I am just watching Rich bride Poor Bride on Slice, adn the couple is a Toronto couple called Terry and Meo. Is anyone else watching this? The guy is completely over the top demanding his bride watch the budget, He even crashed her dress shopping and demanded she watch the budget. The day of the wedding, he called her and she thought it was to say ilove you…except nope, it was to say “Did we pay for everything”.
This is a bit extreme but it made me wonder if any of the other bees are dealing with a stingy groom watching the budget?

My groom doesn’t care, but likely because my parents are paying for most of it.
As for the show, I know a hairdresser who was on one episode where the bride went off on her mom and he said the entire thing was staged for the camera, and she was actually a really nice lady and so was the mother. I have a feeling a LOT of the drama in these shows are staged 😛

haha I used to love that show. I have seen a few groomzillas on there lol. On one show the Dad forced his daughter to borrow a wedding dress. She didn’t like it and wanted her own dress.I would be ok with buying pre owned but getting forced to wear somene else’s dress because it’s free and my Dad is paying for the wedding! No way I would go the courthouse instead if I couldn’t afford it.
In our situation I am the stingy one, although not to that extent. I want to splurge a little but not as much as Fi and I am pretty sure we are going to go over our budget. But I still plan on reigning him in as much as possible before we end up spending double to what we planned.

My fiance tends to be very frugal, but he has been surprisingly un-stingy with wedding stuff. He just tells me to buy what I need & he’ll figure out a way to pay for it! lol. Maybe that’s because he knows I won’t go over the top.

He moans and groans about the price of the wedding, but demands quality! He wants strings, a formal sit down meal, expensive accommodation during the 4 days we are there… Sigh, lol. It’s ok, I told him if he stops whinging about the cost of the wedding, I will let him buy a gaming computer once we are married. Bribing win!

@les105: My Fiance is the same way! We watch the budget but he told me not to hold back and that he trusts that I won’t overspend on frivilous stuff.

My Fiance has trusted me 100% to stay in our budget and/or use my best judgement as to what we should go over budget with. That having been said, I have discussed basically everything with him each step of the way.
