So, my fiancé and I are in a bit of a conundrum. We want an awesome and beautiful Puerto Rican beach wedding, but the parents that are paying said no. They said no because grams can't come. That's it! While I would love to have my grandma come, I want a beach wedding damn it and to be honest, her health is diminishing more and more every day and I really don't think she will make it another year and a half which is the date we have set. Since I can remember I have dreamed of a beach wedding, on white sand, with a beautiful blue ocean in front of me. Sounds perfect, right? Now, ever since we got engaged in Puerto Rico all my fiancé talks about is a beach wedding there too. I mean come on! How awesome is that!? So I'm thinking, why waste all this money on deposits and stuff if she won't even be able to make it anyway? I'm just being real here. I love grams to death but I'm just trying to put things into black and white.
So my question is, do I just say flat out, I don't want whatever crap you are planning in my home town because I will be unhappy with it and pay for it myself? Or should I just deal with it and be sad and not care about my wedding? Because at this point, I'm really starting to not give a sh*t about where or how we get married since it will be in my craphole of a town! Let me mention that the only reason we can't have a destination wedding is because of my parents, his parents are all for it! Total B.S.!
So fiancé says screw them, let's elope in Puerto Rico and come back and tell them the news and beg for them to throw us a party. I'm all for it, but my mother would probably be pretty upset with me. Is it worth it? I mean it is MY WEDDING!

Why don't you ask your parents to throw you a big engagement party in your hometown? Soon, while Grams is still able to attend.
Then you can throw yourself the beach wedding of your dreams. (I.E. You had better not expect them to pay for it. Brat.)
