After being together three years my now fiancé and I are looking to get married. I will be a step mum to his three children (our kids), which of course we want to include them in everything. They live with their mum over five hours away.

We only want a very small wedding and my fiancé is quite shy. I am having trouble trying to include everyone and keep my fiancé happy. Any one know any coastal places that would be suitable, definitely open to any helpful ideas. We live in NSW but would consider anywhere up to the Gold Coast. Thanks for your help :)

  • Hopefully if the children are old enough you can involve them in some way.
    A coastal idea would be a good idea. I wouldn’t necessarily have it on the sand though. If you want a quiet wedding I suggest your pick somewhere not frequented by a lot of people. I don’t know the area so I don’t have any suggestions.


  • I’ve always told my kids, when it comes to life’s big events (marriage, babies, careers etc) it’s totally up to them. No point trying to please others because it’s impossible to make everyone happy. So do what YOU want, what makes YOU happy, everyone else will just have to accept it


  • I hope you have found somewhere nice!


  • stories are great


  • Argh! Isn’t it a pain trying to keep everyone happy? We ended going to the registry office with just our witnesses and spilled the beans after.
