I am paying 100% of the wedding. Work 50+ hours a week and I am a student. I don’t know how I do it…. I just do?

Fiance and I all the way. His parents have offered to loan us some money that we can pay back after the wedding. Since cash is usually given as gifts at Asian weddings, paying back the loan shouldn’t be a problem. I’m just hesitant to owe anyone that much money even if its for a couple of months!

We had a little bit of drama with this, but I guess no wedding comes without drama!

After reading about what so many Bee’s do, I’m not sure if I was right or not with this…

My parents are paying for our side of the guests (family, their friends, my friends). They requested that FI’s parents pay for their guests. At first FI’s family stated an amount that they would pay for the wedding, but that amount would not cover their guests (FI’s parents were involved in picking the venue, etc. with us). I’m not sure if they assumed my parents would pay for the rest of their guests or what. Anyways, what I have arranged with Fiance is that we will work out the proportion or percentage of each sides guests and they will pay that much.

My parents have been putting down all the deposits so far, so we are unsure if we will get the full amount from FI’s parents. Luckily my parents are willing to pay whatever for me to have my dream wedding (WITHIN reason!!) and to avoid any extra drama. Hope it turns out okay!

We split it equally three ways between Fiance and I, his dad/stepmom, and my mom/dad.

We have VERY little money to our names. My parents are paying pretty much everything, but we’re hoping to contribute about 2k by the time the wedding gets here. His parents are [hopefully, but highly unlikely] going to pay for the rehearsal dinner.
