    I don’t think you should necessarily ask for monetary help from anybody…but do you have any friends you can go dress shopping/venue hunting/etc with? Also, your Fiance is your family now, the wedding is about you two joining together, a marriage is a partnership, definitely lean on him 🙂

    @soontobeasheldon13:  When you say “help” do you mean money or support?  In half your post you talk about being lonely and not having family, in the second half you talk about affording things…


    It’s fine to ask FI’s family for support, I’m sure they’re interested in being involved unless you have a reason to believe they aren’t.


    But if money is the issue just plan the wedding you and Fiance can afford.

    Monetary help? No. It’s your wedding and no one other than you and your fiance should be paying for it unless someone offers some money on their own, unprompted from you. Just do what you can afford.

    If you mean just help planning and deciding things, then sure! Ask away. Get some people to go dress shopping with you. Ask your in-laws for suggestions or opinions if you have a good relationship with them.

    @soontobeasheldon13:  do you await monteray help or supportive decision making help. I don’t think anyone should ask for monetary assistance for a wedding.  Support (someone to go dress shopping with you or help you pic a venue) is fine.

    I hope you’re feeling better. It’s hard whenever family is small and don’t maintain a lot of close contact. I live states away from my relatives & it does get me down sometimes. But, you got a barrel of positive responses here and I read that you’ve chosen your maids so your fun will probably turn up a few notches from now on out. Have a wonderful time planning your wedding.

    In regards to dress shopping and decisions if you would like help and value their opinion or even want to use this to bridge the gap with some of your extended family then yes, contact and include them. As for money, no dont ask them. If you are not close, it would really be weird to do that.
