I’m Engaged! Now What? 10 Questions I Have Now That I’ve Said “Yes”

Who Should Pay?

Speaking of money, when you planned your wedding, did you raise funds on your own or also receive help from family? Both of my parents are retired, living on pensions, so I don’t want to bug them about helping out financially. But my fiancé’s parents still work and/or have income coming in, so my partner says they, as well as his older sister, will help. However, I don’t want such contributions to pressure my own family members into thinking they need to step up and pay up (my sister has already said she would have no problem doing so). I almost feel like keeping it small (there’s that again!) and paying on our own is the right way to go. What do you think?
