Why wouldn't expect this sort if thing? Your father either feels disrespected orhe dislikes your husband. YDI for not knowing that would be his reaction. Trying to shove it down people's throats as a Christmas surprise seems a bit thoughtless to me.

Agreed. OP YDI. I get it I know it's your choice and of course you can get married however you like but that's a bit inconsiderate. You can't leave your whole family, especially parents, out of your wedding AND not expect them to be angry. Deal with the consequences of your decision. BTW it wouldn't have been any better if they found out on Christmas.

The bride's parents don't always pay for the wedding. They may have not had a formal ceremony, and the parents would have obviously known about something they had paid for.

If your family is a fistful of assholes, then by all means elope and ready yourself for more ass-hattery when they find out you've done and married without them. And good luck. If your family is just a little f-ed up, it's mean to exclude them, but they will forgive you in time, and you'll have a great marriage to support you in the meantime. Mazel Tov!

Yea OP parents always want to be at there kids weddings, and about the fact that the father normally walks the daughter down the aisle so you really cut him out of one of the most important things in your life. YDI

It sucks, but I don't know which is worse: the fact that she eloped, or the fact that she's selfish enough to think that would have been a great Christmas present.

Sorry, I was still half asleep. I can't see the post when I'm commenting and am too tired to rely on memory so I'll rely on the friendly neighbourhood Grammar Nazi to take care of it for me.

And, pretty much selfish. Perhaps explains the OP is spoiled brat. Making it more possibly as a "disrespected" feeling for the OP's father. Why? He tried to teach the OP good from wrong. And he ends up seeing OP running off cheating, etc. Feels betrayed father, there..

really, #25? You're making it seem like the OP is her father's property and she exists to make him happy. The OP deserves to have the type of wedding she wants and her father needs to suck it up, he already had his own wedding!
