Hey, Bro Jo, It's me again.
So my fiancée and I want to get married in August but everyone else wants the wedding in December so they can plan.
So the real issue is my parents have to fly out to South Africa for a funeral ceremony the week after which is more expensive on their part with costs of flights etc.
Now I understand that but I don’t want an expensive big wedding at all. If I had it my way we'd go to the registry office and get married there and dash off to the Temple after.
I'm worried that we'll make mistakes in the next 6/7 months to come. Also we live in different countries so we can't see each other that often especially with my fiancée starting school in August for chiropractic studies.
So we basically have to take a step back and not forward in order for everyone else to be happy. But it's tearing my heart thinking that we have to be apart again for some time just because other people want the wedding.
I don't care about the wedding I just want to be with him and that's it.
I've told the people who want December that they can do the wedding and we'll just show up which is exactly what I mean.
Being engaged is supposed to be a happy time but I'm laying here awake at 3am looking for answers.
We prayed and individually pray and I feel August is a good time.
Maybe I'm just being bratty and ungrateful...
