Can't afford a Wedding Party (DW Ettiquette)
Posted 06 October 2008 - 04:13 PM
We are paying for the wedding ourselves so we aren't having a wedding party. FI keeps saying he has a BM but he hasn't booked so we'll see about that lol Even if he has we aren't paying anything for him if he wants to come with his 3 kids thats his choice i'm certainly not paying for him.
I've decided I'm going to get the 3 women on my side a small gift but thats it - it may sound mean but I don't know any of the people FI has invited apart from FMIL (and I wish I didn't know her!) and his BM's wife so I'm buggered if i'm buying them anything FI certainly wont! lol
I think you just do what the girls say be very straight up with people and until they book don't believe they are actually coming x

I was planning on waiting to see who's confirmed to come and THEN ask a MOH to stand for me. The most important people have already said they'd be there (immediate family anyway). I was planning on asking my sister, my FI's sister, or one of my gf's who book.
I'm just starting to save now for a January/February 2010 wedding. I don't know if I can afford to pay for another person to come to PV on top of everything else.
Any thoughts or advice?
(By the way, what's an AHR??)

However, I'm starting my new life with the love of my life. He's a surfer and I'm a sun-worshipper. We are a match made in heaven and we're getting married on the sands of Hawaii come hell of high water.
My FI and I are footing most of the wedding bill, so having a DW was a major cost-saver. We did pay for my niece's dress (Jr. BM) and her airfare, but otherwise the remainder of the bridal party paid their own way. We communicated our monetary concerns to everyone and everyone has been very understanding....even my mom!
