Congrats on your engagement!

Well….you’re going to have to find a way to tell them that the other families aren’t in a position to contribute and while yes, they have an expectation, there really is no “rule” that every family has to help out. I would have this conversation with them alone (not in front of the other families) and somehow, you’re going to have to position yourself as being in charge of this otherwise your mom and stepdad might take over the whole process.

Also, I would stress to them that you’d like to enjoy being engaged for a little bit before having to make some big decisions (aka, not deal with drama just yet)


Good luck!

Have you told them the date yet?  We got to postpone drama by being engaged for a year before we chose a date.

Congrats and good luck!
