We got the “you should buy a house” thing ALL THE TIME during my engagement.  Hello, I owned a house, he owned a house, the LAST thing we needed was ANOTHER HOUSE!

By the way – married people said that kind of stuff to us as well.

Yeah….I hear you.

There is always somebody that just HAS to tell me their point of view.

I just nod…and smile.

Nothing irritates me more than when people start making assumptions like that.  It’s your wedding, people only have to decide if they are coming or not (assuming they are invited).  Everything else is not for them to worry about!

I was so pissed when FI told his friend (now ex friend) that he was planning on asking me to marry him all his friend said was ‘don’t waste all your money on the wedding’. First off, no congrats, secondly I don’t find having a nice wedding to be ‘wasting money’. He told FI to spend money on the honeymoon, not the wedding. And he’s married!

If we lived in a part of the country where $25000 could even startto get you into a house, perhaps we would have heard that. But with down payments starting at $100,000 for a 2-bedroom fixer-upper, I say have the damn party! 😉

@ShutterbugCait:  I’m married, too (had a beautiful pretty fancy wedding) and I, too, agree to spend more money on the honeymoon. That’s one thing i’d change if I went back!

Completely understand, my mom gasps everytime I tell her the cost of something, or that the average wedding is upwards of 20,000.  She is a fan of small, low cost, quick weddings…so I think this is where that is coming from.  Oh well, if you can afford it, make yourself happy, and don’t let anyone else tell you what they would do with your money.

I hear you!!  It’s so annoying.  Yes, I’m planning a wedding and no what we spend on it is NOT YOUR BUSINESS.  Sheesh people.  It’s like people’s common decency gets chucked out the window lol.  I dunno why weddings make people so nosey.  It’s nobody’s business but yours, your fiances, and y’all’s parents/whoever is contributing to the budget.  So annoying

I was about the last person to get married so I got that from a lot of married people (hmmmm…I remember your wedding and you didn’t think it was a waste of money then…) sorry if yours wedding sucked but mine was great!

We also owned 2 houses. If we could have sold one, I would have blown even more money

When someone on here asks if it was worth it, it definitely was! They should go over budget, it was so worth it:)

Tell them “that’s nice, but I don’t tell you how to spend your money.”

@crayfish:  I want a nice honeymoon and we will have one but I want my dream wedding too. I just found it rude it was the only thing he said to FI regarding getting married. Their entire wedding cost about $500 and they had a Honeymoon Fund registry so I guess they had different priorities. We go on vacations often, we don’t get married often.

Preach it! People in real life don’t have any idea how much we spent on our wedding but even with their estimates they always give us a hard time.

I see it this way…you spend your money how you want and I’ll do the same. I wanted a big lavish wedding and I got one and YOU didn’t have to contribrute one cent. Isn’t that awesome?

*sigh*
