Our wedding shouldn't be just about us....or should it? UPDATE.
He has a twelve-year-old daughter. I have two boys - 8 and 6 years-old. We have been together four years. We are established. We are happy.
I think that our wedding isn't just about us. I feel strongly that it shouldn't be ONLY about us. That day will be a day when we are 'officially' a family. I would like it to be very family oriented....I basically want all of the kids to look back fondly on that day. I don't want the pomp and circumstance.
He's seems to want a more traditional wedding, one that doesn't focus on the kids' part in all of this. He said, 'Everyday is about the kids. Why not make this day just for you?'
Well, I can't seem to do it or even fathom the thought of not having the kids involved. I'd hate it if my parents got married and I was shoved to the kids table. I want this to be THEIR day too. This is a huge moment in THEIR lives as well.
Hmmm. Am I wrong?
I am amazed by the amount of response this post has. Thank you for your opinions. For the women who are not nice, I feel sorry for you.
Anyway, it turns out that he was more confused about the timetable than anything. He said he doesn't understand the point of it. Haha! I think we're well on our way to a fun wedding for everyone involved. We are both very excited!
Thank you again!
