jessiquh :  

Actually, when I was talking about wedding packages with my dad, he surprised me and said he was planning on paying for the whole thing.

I was actually in tears because I was so taken aback by the kindness of it.

You know… the opposite of having a discussion telling him to man up and pay for my party.

Your attitude is gross.

Oh for the love of Cthulhu merciful and mild…

You aren’t engaged.

Your 18-year old boyfriend of 6 months doesn’t know that you’ve been having wet dreams about a pretty princess day for the past 4 years, and that he’s just a stand-in.

Your father is a wise man.

Sansa85 :  bahaha… Well someone has to be a man  for you when your marrying an 18 year old boy and you are throwing your toys out of the pram when your boyfriend rightly sticks to a ring budget he can afford…

jessiquh : honestly  with this post and  the other you sound much too immature to be getting married. Most adults realise that dreams and reality are two entirely separate things. They also understand that you have no right to anyone’s money but your own. Pay for your own wedding and if you want a bigger more expensive ring, get a job and pay for it yourself…

I’d also like to add that I’m certain(willing to bet money on it) that no bee is jealous of you and your situation and that our collective standards and behaviour are higher than your own. smh 🙁

If you can’t afford it you shouldn’t be asking someone else for it. It’s a different story if he offers to help or is demanding you invite certain family members. Like my parents literally had over 100 people they wanted to invite so I had to put my foot down and tell them unless they were helping us it wasn’t happening (they had already previously said they would help but at this point I needed a number so I could stop stressing, so it wasn’t really asking actually…) 

If he’s not demanding you do specific things you have no right to ask.

jessiquh :  So its expected yet you don’t think he will pay for it and he hasn’t offered. Okay sure. 

Enjoy being married to an unemployed husband and living in your mother’s house.

Well. Since you are oldschool and all. Have you ever thought about not using technology and living out in the woods or a cave?

jessiquh :  lol you’re hilarious. You act like tradition entitles you to be a brat about this (it doesn’t btw). Our tradition is the brides parents pay, but I in no way expected my parents to pay.
