Wow, are we going through the same situations? 

I say, if they aren’t paying, fuck it! You have NO reason to do what they say if that’s something you don’t want. No matter what, it is you and S’s day, NOT theirs. It makes me so mad when families (and I know just how you feel) turn a day that is about the two of you, into a day for THEM, when it isn’t. 

Jesus.

I’m really sorry. I wish I knew what else to say

Hugs, 

SWN

@Bellanouva: Don’t you love some good ‘ole fashioned manipulation? 

I mean, is this the sister that came at you before?

**hugs** So sorry, Bella. Thankfully S is being so thoughtful and understanding. You take way more than your share of crap, my dear.

Wow, as I was reading your post, I thought for sure your parents must be paying for the wedding. But the GOOD news is, they are not! And therefore, they really can’t dictate what you do… I know it must be so hard, but really, you’ll be much happier if you don’t give in to their unreasonable expectations and stand your ground. You are entitled to the wedding you want, and your SO’s family is entitled to some respect. Good luck, and hugs to you!

@Bellanouva:OUCH! that’s terrible. I’m so sorry lady, you don’t deserve this. You are such a strong, brave woman. And being the black sheep in the family is so hard, I know. I’m here for you every step of the way. And you know that!

And by the way, it seems to me your sister is pushing this on you because it was pushed on her, and she gave in. So she’s not going to let you “get away” with having your way, since she didn’t have the guts to resist. Ugh.

For some reason it seems as though the brides family drinks some bad kool-aid when it comes to weddings. I’m marrying into a different culture and most my family is completely oblivious to it!
