I'm disappointed my daughter isn't having a religious wedding

We raised her Catholic...her and her fiancé have been engaged for 1 year, they're getting married next summer...they live together now which my Dh and I and his parents weren't thrilled about but what can you do..?

Anyway they told us today they're having it at a country club/golf course and having a friend officiate...I bit my tongue but Dh said she always knew that if she wanted us to pay, it had to be a church wedding...she said okay and changed the subject and Dh said what, that's all you have to say and rolled her eyes and said fine, don't pay, we figured you wouldn't...Dh was annoyed she was so flippant about something that hurts us and told her that it hurts us she's chosen to reject morals and she said she's not a Christian, she's not having a religious wedding and if our imaginary friend and we didn't like it, we could all try to get over it

Dh left the room, they left a few minutes later...gah I wish we didn't have this tension during what's supposed to be a very happy time...

You put conditions on paying and she is choosing her own way and funding it herself. You have nothing to be hurt over. She isn't you. 

If anything she should be hurt by your limitations on a gift. Don't expect to be included in anything having to do with the wedding beyond being a guest.

I agree with you. It is her wedding not her parents. She shouldn't have money dangled over her head like a carrot so that her parents get what THEY want. That isn't right.
