Help convincing parents.
This is my first post, but idesperately looking for help.
Me and my fiancé (both 23) are hopefully having a wedding ceremony in France. We will do all paper work to be 'married' in UK before we go, but wont count that as a wedding day. We will celerbrate the French wedding as our wedding day. Only problem is my dad isn't too happy, his first thought when I said what we were planning was 'oh I don't have any holidays from work, i'm booking up for America'. Because my dad has basically said he won't be there, my mum is being very silent about the subject. We have a child together and have been engaged for a while, so I know it's not the fact that he's shocked or anything..
So my question is, how the heck do I convince them to come and celebrate our wedding with us?
