wwyd??

I am in a "high society" wedding in May. The girl I am friends with is not high society but her mom is.

Well her mom is paying for 2 nights in a hotel for T and I and for me to get my hair and makeup done. I called the girls mom and told her you know i were more than happy to take care of that but she insisted. i feel bad that she is paying for all that. even though i know the mom would wipe her butt with her money.

should i get the mom a nice card or something?

Who let the dawgs out? image

  • After the wedding I would probably send her a nice thank you note telling her how much you enjoyed your stay at the hotel and what a good job you felt they did with your hair and make up.

    This.  You could send them one of those edible flower fruit baskets after the wedding to enjoy (or get one for the day of when everyone is getting ready).

    I agree. I was in a wedding like this too (the mom even paid for our bridesmaids dresses) and I sent her a thank you card afterwards. She was very appreciative.

    This.  You certainly shouldn't feel bad or guilty for letting her pay for your hotel stay...just thank her for it afterwards.

  • definitely follow up with a thank you card!! that's so generous. i've been in weddings before like that and they honestly dont want anything in return - it's just their way of being generous but i would DEFINITELY give her a nice note of thanks afterwards. being very giving is part of many people's nature but it's always a nice to let them know you appreciate them!
