Chris wanted mountains. I wanted beach, simple, and outside. We agreed that 11/11/11 was the date. November in the mountains sounded cold. Chris did his research and came up with a Caribbean volcanic island that has both mountains and beach. St Lucia it is! He contacted the Jalousie Plantation and our wedding planning was underway.
I am getting married in about 3 months. We are having a small wedding, so we can keep the cost down and also, enjoy the company of those around us. I love my friend and definitely want her there , however, she just started dating this guy and I think he is terrible for her. He says nothing but rude things about her and is always criticizing her hair, body, etc which results in a lot of fighting, if we all go out. I am excited about getting married and have tried to talk to my friend about her new beau but she doesn't want to listen. How can I politely tell her, I don't want him at my wedding?
I am having such a hard time coming up with my guest list for my wedding. My husband and I are paying for the entire wedding but my parents still feel the need to invite "their" friends. I am inviting real family friends but not those people that I have not interacted with much. My mother feels it is really important but all I can see is the price tag and don't want to waste a bunch of money on people, I frankly don't care about.
Any good ideas on how to tell my parents, this is not what I want!
