not a damn thing!!!
not a damn thing!!!
they’re giving us a gift of $10,000 to spend how we choose.
I voted they paid for the Rehearsal Dinner. One other contribution that was signficiant, although not just for us, was to pay for airfare and the drive around a few friends, a grandmother, and an old lady friend. That was priceless.
On the other hand, my parents gave us ~$500 plus wedding gifts and of course their own hard work to make things come together the day of. I used that toward my dress. We were planning to pay for it all ourselves.
Well at first they didn’t offer, but after I was “told” a small wedding was out the question. I decided that if they want it big…they can pay for the rest. Our initial budget is about 10k with us us saving and my mom helping but after the final guestlist (mostly thier family) I think they will at least have to contribute about $4000. if not a small wedding it is and we pay for it all.
Oh Lord. This has become a major bone of discontention between the fiance and his mother. His mother has not offered to pay for everything and is actually even saying stuff like how inconvenient this wedding is for her, etc. She says she is going to help contribute toward the rehearsal dinner but to be quite honest, I am not holding my breath. *shrug*
We’re having a Mass and Reception back in Ireland after getting married in CT and they’ve offered to cover the occasion in Ireland. I’m so grateful!!!
They’re paying for flowers, the rehearsal dinner, and then giving us $3K in cash.
They’re paying for the Rehearsal Dinner and the bar.
I posted and said the Rehearsal Dinner earlier, but we have had a HUGE fight with his mom over the guest list and now his side isn’t paying for anything. *sigh*
The mister’s mother is paying for the rehearsal dinner, and directing a small amount of funds toward the catering cost for the reception.
As far as I know, they are just paying for the rehearsal dinner. We are crossing our fingers that they will offer to help out with the honeymoon too, but obviously won’t say anything unless they bring it up.
Our parents aren’t paying for anything. We’re doing it all. Ugh.
My fiancé’s family is paying for their travel expenses only, but just because they really can’t do more. My extended family and my parents’ friends represent more than half of the guests anyway.
FI’s grandparents are paying for the rehearsal dinner. We greatly appreciate everything anyone could contribute, but the majority of the cots will be covered by the budget my parents have provided. S
Nothing. Fi & I are paying for the entire wedding ourselves.
