So my FI and I have been engaged for 9 months and the wedding date isnt until next year, and for the past 8 months everyone in his family is insisting that we let them throw an engagement party. However when my Parents threw an engagement party they all had other things to do and didnt make it. We are both very simple people and dont really need all the attention. Im getting overwelmed with all the events that my family is making me do and I really dont want another party. Im getting the the point of just wanting to run to Vegas or better yet City Hall on our lunch break. I love my FI and cant wait to call him husband, but the wedding stuff is driving me crazy.
I know that Ill just suck it up and let the families do what that want, Im not a push over just picking my battles. Thanks for letting me vent.
