| | Re: Luxury Vacation or Marriage Blessing? Please weigh in!
I'm with Mom on this. Go for the vacation!
Also, most pastors will want you to go through counseling before they agree to officiate a wedding. A UCC/UU minister may be your only option if DH is an atheist. But I agree about the guests/gifts, it does seem socially awkward at only 5 years.
There must be some kind of win/win solution somewhere in all of this.
