I am new and am looking forward to planning my wedding! My fiance and I are planning our wedding for April 2015 and just started the process.
My dad called last night and said that he wants to get together and "talk money" for the wedding. He and my mom paid for my sister's wedding. I think they spent about 40k on her wedding. He said that he wants me to think about a budget that would be resonable considering the type of wedding I want.
My question is, is it fair for me to assume that I will recieve 40k as well? Is this a good budget for a wedding? My best friend got married last year and they spent 60k on the wedding. I just don't think that I could plan the wedding of my dreams for less than 30k. Should I tell my dad 30k? Or should I give us wiggle room and ask for 40k?
