For ecample they think “I could never afford that” so they ‘dont like it’. 


Im in an awkward situation myself. My family doesnt have a lot of money so weddings are very tiny. I mean small. Both of my cousins had weddings in someones back yard. My older sister had a wedding at the Holiday Inn. My FIs family on the other hand has money (just not his immediat family unfortunatly). So his side is used to going to golf courses and castles.


So for every decision I make half the family thinks its too expensive and the other half thinks its cheap……… fun fun…. So really we just had to learn to tune out others opions because it is our wedding and we are paying for it so all of the choices are ours to make.

Here’s a boost – YOU ARE AWESOME.  Go look in the mirror and say it like you mean it.  As many times as you have to, until it feels good.
