Learn from my mistake

Recommended Posts

Don't tell your parents how much money his parents are contributing and vice versa. There will be bitterness and tension. Unless both of your parents are supercool in which case, consider yourself lucky!

I'm with Savannah -- neither of our parents are contributing anything more than paying for our respective wedding day attire, and paying for their own rooms/flights. Other than that, I guess we're lucky to be avoiding all potential money conflicts between parents, since we're picking up the tab for everything else! It's a hefty burden, but in the end we think it's the best way for us to go to avoid any "who contributed more" kinds of situations!

 

I can understand that it is a source of tension and I'm sorry you had a bad experience -- money matters can always be counted on for driving a wedge between even the most well-intentioned people!

Sorry to hear you ran into this problem...That's the one reason I'm glad we are paying for everything ourselves!!

We luckily haven't had any issues (yet)...but FI's parents demanded to know how much my parents were contributing before they told us how much they'd contribute. And even then, they decided to contribute 1/4 the amount. So I don't know why they cared so much...??

    • Sorry, I can't remember what service we used right now. We had our wedding in Berkshire two years ago, it was fantastic, I wonder what yours be like! We got a professional wedding photographer in Berkshire to make everything perfect, because you know what it's like - many people simply don't believe a word from photographers. But the photos were great, I was like whew! We made it!

    • STAY AWAY FROM CARIBBEAN EMOTIONS PHOTOGRAPHY!!!! Michael Weiler is a SCAMMER he took our money and disappeared!! we hired him as our photographer for our wedding back in November, he gave us a run around for the first week or 2 saying our pictures are almost ready and then disappeared. we have been sending him emails, texts and phone calls for the past 4 months and he is now where to be found. I made a fake account to email him and he answered right away as he is only interested in taking peoples money and not give anything in return.
    • For weddings you should definitely use a travel agent as there are promotions and amenities with a group block that you will not get by booking individually like comped rooms, upgrades, spa treatments, etc.
