Tell Me About It
Dear Carolyn: Im engaged to a wonderful man, Jim, and were planning our wedding. We just booked a gorgeous inn and I am going to wear a stunning full-length white dress. Well also be having a sit-down dinner with band and dancing for the reception.
Im in my 30s and Jim is in his 40s, and we are paying, so no one else really has any say in this, but since its my third wedding and his second, were catching a surprising amount of flak from both our families.
Is there some kind of limit to how many big weddings youre allowed to have? My mom and his sisters are acting like were violating some unwritten rule that this wedding has to be small and intimate.
