OMG! My mom just offered to pay for our whole wedding!

I am still in shock. My mom offered to pay for our whole wedding and she gave me a budget of $10K - $15K which is so beyond generous. I never saw this coming especially since she never brought it up before. She said that she was just trying to figure out exactly how much she would be able to give us for the wedding. I'm an only child and was raised by just my mom and my grandparents helped her a lot. She always worked really hard and gave me everything that she could. She put herself through college and has always worked atleast two jobs since I can remember. We were at breakfast and she dropped this bomb on us!


I kept saying no but she said that she won't take no for an answer. She doesn't want us to have the simple wedding that we were fine with having. She said that she is going to give me the special beautiful wedding that I deserve to have. I still can't get over this!

WOW that is so wonderful, I think I would've jumped across the table to hug my mom so tight had she said that. Well not my mom I would've asked her to produce a check right then because she spends money in a matter of seconds lol.

Congrats!! I know that takes a huge amount of stress off of you

allbyfaith- That cracked me up! :) My mom is the exact opposite when it comes to money.


I do really need to come up with something amazing to do for my mom. It was not easy to be a single parent and she always put me first and gave me everything that she could.

Beautiful, the love of a mother, always wanting to provide for their children. Peace and blessings, the fact that she could is a blessing in itself.
