You are doing nothing wrong but some people try to make things more about themselves than what you really want or care about. I had this very same thing happen at our reception my mom acted like it was her wedding and was bummed because I asked her to help since we were doing the cooking, decorating and pretty much everything and still to this day makes remarks about how she didnt get to have a good time. Just do what you want to do and dont worry about how it makes everyone else feel, after all it is your wedding anf it should be all about you! Good Luck.

Because your letting them throw wedding related type parties you’re getting wedding related drama. Based on your reasons to elope, I’m not sure why you’re surprised by this.

My grandmother tried to get me to do 2 receptions finally after much insistants and a budget number crunch I won out the battle but its hard. Weddings arent really about the bridal couple anymore, everyone thinks its all about them. I say let them throw a shower but do not let them do a reception.

You are doing nothing wrong! Have invitations been sent out or is this still in the planning stages? If it’s still in the planning stages I would say “thank you so much for wanting to do something for me, however I think it would be easier for all of us not to have a party/shower etch.” Let them know how much you appreciate the gesture but you just don’t want any kind of attention.
