First off, ((HUGS)) for having to deal with such a tough situation.

That said, I’m surprised when you quoted $15k-$20 for a “cheap” wedding. Granted, NYC is probably a lot different than Minnesota or some of the other locations, but there are TONS of bees who have rockin’ weddings for $5k or less! So having that much to plan with must be extremely exciting!!

Not quite sure if you were venting about Future Father-In-Law not being sober (therefore, serious) about contributing money to the wedding, or what but please please PLEASE do not feel guilty for the choices he makes. MY FI’s family is the same way – his mom got sick a few weeks ago and he was feeling like it was his fault because we moved across the country – which it isn’t, not at all. Your Future Father-In-Law is a grown man, he makes 100% of his own decisions, and he can choose to drink or not drink. I hope you and Fiance don’t feel too burdened by his family’s decisions. Best of luck planning, and keep your chin up – you’re going to have a fabulous wedding!!!

((HUGS)) so glad that he’s coming up with the money, if wedding planning etc is making him want to drink, definitely when you start talking weddings, have some juices or bottles of water around for him.  that has to be hard.  also, are you in nyc (city portion)?  can you perhaps have a wedding outside of the city. there is this great wedding venue in queens where you can have the reception/ceremony site AND they have chivari chairs, it’s quite lovely and cost efficient, especially if you are diy’g a lot of the other things.
