I would say something like “we’re going to use the money you offered for our DJ, we met with him last week, and he requires a deposit of …….”

Maybe that’s a lie (likely!) but it gives their money a job, which will be satisfying for the giver (hopefully) and I would think politely get the ball rolling on receiving their generosity?

I find myself in the same situtation! What I do is consider what means a lot to each specific person who offers to contribute money, and match it to something wedding-related. For example, my sister loves jewelry, and so I told her that I love would to take her up on her offer and use that money towards our rings. For the designer, I tell that that I would love to use their money towards the invitations. For the foodie, their money will go toward our cake, etc.

It means a lot to them to know what, specifically, we are using their money towards. And it means so much to us to have them help out financially (we, too, are paying for it ourselves).

Congrats on the engagement! I’m sure your wedding will be absolutely beautiful!

My neighbor was talking to me about the sponsor idea and I was just amazed. She too is hispanic where I am not. My mouth just dropped open when she told me about this concept. I cant believe people are so generous and do such things! My family would look at me like I was on drugs if I asked them to do this for me, haha. That is a really neat thing to have in your culture! I am SO jealous! Because really, who needs the money after the wedding? Most people need it before to even HAVE a wedding! lol Once again, so very jealous!
