Oh sweety I’m sorry 🙁 If I were you, I would go over to their house and sit down and talk with him first, explain how you feel and then talk with your mother. Probably however he just wants to make your mother happy! You are her daughter, and from what I gathered the only daughter/eldest, it is exciting for your mom and she wants to help you have the wedding of your dreams and he wants to make her hapoy, like every husband should! Now if it were something personal like walking you down the aisle or building your altar then that is another story, but I’m sure they would not have offered the money if they didn’t think it was ok!

Now, you dont have to hate wedding planning, (but I completely get it, I’m not even oficially planning, still a waiting bee but I did tell my closestfriends what was going on and everyone seems to think that they know best) if you’re a people pleaser that is fine, but you just have to realize which people are worth pleasing (mainly you, your soon to be husband and your mom) And if you aren’t and are just tired of wedding talk whenever someone asks you coukd just say something like well it’s a surprise! Or I really don’t feel like talking about it right now…. 

It is supposed to be a happy day, don’t let it bring you down!!!

OK, take a deep breath. In the grand scheme of things, this is not a bad problem to have 🙂

I would consider it a gift from your mother with her husband’s blessing. Of course she needed to consult her husband about how much they could give you.  Whether or not she contributes financially to their household really doesn’t matter, they are married so it’s her money too.

I understand that you have no real relationship with him, but apparently he respects you and loves your mother and wants her to be happy by contributing to your wedding.

I also hate wedding planning! Actually a lot of people find it to be a serious hassle, so don’t feel bad.

I think it’s awfully sweet of your mother and her husband to offer to be so generous. Why exactly are you so hesitant to accept the gift?
