My parents are putting in 15k for our wedding- very generous, but my fiance both want something elegant so we agreed many times that we want to contribute a little bit if it is the differance between making big compromises or getting everything we really want for our big day. That being said since my parents are taking most of the bill they should get to influence how much money goes towards what (ie more money towards catering vs flowers).
What this has done though is that my fiance wants nice pictures, my mom wants nice food and decorations, my fiance wants me to get any dress I want and today I sort of get attacked on both sides that I am going for all expensive things. That is what everyone is pushing for! It just stinks cause at a certain point I feel like no one is on my side here, like there is a ton of money to spend but everyone is fighting me no matter what choice I make. My Maid/Matron of Honor is also my sister and has very simple taste so she is not a big help either.
I really don’t need everything, but I feel like everyone has something that is important to them so I’m getting crap about everything no matter what I do- can’t someone just be on my side and realize how much I’m trying to balance? I realize it’ll be fine and I’ll get over it but right now it kinda sucks.
