I'm really careful about not discussing costs. I don't think it's anyone's business but my fiance's and mine. We are paying for almost the entire wedding so it's really not needed to discuss. My mom knows how much my dress is because she really wanted to help pay for it and my mother in law to be knows how much our welcome bags will be because she wants to purchase them for us. But that's the exceptions.I just have had a couple girlfriends grill me about plans. We have another set of friends marrying like 2 weeks after us so everyone is getting curious. The last big comment was that I shouldn't have a dessert table and do favors bags because "it's too much" and "I'm trying too hard" Those comments are tough because there's a reason why we are having a sweets table and I don't want to throw a dinky favor at people. Its not out of trying too hard. I just want to be an awesome host. I grew up in Chicago but my home life was very a traditional Southern belle upbringing so proper hosting is in my blood.
@CrazyCatLady3 We are doing favor bags with goodies made in Chicago. It'll be a bag of Garrett's popcorn, bottle of Goose Island Root Beer, box of 2 mini donuts from Glazed and Infused and then different small boxes of candy. Lemonheads, Junior Mints, Dots, Tootsie Rolls, and Mars bars (milky way, snickers, 3 musketeers, etc) We have a small Chicago theme to the wedding. Chicago has been so meaningful for us as a couple and as people. Our wedding invites are based on vintage Chicago tourist posters and all our tables are going to named for famous landmarks so we thought the favors were a fun and tasty way to round the "theme" out. Plus who doesn't love going home with a bag of treats?
