I can relate. I was the “enforcer” when Fiance and I were looking at venues. I kept reminding him of our budget and even priced out EVERYTHING so we had a really good idea of hidden costs and how the little things add up (like postage).

My FI’s mom who really wants to be helpful (& I truly appreciate it) keeps suggesting places that are wayyyyy out of budget. Museums, gardens, vineyards, etc. I have $4,000 & no family help (including her & her husband, not that they have to!). So it gets kind of frustrating sometimes when I get sent links that are $150/pp with a 100 person minimum + 20% gratuity + 7-8% tax. We watch wedding shows & she’ll say things like, “Oh you should do that!” about uplighting or flowers. With $4,000, I can’t even think about those things 🙂

I was annoyed a bit, but now I just take it as these are people who think you deserve a really special day & they just want to help in some way, but I totally understand where you’re coming from.
