I’m so sorry.

(((hugs)))

 

Why did the price go up SO drastically?  That’s almost 4k more…….

I’m so sorry.  I also am wondering why there are such a difference in the price?

I am confused.  You originally had 80 guests and then now you have 120.  That’s an additional 40 guests.  How did you not figure your $6K quote would not be increased for the additional guests?  Your original quote was for 80 guests, not 120.

Yeah, if you add 40 more people, obviously the price will go up…

Yeah that’s the problem with adding more guests.  Did someone push you to add more guests?  If so, maybe they should help pay the difference for those guests.

I’m sorry but  the person paying for the wedding must’ve been told that more people would be added and the price would go up.  If they were in the know, they are aware of the price increase and are prepared to pay for it.  If you didn’t tell the person who is paying for the wedding, then that’s a real shame.  If the person paying was aware of the additional guests, then they must’ve been willing to pay for the extra costs. 

I am confused as to why you’re so upset.  If the people paying for the wedding didn’t want the money being spent that way, then they should’ve spoken up a long time ago. 

If nobody is complaining about the extra costs, why are you so concerned?  Are people giving you a hard time about it?  If not, why even sweat it?

If the cost of the wedding (equivalent to a car and a year of college education) were such a concern, why weren’t things nipped in the bud a long time ago?

Lots of people go into debt for there weddings.  Some people spend like $80.000 on a wedding.  My parents are payting for $5000 of our wedding so we have to pay the additional $5000 or so.  Luckally, we have both been working for a few years and have money saved.

I don’t get why you’d invite 200 guests if you only wanted 80 to show??  That seems like a lot that you banked on to not show.  Yikes!  Well, I hope you have a great day and loads of fun!

I understand how you feel….we  sent out more invitations than we can afford but with the size of our family and how our relationships are, we just had to do it.  Our wedding is at least a 3 hour drive for every one and many will have to fly from out of state so I am crossing my fingers that we have a lot of “no” rsvp’s.  I wish I had something brilliant to tell you because then I could take my own advice…but I don’t.  I just want you to know that I understand what you are feeling and it definitely takes away from some of the excitement.  My Fiance and my parents are paying for everything too and I know it is a toll on my parents but there isn’t much I can do about it.

Take a deep breath. Relax. Enjoy your wedding. All will be ok. Even if it takes a bit to get over, if you can step back and enjoy the day, it will be worth it. Good luck! I will keep you in my thoughts and prayers, but hopefully things will all work out in the end.
