- Wedding: April 2014
I’m a regular lurker but don’t post that often so HI! I need some advice about my current wedding plans and will provide you with some detail:
a) All of my Moms family lives in another province in Canada. All of my Dads family lives in England, including my older sister and nephew. I only have my Mom, Dad and little sister where I live.
b) My parents got divorced a few years ago and my mom is getting married again on August 31 of next year. A lot of her family will be down for the wedding and also my sister and her family will be here from England.
c) My fiances family all live in our province minus his Aunt and Uncle and two cousins who live in California, they have made it clear that they will be coming to the wedding no matter what.
So I asked my fiance what he thought about getting married a few days after my mom on a Wednesday afternoon (due to finances). He thinks it is a great idea, so I asked my mom and she was also very excited about this idea. I feel terrible about it being so close to her wedding and don’t want to take away from her day at all, I told her to tell me if any of this bothers her and she has made it adamant that it won’t affect her day.
I’m having a few reservations about this even though it is most convenient. If I were to get married in Spring of 2014 then I would be making people fly here so close together, otherwise I’d be pushing my wedding off further which I don’t want to do.
Do you think it is wrong/inappropriate for me to pick my wedding date so close to my mothers? Do you think it is wrong to have a wedding in the middle of the week? I keep getting told it is your wedding so do what you want but in my opinion the wedding is for everyone else so if it is an inconvenience for everyone then why bother.
Please tell me what you think, I want to hear lots of opinions!
