- Wedding: July 2013
I am so sick of people telling me how to have my wedding, telling me that it isnt a proper wedding and that we are rushing into it. Oh and my SISTER wanting to have her graduation merged with my wedding … not even kidding it was seriously considered by everybody but me and Fiance.
Me and Fiance are very simple people, we would rather take our son for a day out or make sure whatever jobs around the house are done before we spend money on anything else, we both dont like attention and if it wernt for families we would have gone off on our own and got married on the quiet somewhere but we would like our parents and grandparents there so we settled for a town hall ceremony and a buffet reception at my mums house.
So far i have had people tell me it isnt a real wedding, that we are too cheap (FYI what were doing still requires a lot of money that we dont really have, we could never get into debt over a wedding and dont want to wait years to save up so this is the best we can do). My sister graduates on the monday before the wedding and she wanted to invite all of her friends and have it as a joint wedding/graduation party since it is at her home she said i couldnt tell her no. Luckily my mum realised how upset i was about it and talked her down and said she can have a party the week after but seriously the girl is 21 she should know better.
I have had people at work tell me that me and Fiance mustnt love each other enough because we dont want a big wedding and that there is no point to our wedding at all. This all seriously pisses me off. sorry for the rant but i had to vent somewhere and family are the ones saying this and Fiance is sick of wedding talk atm so thought id post here, not really looking for advice as i can stick up for myself and i do tell them all where to shove it but i just wanna scream!!
