I know it has to be different in today's situation but when our daughter was going through this we found that the safest and sanest thing to do was stand back out of the way and just sign the checks.;)

LOL yep the check signing has been done for months but sometimes I just can't help myself...open mouth insert foot LOL.

Amen! My daughter married about 22 years ago to a son of an ex vp from Exxon. Our guest list was for about 40 or so, theirs was over200. I knew right then that I was in over my head. The reception was at some fancy ass hotel and a flat rate for open bar. Afterwards a few of my group gathered in the bar for a night cap, not knowing that open bar had closed 10 minutes earlier. Bar tender brought me a tab for over $300. At least daughter was happy and we have 2 wonderful grandkids to show for it. 

Sorry Nut, I think we hj your project.

They did push their ceremony/ reception to July 2021 so that's good but they  still want to be married this year so they plan to have a small ceremony in August I'm like you know you can go to the court house and in 5 min be legally married right...yeah not the right thing to say!  I feel bad for them but my normally very intelligent and grounded daughter is so emotionally tied to this dang wedding its unbelievable. 

Were they supposed to have their ceremony during this pandemic and had to move it?

I apparently am marrying into the wrong family because we're the only ones writing checks.

Ooff that's rough for them. I can't imagine the amount of stress that must have put on them and disappointment.

Megan and I talked about it and if for what ever reason we found ourselves in that spot we'd just do the courthouse wedding and them probably a reception later.
