Let me just start with a little background: I'm 28. My boyfriend is 34. We'd like to get married sometime in the next two years or so. We've been together for 6.5-ish years now. My question is, and my boyfriend thought I should pose it here on Sugar, when are you too old to ask the father of the bride (my dad) to pay or help pay for the wedding?
I know it's seen as traditional, but I feel like I'm kind of old at this point to ask for help. We probably wouldn't get engaged for another year or so since we'd have to save up for a ring, and although the wedding that I want is pretty small I kind of feel 30-ish is old enough to pay for my own wedding, even if that means delaying it for another couple of years or so (recession = having trouble finding a job). Anyways, any thoughts are appreciated.
