Shortly after my proposal, my fiancé and I sat down with our parents and kindly asked if they would be able to make an financial contributions to our wedding. They all said yes and provided us with the amount they could contribute. My parents graciously gave us their portion within a month. Now, five months later my future in-laws haven’t spoken a word about when they plan on handing us their portion.
Our wedding budget is based on their help and I am not sure how much longer I should wait before mentioning it. It is starting to stress me out and my mother in-laws shopping habits are also escalating my frustration.
Any advice would greatly be appreciated.

I am in a similar situation, I would start planning on not having it and then just treating it as a bonus if you actually get it. I know this is hard if you have already commited to things, my SO is working overtime to make up the difference in our situation

Also, I think that if anyone does talk to them it should be your FI, his family, his terriroty.

Just have your fiance ask them again…let them know you have things that need to be paid for. They could be waiting until you ask! Unless you told them, they have no way of knowing that your parents already gave you money. Don’t stress out over something that might not be a problem.

Agreed! Have your FI ask… if they flake, then move forward without it.
