    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.

        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.
