Family sticking their nose in
I am having a big 3 day Indian wedding extravaganza. when I tell most people this they are amazed and tell me how lucky I am. and I know, I am lucky- 3 entire days to celebrate. The problem is if me and OH had it our way, we would have had a tiny civil registry ceremony somewhere. I have gritted my teeth and have been doing what's been expected of me for about a year now. With only 6 weeks to go however I just feel like suddenly everyone keeps butting and giving their opinion (which is generally that I should be doing things I would rather not spend money on) (for the record, both sets of parents are paying for the majority of the wedding(s!). it could clean us out otherwise). I have got to the point where I feel so frustrated by constant opinions and criticisms about the way I am doing things (basically, I have agreed to a big indian Wedding for 400, as well as a typical 'English wedding' for a smaller number of 150). considering I don't want any of this anyway am I being really ungrateful in wishing I didn't have to do and plan (and spend all my free time!) this wedding? I am so excited to be getting married to my OH (who incidently has a tiny family and doesn't really understand the need for a big wedding) but I am trying to control my internal anger and frustration that things aren't the way I want it- 'it is about 2 families coming together' I am told, rather than me and OH. Any thoughts?
