@thewheelsonthebus: i’m surprised that almost everything isn’t paid for and that she’s doing this a month before the wedding. I’m sorry this is happening.

THIS SUCKS. BUT, you are lucky in that you work there and your manager would probably cut you some slack on paying the balance that normal brides wouldn’t get. I honestly wonder sometimes, and I’m sorry to go off tangent but since you work with this you might know, what would happen if a couple just DIDN’T have the money by the wedding? Would your venue not allow them to have the reception, or give them time to pay it off, or take them to court…?

But that does suck about your mom. Why is she cutting back? Did it end up costing more than she estimated or is she just being crabby?

listen, it’s going to be ok, i wouldnt tell you to take a loan, but what about the dinners, can you scale down on the dinner instead of seated dinner, do a family buffet style or buffet style all together to cut down the price per person, and no alcohol, but soft drinks, do a cash bar.  scale down on pictures, flowers, favors (if you can). 


good luck! 🙂
