"Do you want the dress?"
I can't believe she said she likes the dress. What is wrong with the daughter? Are the couples so broke to let this happen to them? They should have just gone to the court house to get married and avoid this crap and embarrassment.
As a parent the 2 things you know when you have a daughter is 1. Sweet 16 2. Wedding. Right there you should be saving years before so when the time comes you make your daughter or maybe son as happy as they can be on that special day. Most of the time it only happens 1s. That fact that she wont do something special for her daughter is sad. If that were my mom i would sit her to the side and say if we cant have a decent wedding where I chip in then you are not coming simple and ill plan it myself!!!
I don't get the point. Why do they do it. Why do they save money if they aren't going to buy anything? They are just going to uncomfortably live an unfulfilling life until they die, even worse if you have children/people who depend on you because you're just affecting them in a negative way. And then what happens to the money? Well guess what, you can't take it with you after you die.
My parents paid over $10,000 on my sisters wedding… it’s events like weddings that I feel it’s acceptable to spend some money.. I mean it’s the day your child gets married.. it’s the most beautiful, important, special day of their life and it should be treated as such.. you shouldn’t have to get married in a school gym because your cheapskate Mum wants to budget under $1000
I can do better just ≥400$ 🤡
I'm a cheapskate too but not that extreme...
I can't say that I'm a cheapskate...I'm just good at handling money.
-Dress&attire: Do it by myself cuz I'm already educated in sewing=150$
-Cake: Just bake it/don't need it(I don't like cakes tbh)=0$~7$
-Small banquet: My family will handle it=25$
-Only invite family as a guest
-get married in a garden or just in my house=0$
-no need dj...just let family be a dj(if they want to)=0$
-electric&water bill for doing it all at home=≥100$
I hate making blanket statements about people when I watch these videos because the reality is we see a very small portion of their life and who they are, but if you do this to your kids you're a bad mom Point Blank Period. Their wedding isn't about you and if you don't want to pay at least stand aside and let them work it out for themselves or with their partners family don't force her into a wedding she doesn't want because of YOUR lifestyle
That's a lot, and it's her owns daughters responsibility to pay for her own wedding. No one has to even have a wedding, when she can just go to the court house and get her marriage certificate. The only thing she has to pay for is a minister. Make it simpler. Don't cry and complain if you can't pay for your own wedding. Having a wedding is so cliche, it's just a way to pay uncle sam more taxes.
My parents got married in their apartment my mom wore her navy blue dress suit and they had my grandma and uncle there just to sign the witness sheet and then everyone went home! And then my parents had their honeymoon in Niagara Falls! And are still married 33 years! If these two really love each other this will be fine
Oh my God this reminds me of my wedding from my ex-husband. Come to think of it it was super cheap too. They got my dress from a thrift store for $75 it was the perfect fit and the perfect style I couldn't have asked for a better dress. All our flowers we got from like Michael's or somewhere like that and they turned out absolutely beautiful realistic looking. They made horderves for food. I can't remember if it was his aunt or his mom that made the food but they were both good cooks and my mom provided pretty bowls and plates which were real. My dad keeps bees so we had free local honey as favors. The wedding was about 8 or 9 hundred dollars.
Not that I condone this, but my wedding (in 1986) cost $1000. I used my prom dress (white lace), our pastor gifted us his services and the church (which had chairs, not pews so the reception was there too). Another member of the church who was a florist, gifted us $1000 worth of flowers, The bridesmaids wore pretty matching dresses that were practical and could be used to church or going to dinner, all the same kind, (forgot the prices, but really reasonable), we rented tuxes for the guys including the ring bearer, bought a cute dress for the flower girl, we had a really nice cake made from a bakery and the food was pot luck. And someone gifted us and photographer and videographer.
