- Wedding: June 2015 - Victorian Gardens
My FI and I are very very fortunate to have our parents split the cost of our wedding. His mom basically said that whatever my parents pay, she and her husband will match. My question is for those of you who have been or are in the same situation as me and how you collected payments. Right now, my mom will put the full deposit down and my FMIL will give us a check that is half of what my mom paid. Surely there should be an easier way of doing this? Don’t get me wrong, it’s not a bad payment system but I have a feeling that as the wedding gets closer, we will want a different method. (Keep in mind, our parents aren’t very close and they never run into one another so that’s probably why they are doing things this way.) I made an excel spreadsheet to keep track of who pays what and thank goodness I did otherwise I’d lose track!
