- Wedding: December 1969
My family is paying for my dress and accessories, all the flowers, bouquets, bouteneirs, centerpieces, decorations, and even the bridesmaid dresses. Also my cousin is even paying for the photos, and my other cousin (he’s a groomsman) is paying for my fiances tux. My fiance and I are paying for the food (180 people) and cake. This is a lot from my family and us. His family keeps saying, "if you need any help with anything let me know"…but when I told his mom the ladies were going to look at flowers she said okay…but never went with us. How do I ask them to pay for the rehersal or the alcohol (or just help out a bit)? I don’t want to sound pushy or mean…but I feel like my family is doing it all and his is not a part of this. His family is not hurting for money or anything…his mom is always going away and his dad is always shopping! I just wish they would contibute a small bit to this day.
