Thanks a lot. I do find two person to be a bit too simple (well, obviously there will be two other friends there, to be the witness), and I do hope that there could be a line that both of us could agree upon. Thanks wgpictures. You may be joking about Vegas, but I think that is what he has in mind! The reason him giving is that he wants it to be a personal and intimate wedding, and he believes that this is a matter of two hearts. He does not like to put on wedding like it is a show. I think I am not able to convince him on how my family is important to me. Like you said, a wedding without a ceremony of parents sending off their daughter, into the hands of another man in my opinion, would be an incomplete marriage. And I am afraid that looking back, I will regret it. I do not think it is too big of a problem for him to compromise as well, and I do not know why it is so hard for him to! I do not understand. =( He said that he will instead, spend one whole month with my parents after the wedding, but it is just different. I am losing all ways to tell him or trying to convince him, without forcing him. Thanks for your warm welcome and wishes.
Hmm, just would like to spill my heart here. I apologise if it is too draggy. My HTB and I are generally non-traditionalist, so we like to keep everything sweet and simple, because it is for us. Even the proposal was as well. Because we are in a LDR, we work really hard to be together and eventually, with me being aboard with him (he is not a local). We were planning to have a wedding later this year, however, he wanted it to be a ceremony for just the two of us. He said that it should be special. However, I would like to invite my parents for the ceremony itself. He then say that he will compensate this by visiting my family, much later. Am I being sensitive or inconsiderate that I did not want my wedding to be that simple? I wanted it to be small, but not *that* small that it is just for the two of us. I don't know, because I have been upset just thinking about it for days. Maybe it is the fairy tale wedding that everyone has been dreaming about.. and I have mine too. =( Hmm, it has been upsetting me so much that I am even thinking about breaking up the engagement. I am not sure if I am thinking right... or if I have the right to be this upset...
