Same here sad.gif It sucks but its not FI's fault he was born into a weird & broken family. My parent's aren't that well-off either, I'm just starting law school, and FI went back to school- this should be interesting.

We are paying for this all on our own also. But we said it from the beginning that it was going to be like this. We didnt want to expect anything then get nothing. MIL said she would give us a few thousand and came up with $O.OO cents last minute. Overall, we paid for everything and not complaining. It is what it is..

love this thread! my mom only had 14 people at her wedding, and on top of that i am the only daughter and granddaughter. My parents went to a DW and fell in love with the idea so they are paying for pretty much everything. MY FI's parents refuse to give money because it's his 2nd marriage and they already contributed 10K to the bitch that cheated then left him after a year (hes only 27 and we've been together 2 years...). I'm trying not to be bitter about it because they stated that they have the money but they already contributed to "1 wedding". I consider myself lucky that my parents are willing (and able) to bear the cost and we decided to help and pay for our honeymoon!!! I agree with Virg though, we just avoid the topic so its not awkward!!

Dad said he would pay for our trip but I refused - our wedding our problem.

 

FMIL said she would give us a wedding present of cash! Yeah £200 lol apparently thats what she has given all the kids (there are 4 including FI) lol I said oh how did she pay for a wedding with £200 lol

 

In other words she paid for the other weddings and then gave them £200 but FI just gets the £200! lol I couldn't care less it's less to tell her to shove up her arse if you ask me lol

The FI and I are doing everything on our own. I have had a couple family members complain at the fact that we're living together and we're going to be engaged for over a year and a half before the wedding. The DW is the way to go. It saves us money and we don't have to invite those annoying extended family members or your mother's friends who you absolutely hate. :)

    • we ended up using Facebook messenger when we were in Mexico - the hotel had free wifi and at least 1 person from each family/couple had FB on their phone already - it was pretty easy to communicate among guests "hey, we're heading to the beach bbq for lunch." or "everyone is hanging at the small pool today".  a plus was that some people tried to get a hold of me via FB on the day of the wedding and I was totally not checking my phone - they were asking if the wedding was outside given the rain forecast, thankful my mom, MOH and a few other friends were on the group and could respond for me :)

    • 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.
