  • poll: What do you think of this plan

    Smart; If you can't afford it, make the appeal to friends and family

    Funny; Why so serious?

    Offensive; You should never ask for money

    I can imagine the awkward silence when it comes to telling their future kids about how their wedding/marriage came about………..!

    I don’t have any money to donate, but I’d be happy to download a Google Map to show her how to get to the courthouse if she needs. Apparently she can’t find it; I can’t think of any other reason a girl would expect random strangers and facebook friends to pay for her wedding!

    O no that video is even worse! I would be so devastated if I was told that by my boyfriend. Our wedding is coming to approximately $4000 and we were prepared to pay out ourselves. Living frugally we easily can save $1000 a month. Most engage,cents are about a year… 

    I know not everyone can save $1000 a month but if you want to get married, the courthouse is cheap. So is a BBQ. I’m having BBQ catered for 60 people for about $400 for our welcome dinner the day before. People just sadden me

    @Miss Jackrabbit:  The tone in the “but you don’t tell her that!” made me LOL!

    Basically he is only proposing if he doesn’t have to make any effort or pay for it. Kind of gross and humiliating for her, I wonder what her family and parents are thinking. It makes both of them look bad.

    I think it’s kind of funny to imagine some stranger contributing enough money to become the best man and dressing in some crazy costume for it, but I seriously doubt they will make enough money to reach their goal.  I think it would go over better if they set a more modest goal. $12,000 is a lot to ask.
