I think your really lucky and you should be appreciative for Any help with the cost of your wedding. Both of my FI’s parents have passed away and so has my father, we are getting zero help with our wedding, there is no one contributing to a single thing. At this point I would just be thrilled for a relative to offer to pay for my cake or something, but its not happening. So we have been saving and paying for everything, and we are only in our 20’s. 

Most every couple I know has to pay for parts of their wedding. I think it’s really silly for you to get upset that your dad didn’t want to buy you an engagement dress, it justs sounds really immature to me.

@Mrsgurzakovic: Hi there. I don’t think you sound silly whatsoever. You are completely entitled to feel the way you do. There may be people in the world who are in a worse situation than you, but that doesn’t make your feelings any less valid.

I do understand what you are saying.. but I think a lot of brides go through the same things these days. Honestly, although it is in our culture for the father of the bride to pay for the wedding, I am not at all expecting my parents to foot the bill for everything. I believe that if I’m old enough to get married then I should be old enough to help pay for some things. I would hate to see my parents spend all of their money on me when I know they also have to take care of my brothers and sisters.

 

I’m not at all saying that your feelings are wrong, I guess I just look at things a little differently.
