Jesus Dollface- no need to address that to all Brides!
I agree, my parents have said they want to pay for their family and friends and while we very much appreciate it, we're budgeting as if they aren't giving us any
i dont expect any money of my parents - they are getting my dress for me so that is all i expect from them - me and OH wouldnt dream of either sets of parents to give a huge amount to the wedding - we've always looked after it ourselves
we never discussed how the wedding was paid for and tbh i haven't been to any friends weddings where i knew how it was funded. you are right - it's no-one's business.
my parents did contribute as did DH's however we did not broadcast this nor did anyone ask us ! my parents paid for a long education for me and Dad had always said that they would not contribute to a wedding however when we got engaged they told us what they would contribute and i reminded him of what he always said and he told me that he did that so I wouldn't expect it and would plan without it. it worked !!
I have never told anyone anything about how much our wedding cost, what we paid, what we got, what we didnt get. My parents did give me a gift but only the same gift that my four siblings got and that was gifted to me before a wedding was even on the cards. TBH I would much prefer to have my parents than to have their money or anything that might be left after they are gone!
O deep breathes doll face
My parents or h2bs parents arent paying for a thing
I know ur worked up while writing that but no need at all to address all brides-thats unfair
my parents gave us a present as did my inlaws - very kind and generous - but we paid for the wedding ourselves....why assume all or even most brides expect to be paid for??
Myself and H2B are paying for the wedding, My mum works part time and my Dad was a building contractor til the big R hit and now he is out of work, I'd never expect my parents to pay for our wedding regardless of how much money they have or haven't as it happens.
