I'm VERY newly engaged and have just started getting into this whole budgeting nightmare. My dad has just called me up and stated he was surprised I haven't asked him to contribute and that he would like to. We're going to have a discussion on the weekend but I'm a bit stuck on how this conversation should go!
For some background: My dad seems to be pretty well off... Large home, plentiful vacations and I know he paid for the liquor and engagement party with his partner for her child last year.
Our venue we've picked is on the pricer side, so ideally I'd like him to help with the cost of that. I'm hoping to ask him what he's comfortable with.. but I was hoping to get other peoples thoughts and what the heck do I do if he asks me to give him a number!
