So I am getting married to my current fiance at a courthouse wedding this winter. We decided it would be best to get married at court since we will be moving next year out of state. A few family and friends will attend most of my soon to be husbands parents, and grandparents. Small of 15 guests. However my parents won't be attending due to the belief that it is not a real wedding because of it being in court and not a exspeinve ceremony. Will we have a renewal of vows but later in years. My father disowned me, and my mother won't go because she has plans of flying to go see her 26 year old boyfriend upnorth. They have a concert the same night of my wedding day. Neither did she go dress shopping with me at all, my mother in law and best friend Jessica did instead. I know I shouldn't feel selfish because it's not a real huge wedding but I can't feel upset due to the fact they won't attend?

Have someone walk with you. If you focus on the person you are about to marry, this anxiety will be very short lived and you will be happy that you got through it. Treat it like a rehearsal, not the actual ceremony. Having someone along side will ease your tension greatly! Best of luck!
Well, for starters, there is a VERY good chance that the ring cannot be returned. I say accept the ring, be happy that he and his mom *which is BIG* took the time to choose something they felt you would appreciate and don't worry about the cost...If he isn't worried about it, then you shouldn't be worried about it. Be happy!!! Best of luck to you!
I was in your situation, however neither of us have many friends OR family and what family we have lives miles away. We chose to do a destination wedding in Vegas. BEST plan ever. Then when we got home, we shared photos of the big event. My husband and I just planned the wedding online and he and I showed up on our day and got married! I think the family appreciated not having to spend a fortune to attend...LOL...If you live near a beach, have it there...Small, yet intimate. Best of luck!
You both can pay for the bands. But if you pay for it yourself, you have MORE than enough money to get him a simple gold band. I have never heard of the brides parents paying for the rings. Best of luck
