elfbee :  Is a religious ceremony important to you? Or are you happy with courthouse? You might be able to have a small ceremony in the church sooner.

I hope your parents get over whatever negative feelings they have over your pregnancy soon. They should be supporting you, not judging you.

elfbee :  If you cannot get enough of next year’s reception deposits back for canceling to make sense go ahead and celebrate your marriage with a smaller guest list of people who love and support you. The Catholic church practices forgiveness. If your parents and family do not they are not following the teachings of the church and too bad for them–they don’t have to be invited. Hold your head high, Bee, and do what is best for your family.

If you get married without them being present, they will regret their reaction once the anger subsides. You should be the bigger person and invite them even if you opt for courthouse.

elfbee :  I hope your parents let their anger go and start being there for you at this time. It’s saddening to see that they have put their religious beliefs above your happiness. Take care.

elfbee :  A small church wedding should appease your parents if they are against courthouse? I agree with pp that you should invite them even if you do not believe they will attend. That way you will not feel guilt or regret later in life.

Did you talk to your priest about a small wedding soon?
