DFs family is disgusted at the registry office wedding. Recently 2 of his cousins were married and went the whole huge wedding thing, so now that is expected of us too.
We had planned to get married at the registry office then celebrate with family n friends by having a party afterwards. Very simple and inexpensive.
MIL had her parents are abit put out because they want the big occassion, but to be honest with the house and 3 kids we really cant afford it, nor do we want it. We want to be married infront of our 3 kids and 2 friends who will be our witnesses.
MIL is painful at the best of times and has a nack for turning everything into a discussion about how her n FIL are now divorced...even when we announced our engagement she started on the "your father and I were happily married for 26 years before he up and left without a word" blah blah blah
My family is more than happy to let DF and I have our way n they will join the celebrations afterwards.
So has anyone had a registry office wedding?? Did you regret it?? Will my MIL make my life miserable forever because I didnt give her the dream wedding she wanted??
(MIL only has sons and DF and I are the only ones who are engaged yet, her other son does have a GF but he wont propose to her yet LOL. So she has all her dreams pinned on me.)
