Shes going to help pay for the wedding. Obviously this will help us hugely as we are paying imigration fees and for the 8 hour drive/ international move…
Is there anyone Fiance can ask his mom? or do we just wait and see?

Depends on your FI’s relationship with his mom, and how open the hints have been. We are waiting to see if FI’s dad will offer, but if you are close, it wouldn’t hurt to ask. (FI is not so close to his dad.) Just try to ask in an open way that doesn’t appear to expect anything!

Urgh immigration fees I know how that feels!! Money grab for sure!!
If your Fi is really close with him Mum then maybe he could have a chat with her. Like pp said just be open and make sure they know you are not expecting anything.

Is the “hint” promising? I mean, if she told your fiance, “I can help you with that”. There’s no reason he can’t say “great, mom, thanks! The deposit is due at such and such a time”.
Or is the hint very vague?
