It's your wedding, do what you want!?
This might be a bit of a controversial post, but I have started to get a bit sick of some of the advice I've seen!
I do think that actually, this whole 'its your wedding' mentality can be a bit selfish. It is your wedding, but it's not just about you, and I do think other people's opinions are important. I have moaned a lot about my mum being a nightmare, but actually, this day is massively important to her, and I want her to enjoy it! I have changed things to suit her, and to be honest, the whole wedding isn't what I wanted; I want to elope but my other half wants a big wedding, so that's what we're having. To be honest, as long as I get to marry him, and we have a good, happy marriage, that's all that matters! My parents can't afford to contribute towards the wedding (although the initial budget was £5000, as that's what they were going to give us; unfortunately now they can't afford to give us anything), but I still value their opinion, and I want them to be happy. There are things I've put my foot down about, as it is really important to me and H2B, but I do think that just thinking, I'm going to have what I want, and don't care how anyone else feels about it, is a bad mentality to have? Plus, if it is all about you, and your guests don't enjoy it anyway, as you haven't taken their opinion into consideration, is there any point?! Does anyone else feel like this?
