My Fiance doesn't want to have a wedding party. He was married before, bride's family spent way too much on their wedding and she cheated on him, she's an ugly, ugly person.
I'm ok with this. Focus on us. We have lots of friends, most of mine are far away, his brother across the country. We don't want to pick and choose and leave anyone out and we are paying for everything ourselves anyway, so we want to keep costs down and just focus on us and throwing everyone a fun party.
He has a small family, none local. My parents are divorced, mom has no money, dad just retired down south.
We have some local friends and family but since no wedding party or parents with money or wedding planner, does this mean we won't have a wedding shower? So like no reason to make a registry?
It kinda sucks. Sorry I'm having a pity party.
And I don't want anyone to have to rent a hall or buy food for everyone, I don't want much. Even BBQ, a couple bottles of wine or pizza in a backyard. I don't know, my mom isn't much support. His mom and mother in law are amazing and giving and would do it in a heart beat if they lived in our state.
Anyone have advice or deal with something similar?
