(page 2 of 2)

The Wedding Guru says: In three words, “just don’t pay!” The first thing you need to do is talk to your son. Tell him you think the reception went really well, it was your pleasure to provide your home — and that you were happy to pay for what you agreed to before the wedding. Explain that you did not promise to pay for anything beyond your pre-wedding agreement, and the post-ceremony bills are a burden. Then defer all bills to his address.
