I'm stumped...

 Heres a little problem my DF and i have been struggling with. We want to get started on setting the date for our wedding but, we both agree that my family and his family... Together in the same room, wouldn't be the greatest of all ideas. We are against a court wedding. We want an actual wedding. The dress, flowers, brides maids, flower girl... so on and so fourth.

The only thing i can come up with is having 2 weddings but that's just ridiculous!!

Anyone??

I'am a proud 20 year old mother who is a vaccinating, co-sleeping, once breastfed now formula feeding, swear word user, disposable diapering, sing my <3 out while driving, tattoo'd, school going, thick headed, fast food eating, ear piercing, hair dying, stay at home mother of 1 beautiful little girl!!

Set the date, and when you tell your families about it, tell them that if they want to share this day with you, then they're going to be civil to each other, or they're not invited.  It's as simple as that.  There's no reason why you should have to have TWO weddings just to appease your families when a wedding is NOT about the families...it's about you two!  You don't want/need the drama, so if they're going to cause it - buh-bye!  JMO

Put bit and blinders on them like you would a horse... Sorry couldn't resist. I really don't know girl but I hope you figure it out. Here is a bump.

I was worried about this within my own family, but thankfully everyone was on their best behaviors.  Also, if you have some close friends that can be the "peace keepers" at the wedding that helps.  These friends have been given the right by you and your fiance to ask people to leave if they are acting in appropriate.  You should not have to worry about this on your day.  A good friend can take care of it for you.  good luck.
