To give you the down and dirty, some recent events have added a ton of stress to my wedding that is coming up in a October. My sister (who is my maid of honor) recently was insulting and trying to instigate a fight with my fiancé. When he reacted to what she was saying, my parents jumped on her side, despite the things she was saying being completely out of line. The argument then blew up to bring in issues from the past and has grown into something else entirely.
A couple weeks have now past. My sister has stepped down as my maid of honor. My parents will attend “If I even want them there”. My parents think I kicked my sister out of the wedding even though all I said was “I think that the maid of honor should be supportive”, which I don’t think is unreasonable. In the last conversation I had with my mom, she was trying to convince me that my fiancé is a liar, regarding things that wouldn’t even make sense to lie about (like education, work history, etc.).
So now I don’t know what do. I feel like if I still have the wedding as planned, it’s going to be incredibly uncomfortable and tense, which is definitely not the kind of day that I had hoped for. I almost wonder if I would be better off eloping instead, but I don’t want to disappoint the other guests who are planning to attend, like my fiancé’s family.
Have any of you dealt with parental disapproval like this? What did you do? How did the way you handled it work out for you?
Thanks for the input!
