Money matters can be a stingy talk – especially when it is something that needs to be discussed with your family and his family. How to talk to your parents about your wedding budget? We have some tips for you – so read on and find out more.
· Talk to your fiancé first. Don’t just go and talk to your parents before you discuss this issue with your fiancé. Sit down, do your math, and see how much money you need and how much your parents can help.
· Start easy. Your parents want you to be really happy, but that doesn’t mean you should skip politeness. Ask them if they could help you with money for the big day, but do remember to mention you don’t need a loan (after all, you don’t want to start your marriage in debt – right?).
· Set the ground rules. When borrowing money from the parents, they might want to have a larger involvement in your wedding. If you don’t necessarily want them to invite lots of people and dictate the rules of your big day, it is very important to set things clear from the very beginning. It may feel awkward, but it’s something that has to be done.
· Keep your eyes on the budget. If you want to avoid asking for too much money from your parents, discuss with your fiancé and set a very clear budget for every wedding element. See which are the things that mean a lot to you and which are the things that can be budgeted – it will definitely keep you out of financial trouble.
