You really can’t see that his mother’s “offensive” suggestion of a potluck is her way of helping you save money so she can be at her son’s wedding? Is your head really that far up your ass?

anthonyswife :  LOL ah sometimes I forget ridicolous people like you exist.

It wasn’t the best for YOUR budget? Honey its YOUR wedding.. not anyone else’s no one gives a crap about your budget and doing things that are way more convenient for you instead of your guests while at the same time bitching about your guests makes your a terrible host. 

Maybe if you took your own advice and managed your money properly you would have a better budget.

You are so out to lunch on your comments its laughable.

alishankay :  yeah I think your fiances family is more important than a Hawaii wedding!!! Priorities, geez. Just honeymoon and Hawaii and spare your friends and family the expensive obligation. Or elope there and have a local recepetion when you return back home. Atleast that way it wouldnt just be excluding his side.

Too bad this thread is three months old 🙁

I’m going to say this anyway.

It’s funny that OP has known her fiances family for years and years and that she loves them but they are poor because they have no money management skills… but… his family isn’t family oriented and her fiance isn’t close with them at all so he doesn’t care if they come or not.


In summary… op has intimate knowledge of the family finances while her fiance isn’t close with them whatsoever.
