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. :)

    • 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.
    • Congratulations and welcome to the forum! There are lots of great resort options in Punta Cana and we have stayed at or toured many of them.  Are you looking for a family friendly resort or adults only?  What you interested in with nature and the ceremony? All of the resorts will have different wedding locations and there are also a variety of off resort wedding venues in Punta Cana. Please feel free to email us at info@wrighttravelagency.com if you'd like us to send resort info and check group rates. Thanks! Patty
    • Hello Everyone!  I am currently in the initial stages of planning and I am starting to look at resorts in Dominican Republic. I am thinking of having my wedding in October 2020.  I have been looking at resorts in Punta Cana, but I also want to look at other options/areas as well. The groom and I enjoy nature and we would like to incorporate that into our wedding in some way. We may also have a guest list between 50-80 people. Since we live in the US, I wanted to find a location that is accessible from major airports and is cost efficient for our guest as well as us. Can anyone share what locations they have searched or been to other than Punta Cana? Also I am okay to receive feedback on some Punta Cana locations. 
    • Thank you! I did not make these. I purchased them from a business. They are still for sale if you are interested!
