Who paid for your dress

I think each family is different, and in these economic times, I don't think anyone can assume that family can or will contribute to the wedding. My husband and I are very fortunate to have parents that can afford to contribute something and are very giving people.

Our philosophy has always been from the beginning, this is our day and our choice to do this therefore it is our responsibility to pay for it. If our parents chose to help out I'll happily accept but I've always had issues about approaching people for money and also have no problem just working within my own budget.

I am not expecting anything from anyone!! My FI and I will pay for this ourselves. If we get anything from anyone we will happily take it but it our wedding and our decision to have this destination wedding. So in my book...with everyone paying their way to go it's their way of contributing.

I paid for every single red cent of my wedding, not one penny was given to us by either side of our families. Like you, my father passed away and I didn't expect any money from anyone and planned on paying for it all myself. My mother did mention that she wants to pay for it and plans to pay me "back" for it. She's going through terrible financial times at the moment.
Good luck, I hope you get it all sorted out!
