- Wedding: November 2010
When I went to look at my reception site with my fiance, mom, and sister, we all fell in love with it and wanted to put a deposit down to make sure we got it. Money was tight for us, so my sister offered to pay the deposit as an engagement gift. So…we get the first bill in the mail for the second deposit, and my fiance and I payed it. After we payed it, my mom saw the bill marked paid and said “oh…you paid that? I didn’t even realize it came I’ll take care of the next one then.” I was confused because it was never discussed that my mom would pay for the wedding. My father passed away almost 2 years ago and she has been struggling since then and I don’t want her to feel pressured. I’m trying to figure out a way to ask her what her contributions will be without her feeling pressured and I just can’t seem to get the right words together! HELP!
