“We’re going through this planning with the mentality that the cost will be 100% on us,” she added. “Together, we make decent-ish money, and we’re looking to do a low-cost wedding.”

Paul’s family might help out with the wedding costs. They are sweet, but the couple isn’t counting on them helping out. However, the situation with her parents was a little more complex.

Her father was the breadwinner in their family. He always bragged about being a millionaire and making big money on the stock market. However, he was very stingy with money.

Her father has a history of using money to control others. When she was in university, he told her that he would stop paying her college fees if she didn’t lose weight.

What’s more, when the woman was shopping for a home, her father threatened to buy the house she wanted and change the terms of the loan. In short, he’s a strange fish.

Though her father was very well-off at the time, he insisted that his wife’s family pay for the wedding because, in his words, “The bride’s family pays for the wedding.”

One poster wrote, “Is catching him in a ‘gotcha’ moment really worth the stress I can only imagine this will bring to your wedding?”

While another commenter declared, “I’m petty; I would demand it. It might be good to do it with your maternal family present too—anyone who put money into your parents’ wedding if they’re still alive. Heck, I would do it by Zoom if they didn’t live near.”
