Do I say something about money?

Recommended Posts

Like you, the issue of monetary assistance involving a wedding had come up WAY before there was ever that actual issue of a wedding! My parents had always said that they would contribute, and...when I DID get engaged, and started thinking about what we could spend...and how soon we could afford to get married, I decided to casually bring it up with my mom...

 

I just told her that I had begun working on our wedding budget and made small talk about having no idea how much this shit costs! I just came out and asked if her and my dad were able to give us anything and was so pleased to know, not only that yes, they had a nice amount they wanted to give us, that my dad wanted to buy my dress...but...also...now it was out there...off my chest!

 

Just ask your mom if she and your dad are able to help you out at all...

 

Give them specific things that they can pay for if they don't want to just give you a lump sum of money...like photography, or your dress, whatever.

 

Your FI can ask the same of his parents.

 

Wow...this was long.

I think that you should not ask about money. If someone wants to help contribute then they will. I and my love will be saving and paying for it ourselves. since we are want the wedding of my dreams (LOL) it is up to us to pay for it.

 

You should definitely budget for what you want and anything else is considered a bonus. I have a friend who was told by her mother that she would contribute X amount of dollars to her wedding and it has been 3 years and she still has not see any of it (LO

    • Hi Everyone, So, I was cleaning out my closet and realized that I never sold off my extra wedding OOT bag stuff from our wonderful DW.   46 Daily Spanish for Dummies 30 Pool colored OOT fabric bags - approximately 13in x 13in. They lay flat.  I used them for our wedding and they were perfect for everything we needed to fit in each bag. There’s a slight shade variation in the group; I’m guessing some were cut from a different bolt of fabric.  They are also a little wrinkled from storage and will probably be wrinkled from shipping. I have three additional ones, but they somehow got something on them (likely toddler related). If needed, I can try to wash it out and send those as well. 
    • I’m getting married in six months to my foreign girlfriend. I was advised by a friend that one of the things I need to do before saying I do is to get a prenuptial agreement. Basically it’s supposed to protect my assets and properties in case my relationship with my future wife goes down the drain. I don’t know though if this is an acceptable practice when marrying Kiev ladies. I don’t want to do it if it would be insulting on her end. I need advice on this. Please help me.
    • So we are currently looking for an all inclusive resort for the wedding. We have 60 guests and found all the Dreams resorts as options and all of them gave us a quote and discounted price since it’s off season etc. Resorts in Punta Canta gave us a reasonable price, Dominicus gave us a really good deal then La Romana Resort and Spa gave us their regular price and so hard to negotiate. Will someone tell us how special is this resort that they won’t give us a good discount when all my guests are staying in their resort for 5-8 days. We are bringing $$$ in their resort and not give us a discount?  What is so special with this resort?  Can somebody recommend a beautiful resort?
