A $50 million wedding gift has been deemed too much by a woman in her 50s, but she still wanted to have the fun.
A woman named Elizabeth from Ohio, who has never met her bride, told Politico she got the message from her mother.
She wanted to give the couple a big, lavish, two-day wedding.
The bride was planning a two-week stay in a luxury hotel and said she would be spending a lot of time with her family.
“She was excited and was really looking forward to it, but it was all about money,” Elizabeth said.
“And it was a huge amount of money.
The wedding was going to be a $2 million event.”
The woman didn’t want to go out on a limb and spend that much money.
But she did want to make sure she could spend some of it on her daughter.
“The wedding was planned as a two week vacation, and we were expecting a total of $250,000,” Elizabeth told Politico.
“So she wanted to get her daughter out of it and to make it a very expensive wedding.”
I told her that if we could just get $100,000, then we can get her out of there.
But we had to make some adjustments,” Elizabeth added.
Elizabeth’s mother was skeptical of the idea, but the woman’s mother eventually agreed to help.
The woman paid her $50 for the day-long stay at the luxurious Holiday Inn, but said she had no idea what she would spend her money on.
The next day, Elizabeth had another idea.
The family decided to pay for their daughter’s wedding and even arranged for the bride to buy a huge wardrobe and some jewelry.
But Elizabeth’s mother didn’t have any money for those items, so she told her daughter to pay up.
The $50 she gave the couple was enough to cover everything.”
Her mom said, ‘That’s a lot.
It’s not even going to buy you the clothes for the entire trip,'” Elizabeth told The Huffington Post.”
So she gave me her card, which I gave to my mother and I said, this is not going to help you.
You have to buy the clothes, and that was a big cost.
But it was worth it because I got a big amount of fun.
“Elizabeth’s mom had also paid for a $100 dress that Elizabeth wanted to wear, and it was also going to cost a lot more than the dress.
The wedding cost $1.4 million.
The woman’s mom said the wedding was worth $50.
Elizabeth’s mom took the money, and the bride bought her a dress.”
My mother said, that was my money,” she said.”
Elizabeth had hoped to pay off her mother’s debt by buying a second home for the couple and raising the money for the wedding itself.””
I was like, ‘Wow, I can’t believe that happened.'”
Elizabeth had hoped to pay off her mother’s debt by buying a second home for the couple and raising the money for the wedding itself.
“We didn’t think it was going, but we were thinking of buying a house,” Elizabeth explained.
“We had a lot going on in our lives and I just had to be there to support them.
It was a lot to do.”
After the wedding, Elizabeth took a day off to relax and take care of her daughter and the wedding guests.
But the couple’s expenses were still staggering.
The couple was planning to spend the next day at a ski resort, but Elizabeth said they didn’t get enough money for food.
“Our total bill was $4,000.
And we didn’t even have the food for a whole day,” Elizabeth recounted.
The day after the wedding ended, Elizabeth said she was going out shopping with her sister.
But her sister called to tell her the hotel had booked a room for the next night, and Elizabeth’s sister told her the room was too big.
“And I just remember my sister, my mom, crying, ‘What did you do?!'”
Elizabeth said, recalling the emotional exchange.
Elizabeth said the next few days were filled with stress.
She also found herself in debt to her mother, who had already paid off the wedding bill.
“Now I had my mom’s money, my mother’s house, and my mother was making me pay off that money for me,” Elizabeth lamented.
Elizabeth tried to talk to her daughter about the situation.
Elizabeth says her daughter agreed to let her pay the wedding expenses, but then she asked her to leave.
“But I didn’t leave,” Elizabeth remembered.
“She had a big heart.
And she wanted us to go on.
She said, I have to go, and she said, we have to work.”
Elizabeth said she thought the couple could still make a go of it with the money they had made, but when the next week rolled
