Had a conversation earlier about cutting some costs back to pay for 3 family members that cannot afford the trip. Understand the concept but sooooo disappointed.
Cutting the Budget HELL!

Wow your a lot nicer then me. I wouldnt pay for anyones trip, unless it was a parent that had a darn good reason!

I understand how you feel, we are trying to cut back on our budget as well so I can pay for my parents to be there. It makes things a little more difficult.

I'm in the same boat. I think we have to pay for both sets of our parents. Its going to take a huge hit on our budget and have to cut back on everything else. Its disappointing but worth it to have our parents there.

I know how you feel about cuttingt the budget. Not to pay for someone else; though I would have paid for any parents if they really couldnt afford it.
I got made redundant in June and didnt get another job until September so 4 months with no money coming in. But I think its made me realise you dont have to spend a fortune to get the things you want x

Hang in there, I don't think any wedding is complete without budget stress. If we were all loaded this would all be so much more fun lol.

Totally sympathize. My FI and I are already paying for the wedding ourselves. I went from having my mom buy her own ticket, room, dress and my dress.... to now paying for my own dress, her dress, her room and ticket. I was a little embarrassed at first, my FI comes from a more financially stable family than I do, but he has been so great and not at all resentful (as I feared). Ultimately, I love my mother and it just wouldn't be the same without her. So we made the cuts where we needed to.... I'm okay parting with the extras I "had" to have. I HAVE to have my family there. If you're like me and family is most important, then in the end, you'll make peace with it. In the meantime- I totally get it, it's disappointing for sure.

I've definitely gotten over it. It is more important to have the ones we love there.
