I think you and your Fiance need to get on board together about this…then he needs to talk to Future Mother-In-Law for you…

 

good luck!

The last couple of wedding “breakfasts” I’ve been to have been pretty informal. All the guests covered their own meals. It’s kind of nice when everyone is staying at the hotel and meet up for food in the morning. But I don’t think it’s necessary and I don’t think you’re obligated to pay for the meal.

@helenberrycrunch: Hahaha! Love it!!!

 

@lefeymw: You’re not crazy, you totally don’t need a breakfast after. How about modifying helenberrycrunch’s idea and say that you want to spend the next day with your husband?

@helenberrycrunch: LOL

I think you’re doing the right thing by letting them plan it.  We are running into issues like this as well–FMIL said we HAVE to have a rehearsal dinner, though she isn’t paying for it, so we’re doing that.  She’s getting brunch w/ my Fiance the day of (I’ll be conveniently unavailable) and my mom is having a party the next evening.  Apparently she also wants us to host some sort of brunch thing at our house the next day.  Hope they like messy houses and cereal with milk because I’m gonna be busy packing!

Mama Dear gets crazy notions.

She is convinced that Mr dear asked her for 5000 dollars for the Honeymoon.

Firstly, he would never. Secondly, we aren’t asking for any help from anyone. Lastly, 5000 is a ton of money!

Does she want YOU guys to pay for the breakfast? Or is she saying that she’d be willing to pay for it? Would she be willing to do a brunch just for her family/friends, and say that you guys are not going to be able to attend due to last minute necessities for the honeymoon?

I would keep trying to discuss these issues with Fiance. Since you were recently laid off, it seems like a perfectly reasonable and understandable reason that you guys could use the money for something other than brunch…
