All good so far, but now we are planning a wedding that is very casual and simple by the end of February. Therefore in 1 month and a half I will be his wife. We really loe each other.
We decided that we do not want a big party, because we do not have many friends and because we do not like attention. We do not enjoy much social events, and do not really need or want to invite our whole family.
My fiancé didn't even tell his family about our decision until today. When his mom found out she got shocked and a little upset that why are rushing to get it done now and not have a big party. We tried to tell her is the money and because it is not our style. My fiancé thinks she is fine, but I really felt she is shocked that we get married so fast fter 8 months engagement and why not making a big deal.
Instead of a big ceremony we will have an officiant in a nice winery and have along all 4 parents.
Do you think this is weird? Any ideas how to make this a little more special for my mother in low? I feel so stressed out now because I know she is kinda dissapointed.
The thing is if I invite one person I have to invite 50 others cause I can't just pick and choose and that's why we will only have immediate family- parents and siblings.
