So more wedding drama...LOVE IT!
Since we are having a DW in Mexico (at an all-inclusive) we are not having a rehearsal dinner.
My family is paying for the entire reception, including the hotel for some of my mom's friends-- and a few of mine ( my MOH that is coming from singapore = a $2400 flight for her.- So I am paying for her hotel).
While frustrating that my mom is paying for some of her friends, my mom is still paying for her "part" of the whole wedding -- aka the ceremony, cocktail hour, and reception.
My mom is telling me that my fiance should foot the bill for the photographer instead of a rehearsal dinner, but he doesn't think he should have to pay at all! He is well established in his career, and has saved $100's of thousands of dollars in the past. He states that he already paid for our honeymoon to Mexico, and an engagement ring...so that's enough.
I am stuck between the both of them, because my fiance doesn't feel like he should pay for anything because we are not "helping" pay for any of his friends. Who are also all in their 30's and established.
I told him I would compromise and use half of what is leftover for our friends budget and let him offer to his friends.
He should help out with the photog right? I am stuck between my mother and fiancee. HELP PLEASE I AM DESPERATE
