Try thinking of it as your soon-to-be husband’s first opportunity to show you off to your future family, and a chance for you to meet and celebrate your new family.

myprincess:  I undertsand that you have no family in attendance, but is there a reason for no friends? Do you have a few close friends that could come for support? Or perhaps a couple people from work/school..? If not, you should still make the best out of it. He wants to celebrate you and your relationship and his love for you to his family and friends and that is especially sweet!

myprincess:  I think the PPs summed it up well. Think of this as an opportunity to meet your new family and future friends. I wish I could add more, but I think you will do great! Goodluck on your wedding day, and those fireworks sound really cool! 🙂

I can understand wanting to just elope (I actually did elope for different reasons) but in your case I really think a wedding would be better. This is your opportunity to make all these friends that you never had (FI’s friends and family)while simultaneously starting your life together. I do think you should voice your concerns to Fiance though and tell him how you feel because it’s not necessarily fair that you feel forced into this so you should definitely clear that up before the big day.

I’m an only child and an orphan, but my Darling Husband has also lost his mom so he understands why we wouldn’t want a big wedding. We had a destination wedding and I only had 1 person (my 8th grade teacher) there for me, everyone else was his family and friends. But it was fine for me because we were all becoming one big family anyways. I think you should try to look at it that way!

I could see how this is daunting to you! I am so happy that you found your Fiance and that he found you. He clearly wants to show you off and celebrate your love in the biggest and best way possible. That is beautiful!

I trust that he already considers YOU his family and hopes that you’ll feel comfortable enough to consider his family and friends as yours too! In time, you’ll meet and make new friends. Don’t stress your self out. Your wedding day is supposed to be one of the happiest days of your life. I hope you take comfort in the knowledge that your Fiance deems your special day fireworks-worthy!

Congratulations Bee! I am soooooo over the moon for you and hope that you’ll consider us your friends too :)! Best wishes to you!
