@thewheelsonthebus  I know!  That’s what I was thinking!!! when the event planner told me the price of alcohol pp….  I was like….”so if I do an open bar it’s 5.00 an hour…. what if they drink 6 drinks that hour?”  She said, it’s just 5/hr!    If it would have been a tabbed bar it would’ve been $5.00 per drink!  It was a complete no brainer to me!  My dad is still having a hard time understanding how amazing this is!

My fiance is like this…I told him that by all means, if he could find someone who could get me the same thing for cheaper, I was all for it. He’ll spend about five mintues looking and then be like “Oh, I guess that is an okay deal. Yeah, all right.”

@thewheelsonthebus Oh wow, well I guess it could be worse (for me, not you, that’s pretty bad). How much does your mom think these things should cost? This is totally what would happen to me if Future Mother-In-Law was funding the wedding, everything is too much. And yeah that bar price is totally amazing. Maybe you should find the average costs for these things and show it to your mom?

One thing I’ve done to show Fiance prices are reasonable is I go to my local board on the knot and they have a thread where people list their vendors and how much they paid for them. So Fiance can see what the average is in our area and realizes yes, it is a good deal. Or maybe she has a friend who’s daughter has recently been married that she could compare with?
