My parents disapprove of Chris and I getting married August 2010. Mainly because I'll have 2 semesters of college left, but also because he doesn't have a degree or a six-figure job. We've been in a serious relationship for 3 years, engaged for 2 months
We're incredibly happy and at peace with our decision, as are Chris's parents! They're more like family to me than my own family is. We'll be having a very personal, nontraditional wedding. We want it to feel like "us." I'm concerned my parents will ruin the joy of planning, and the big day! Their attitude sucks, and they are so conniving and manipulative. My mom wants to help plan but won't voice her issues with FI to him. My dad is harboring a grudge bc FI didn't "ask for my hand, and that tradition has stood the test of time..." Blah blah blah. I just want this to be a happy time, I'm basically ignoring them now but don't want to cut them out. For instance, I'd love a father/daughter dance but don't want him to walk me down the aisle. Anyone been through this before??
