- Wedding: July 2014
My parents gave us $25K for our wedding. We decided to have an intimate, immediate-family only ceremony and elegant dinner for 24 guests, go on honeymoon to New Zealand, and bank about $15k. My IL’s graciously offered to host a cocktail party celebration for 120 guests the day after our ceremony. Neither set of parents made a fuss about the guest list, our moms said “it’s you party, not ours” and they invited only a few special friends. We were able to invite 100 of our friends, plus immediate family to a fabulous party. I will be forever grateful for both sets of parents for not placing impossible demands on who to invite! Some of these posts make my head pin!
ooops, my wedding was 2013, not 2014! Don’t know how to edit that mistake!
