    We have put a £1000 deposit on our venue but I am now regretting it and wishing we were getting married abroad!
    Everyone is stressing me out. My mum has the hump because I'm not paying the extra £60pp for extra guests to include aunts and uncles, my bridesmaids don't get on, one is refusing to wear any of the dresses I've liked so far and wants to pick her own and I was pushed into having two flower girls because the parents said they will pay for their dresses and I felt bad saying no! I'm a complete wimp and hate confrontation so I won't say anything especially because I don't want to upset the flower girls and their parents but my partner and I want to cancel now and go abroad. Problem is we will lose our £1000 deposit so will need to go somewhere very cheap. Has anyone got married abroad for £3000 including hotel and flights? I'm thinking Las Vegas but can't help thinking it's tacky! Don't fancy NYC. What have others done?

    Sorry to hear you're having such a hard time with people. Have people got no boundaries or respect for other's wedding plans!

    Can you speak to your venue to see if there's any way of getting even part of your deposit back?

    If you use the search function and search for 'abroad' lots of threads will come up which you can have a read of.

    Apparently not! It's shocked me as I would never dream of asking if myself or my children could be part of someone's wedding party or ceremony.
    This is the first time I've used the forum so thank you for that tip. If I find anything I will ask the venue about having some of it back (fingers crossed!)

    Most ladies on here would say just put your foot down, decide what you want and can afford and do it your way, your wedding day is not for anyone else apart from your h2b to make decisions on.

    Everyone should just respect how you want the day.

    I'd be telling your BMs to deal with their differences and get on or at least be civil to each other because otherwise none of them will be BMs, they wear what they're given unless they pay for the dresses in full. If your mum wants so many extra family to attend she can pay for them, that includes all the extras like any drinks that will be included, seat covers, favours, cost of invites etc etc.
