When people comment on the price of your wedding...
Re: When people comment on the price of your wedding...
I get a lot of "if its ok to ask how much are you paying for X?" I feel pressured to answer and then justify the expense as if, if I don't it will sound much worse or like I'm hiding a much bigger amount then they were imagining. I would not have called my wedding luxury until reading what some others have defined it as. (I thought/still think of myself as a budget bride) but I guess now I see why I keep getting the questions.
It's funny, I would NEVER have the balls to ask someone how much they're paying, but several people have already asked me flat out what our budget for the wedding is. These people aren't even close to us or would be invited. Just rude "friends of friends" or work friends. Honestly, I would never ask someone that. I just sort of ignore it. These same people ask how many carats my ring is. I also find that always startling and very rude. Who cares? The reality is that everyone is on a budget, the amounts are just different. In the end, who really gives a sh*t?
