@MrsWinTraining2014:  Wah? I am groaning as well. This is a tradition that needs to go away imo. My parents didn’t even get me a card when I got married and then demanded a “thank you gift” for coming and taking pictures at the event. :/

@MrsWinTraining2014:  LOL! Is it bad that the second I got engaged all the people at work automatically assumed my parents would be paying for the wedding? I had to explain that FI and I, as well as my older sister and her FI, would be paying for it ourselves as we didn’t feel it was right to accept money from anyone. I left out the part about my parents not offering to pay because they have no money to offer, but even if they did we would want to pay for it on our own.

I think its just a generational thing. More and more couples are getting married later on and have the money available to pay for the wedding themselves.
