@happyface:  So sorry to hear about your mom causing problems for you.  🙁 That must hurt a lot.  I can understand where you’re coming from though.

@happyface:  I am so sorry!

First, you can still have a dress.

Second, you could put that money towards a beautiful elopement. Our elopement to Paris (the wedding part) is $1,800 so I’m sure you could find something beautiful for low cost. 

I really wish everyone could have the perfect bridal experience with awesome families and no stress.

You love him? He loves you? You’re getting married? Then be happy!

As long as her reasons for dissaproving aren’t good enough reasons that maybe you should be paying attention to, then get married, be happy, and I hope she comes around.

How does his side feel about it? Are they still coming? Do you have family members who DO approve but just don’t want to offend your mom and may be rebellious and come anyways? What about friends? I would gather all those that both love and support the two of you and still have your party!

Why do you have to do away with your wedding?  Is it because your mom was gonna pay for it?  I don’t understand.  If none of my relatives were coming to my wedding, I’d still be having one with just FI’s family there.

@Pinksapphire:  <— This!!

OP, my Fiance doesn’t have a family (literally only has his parents and a sister), but we are still having the big ol’ wedding! Just because he doesn’t have any family coming doesn’t mean we shouldn’t celebrate our union! We have a ton of friends who can’t wait to see us get married and celebrate as well as all of my family members. I say, go on with the show! Those who are most important to you will be there.

Perhaps your mom will change her opinion? I am seeing from your profile that you will get married in 2017. People change overtime and perhaps time will let her ease up with the marriage idea?

So your family doesn’t approve of him because he is not in your religion? Or because you are marrying outside of the religion? Sorry, just trying to understand…
