Your first mistake was SHARING PRIVATE INFO.

Honestly what your Wedding costs is no ones business but your own (or whoever is paying for whatever they are responsible to pay for)

Sorry, it is a tough lesson to learn in this modern age where people share everything… best to keep Financial Info, Sex, Religion and Politics out of “small talk” because more than likely it’ll come back to bite you on the bum (and sometimes folks have NO COUTH at all… and they’ll drop your private info into a very public conversation)

Sorry, I don’t have any better news… (( HUGS )) because, I am sure their comments hurt you.

That’s seriously irritating. But just remember to keep your secrets to yourself with this person next time. Have the wedding you want – if you can afford it, that’s great and you shouldn’t worry about what others have to say. 

I’m annoyed for you though.

I have to say I totally understand. BUT I have total respect for you for saying that YOU are going to SAVE and WORK to get it. You should be proud of that. So many girls want what they want but expect it to be handed to them. If you work hard and save you DESERVE the wedding of your dreams! And don’t let anyone tell you different!!!

Good for you.  Stick up for yourself and do what you want and what you need.  

We are having a similar issue with a groomsman who keeps butting in about our budget.  We’re on a very small budget for our area, and everytime I ask for help with something or mention going to do something wedding-related, he says something snarky.  He trolled me yesterday on facebook and FI got PISSED, called and put him in his place.  It’s one thing to offer alternatives or help; it’s another to speak out of ignorance and spite.

GOOD LUCK from someone who commiserates!

That’s really not too bad for 100 people at a nice place for the venue and food (and drink?) (and taxes!… does this include the service fee too?!). I’d just not share this info with other people you know in real life.

I totally get where youre coming from – I had this yesterday with a work friend who said my shoes were too expensive and a waste of money and was really discouraging and I thought “hey, it’s MY money and I have a piggy bank and saving every single mth so I can have a beautiful reception for family and friends, and I saved and cut back on a lot of things, but this pig money was for my shoes”.

Mistake #1: telling how much it was.

Mistake #2: caring what ppl tell me because maybe her idea is to spend the money on other wedding things.

Then I told myself that our priorities are spending $ on the reception and were doing that and ppl shd have a really nice time. Any money left over I can spend where I want because Im not a selfish person at all, I saved for the money, and Ill wear them again later.

My rant over lol. I just wanted to give u some support and tell u it seems to be a general thing ppl seem to complain about! 😉
