Wow, that really sucks but you should've been more open to your family. Think of how your dad feels, this one is your fault.
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.
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!
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.
