Anyone not giving presents to parents at the wedding?
Need some advice guys! We are paying for our entire wedding which was a positive choice we made to avoid drama from my parents. They did offer but the use money as a way of getting some control: They have gone from two extremes: being all over us with comments and opinions to basically never mentioning our wedding or asking about it because they are not ‘involved’. They basically think that being involved and getting a say are the same thing!
The only thing we really took on board from the list of demands is that we have booked a venue with accommodation on site which we planned to do anyway as our venue isn’t near where our families live or where we live. So they have two nights accommodation in a lovely house in the grounds of our venue with everyone else. This was included in our package so we are covering the cost which I think is more then generous.
I am now sorting out flowers and was asked if we are doing flowers for the mums. I know this is the ‘done thing’ but neither sets of parents are contributing and honestly the way my parents are behaving they clearly thing they are owed vip treatment all weekend (Mum demanding she should be included in hair and make up and not offering to pay!). I’m always not keen on flowers being handed out during speeches anyway but I feel like they shouldn’t get presents? I know if I don’t I’ll start world war three!
