  • poll: How would you handle the travel situation with my Grandmother?

    Pay for her ticket and get over not having spending money for the honeymoon

    Decline to pay her ticket and tell her you will send her a dvd of the wedding

    o.k.,  I’m really sorry about this situation.  But would it be cheaper for you to pay for a rental for your brother and have him bring her?  I think your mom is behaving HORRIBLY.  Having contributed nothing to your wedding, you would think she could do THAT!  I mean if she doesn’t have it, she doesn’t.  But really?  She can’t give ANYTHING?  No one else is coming from that area that you could ask for a favor? Sorry.  That’s all I’ve got.  Wish it was more!  But bottom line, if your mom and grandma can’t pay for it (notice I didn’t say WONT) then you’ll probably have to pay for something cuz I think you probably really want her there.  God Bless YOU!

    Speaking for my self it would be really sad for me if my nan didn’t come, but then I see her almost once a fortnight so we’re really close!

       If you see your nan less frequently and your not as close, then maybe it’ll be OK, although do bear in mind that she might be really upset if you don’t ship her in!!

       I sort of think that honeymoons are … a bit over rated (shoot me now!) we’re going to spend 10 days by the sea in Aberystwyth, not expensive and it’s more about getting close to one another! 

       You must decide weather a bit extra for your honeymoon is the thing or your nan is the thing – in the long one – which will you regret not having!

    Balls in your court lovely!

    @FutureMrs.M: That’s not too bad – just a one-way ticket. I feel like in the circumstances, it worked out well. Yay!

    i would look on priceline and get a really good deal or see if theres anyone else to drive her.  it would be a shame to not have grandma there.  is she tight on money from being retired.  how come she can’t buy her own ticket?

    Glad it worked out. I wanted to remind you that some airlines give senior discounts! So don’t forget to ask about that when booking her ticket!
