My fiance and I want a wedding reception without all the frills and thrills. We want something simple which doesn't require us to take out loans and which has a nice touch here or there, like a fun party favor, red velvet weding cake, etc. We had considered our favorite bar, where we met, but it can only hold 60 people and there's no way we can do less than 83 people. So we're considering other options. We're not you're typical bridal couple, however: my fiance has his dream wedding in mind and I've never given stuff like this much thought. So I'm pretty flexible and my fiance is pretty set with what he wants. This includes having his cousin and aunt, who are professional chefs, cook for the reception. I've never met them nor tried their food, and they'll be coming from another country. My fiance wants to rent a big house by the shore for the reception and for our close family members to stay in. I'm okay with renting the house but I would like to have the reception catered so we don't have to worry about finding a place big enough for his cousin and aunt to cook, buying/renting glassware and dishes, finding enough food, etc. Plus his cousin and aunt are coming to the US from another country, so I'm worried about whether something might happen with their flight and other uncertainties. I look upon having his family cook for the reception as adding a lot of stress and he looks upon it as a lifelong dream. I'm starting to be made out by him and his parents as the "bad guy" for not wanting things this way. He and I have talked about how I'm more flexible with what we do and he's more set in what he wants, but how this is supposed to be our wedding, which means he needs to compromise. Any suggestions as to what we could do?
