My family and mr honeybee's family has been really hit financially. MIL's buisness is not doing well due to the VAT and my mum received a court summons today becasue she hasn't been able to pay the council tax So I've paid it for her (had to force her to take the money) and I used some of my wedding budget to pay for it. It tipped me over the edge- how the hell can I expect my family to pay for this wedding when they can hardly afford to feed themselves? So I've stopped. I nearly postponed the wedding, but my Mum put her foot down. We've had to let 30 guests down and bring the list down to 50- which means it'll be an intimate immediate family and few friends only wedding. My family take up 30 as it is. Im so upset and feel so guilty to let them down. Ive told my parents to stop paying and put all the money thats been saved up together and see what we can do with it. We've found that we can do it for 50-55 people tops. Im so upset- but Im trying to think of my family.
