My fiance and I just got engaged about a week ago. (We had been talking about it for a couple months, but just decided to make it official) We have decided to have the wedding in April or May of next year, so we are looking at about a 5 or 6 month engagement and I'm feeling a bit overwhelemed already, to say the least!
Anyway, my problem is that my parents are not exactly happy with my choice, and I'm not sure that they would want to contribute anything towards the wedding or even be involved. My fiance thinks they will come around eventually, but the problem is, we don't have a lot of time. Neither one of us has the money for a wedding, so without my parents help, we would have to elope. I don't want to just ask my parents for money and I have no idea how to go about finding out tactfully if they want to help. I really want my family involved, since their aprroval means a lot to me, but I'm just not getting the vibe that they approve. HELP!!!
