I think it should be about what YOU want, NOT your parents. My dad wanted to walk me down the isle but since I didn’t want him to he didn’t. Sure he was mad about it but he hasn’t mentioned it once since then and seems fine with it now. This is YOUR day. Don’t let your parents force what they want in if you don’t agree. Maybe you can find something they can do to make them happy where you can still have your private ceremony.

You two should do what makes you happy. You dont want to look back and regret your wedding day because it is some whole ordeal you never even wanted…. if you and he want whatever then DO IT!

Let the parents know later… you couldn’t plan a whole TO DO… because of money, time, or even stress. You are the bride 2b you should be happy and this message you just post is everything, but happy.

Tell your Fiance to get it together and tell you what he wants too…. does he want a whole to do… really he doesn’t seem from what you say… to into it either. You two should talk and then make a decision… everyone else will simply have to live with it.

I once read ‘he who holds the checkbook holds the power’…so if you guys are paying, do vows wherever you want, just the two of you or just with each set of parents, and then why not have everyone go to a really nice dinner after? Do what you guys both wanted. A lot of times your original idea is the best one because it’s what your heart tells you is best for you. 🙂
