- Wedding: October 2012
ok so low budget bride here 2,500
My mom is dishing out 2.000 thank gosh or my weding would have been- non exsistant.
My parents just go divorced in November- and my Dad had that gaul to get remarried and throw a real wedding-
now I don’t want to sound a brat- but he spent 800 on just his wedding- so 800 isn’t alot but…
it is his SIXTH marriage- and he knew I was getting engaged-
The problem is now he is claiming he can only give 300 and says how he can barley afford that.
The other thing is he married forien woman and has to pay 4,000 to keep her in the US.
ok so I am upset about it but can’t do anything about it and I decided to just budget and be thankful for the 300 that is covering our chappel fee and a photographer.
BUT my mom drags it out.
she complains about being tight on money all the time and then tells me not to feel bad and she is just mad she is putting up so much and him so little.
I don’t know what to do.
She wants the invites to say that she is annoucing the wedding and leave my dad off- or be on a to seperate lines-
Fi and I don’t want anyone to specificaly anounce the wedding beacuse both parents are divorced- plus we are getting small invites to save money so we need the space for like important things like um i don’t know DATE AND TIME!
i am trying to sell some of my stuff to help pay for the wedding too cause I know no one HAS to pay for the wedding….
I am my parents only child let alone only daughter and…
all the drama of it.. is… well just that drama..
so what do I say to my mom?
do I say anything to my dad?
My mom went over and asked him to spray paint some stuff for the wedding and he said no so she blew up on him about how he won’t help with money he could at least help with time-so now he is trying a little bit but I honestly am reall hurt that he is putting all his time and money into his new wife ( and no I do not like her so that doesn’t help anything)
I really am tring not to be a brat but I can’t help how I feel.
On the upside I am making the budget I have work and hardly giving up anything- its been alot of work but I just hope in the end to be happy.
