- Wedding: March 2015
@freshflowers: I have yet to be married, however my mom told me that I could choose between A or B.
A. She contributes a total of 20K, if it’s a Destination Wedding, then that will include her and my fathers flights and accomodations and mine and FI’s flights and accomodations for 2 weeks, then whatever is left over will be wedding $. If it isn’t a Destination Wedding, then the 20K can go completely towards the wedding.
B. She gives us $15-20K to put towards a house, and we put off the wedding for a year or 2.
She told us this last week, and since we’ll need a new place to live by June of this year, we chose B 🙂
It’s kind of nice because it puts the stress of wedding planning and being homeless on hold. Then when the time comes, we’ll be paying for the wedding ourselves and we’ll only have to worry about our own opinions and ideas regarding our wedding and guest list!
ETA: I just wanted to add that for us, getting married wouldn’t change a whole lot other than how others perceive our relationship.. We have been together 5 years as of this march, and We’ve lived together for 4/5 years. We are technically already considered married as well, because we are common-law. (When you live with someone you are in a relationship with for 2+ years) So we’re already considered married by the province, and honestly, our friends and family are all very supportive of our relationship and would not see us any differently as they did before.
