@Cougar09:  Have you tried bringing it up to your family? I’m one of those super independent people too. I did the whole “I’m going to pay for it all myself” thing for about a month then totally caved. Are they able to help you with your wedding since they’re already helping a sister currently? If they can, I’d ask them to help you cover your biggest bill at least. That way you can have a big chunk taken care of and still be pretty independent by taking care of the rest. Also, has FI’s family offered to chip in? I’d sit with Fiance and figure out how much you too can or are willing to contribute and what kind of wedding you want. There’s no harm in you and Fiance splitting the wedding…his family can help out with his part and your family can help you with yours.
