Well, now we are going to have to have our marriage witnessed by strangers. No one else in our family or any of our friends want to or can afford to go. I have some issues with this. I know it's not logical, but I feel like our wedding is like a "bad" thing, like no one approves (which isn't the case that I know of!) or we had to elope because our families hate each other (not the case) or that we had to have a shotgun wedding or something like that. I never thought we'd be getting married alone. I guess the most important people will be there (me, him, and God) but still.... I try to make my peace with it by remembering that even though they aren't there physically, his father and my grandparents (who have all passed away) will be there with us. It just seems sort of sad and pathetic that we're having our wedding without anyone to share in our happiness besides people who do not know us from Adam.
The only upside, I guess, is that now we can have a nice, private honeymoon alone and not have to worry about ignoring or alienating our "guests".
Does anyone want to take a Southern Caribbean cruise for New Years and be our witnesses?
