Hi all, I am seriously having 2nd thoughts about the big wedding... There has already been arguments and falling outs with the OH family. They all have an opinion and their opinion is always right where as my family just dont get involved, they just let us go about doing our own thing. My Mom even said if we want to go off on our own to get married do it where as if we dont have the church wedding and the 300 relations on his side they wouldnt be happy. We have venue, church, priest, photographer and band booked but I actually wouldnt even care that we lose deposits etc. I know he would be happy without all the fuss and just 2 of us on our own.... I just want to marry my best friend the love of my life and thats how we both feel...

At the end of the day this is about you and your fiancee. What do ye want? If you both just want to be married you could just go off and get it done and do a party afterwards. It will take away a lot of the stress. If you want the big day - do it your way. His family will just have to deal with it and will eventually move on. And if they don't, it sounds like it wouldn't be a massive loss to you.
