Ok so our wedding is over a year away, We both know that we do want to get something special for our Bridesmaids and Groomsmen, but do we have to have special little trinkets for all our guests? I think its a little ridiculous how the "wedding" has become so surperficail and all about the guests having a good time. I don't want to do it but feel like I have to. Also my father in law to be, used to make quite a bit of money in his job. Through the recession, his wages have been cut almost half and now can not help us with the wedding that he said he would. It is now all on us and my recently widowed mom. My fiance and I have started a savings account and put 2010 and will put next years tax return into it to pay for everything.
I guess what im asking is What are other ppl doing for favors or are you at all? and is there any way that we could go about asking my father in law to help out?
