The Wedding Dress]
Avalon told me today that when she gets married she’s going to wear my wedding dress (let’s just get through primary school sweetie!) And while I was getting all misty eyed & nostalgic she turned around & said...”that way you only have to buy my shoes & the veil thingy...plus everything else. The parents pay you know?” #HoldUp What? I knew when I became pregnant I’d have to pay for my children’s food, education & entertainment...but a wedding had kind of slipped my mind. Is that even still a thing? #WhatYearIsIt Are parents with daughters still paying for their weddings? I mean...in case you hadn’t noticed, weddings are big business, & cost about the same as an island in Fiji. Should I be saving for this? 💵💰💳
In this day & age, when we are raising our daughters to be strong independent women...are parents still expected to pay for their wedding??
