Good for you! That would be really frustrating. My parents are paying for almost our entire wedding, but I havent had any issues so far. I did make it very clear in advance that if we were going to have this wedding (initally I wanted to elope and just go to Europe for a month-long honeymoon) then all of the decisions would be mine and FI’s. As long as its in the budget, its our choice – not my parents’ just because they are paying. Ive read so many posts where parents are trying to hijack the wedding and make all of the decisions – nightmare!

@adoc86:  I hate the assumption that “the person who pays has power.”

I can’t imagine gifting my friend money with a Target gift card and then telling her she MUST buy socks with it!
