My mom inheritated money a few years back, and gave both my sister and I allot of money towards our weddings. I feel that it is the respectful thing to do to list her as the hostess for our wedding. I want to. My problem is, that this will annoy my brothers as they were not given any money, I have 6 brothers (big european family!) and do not want to cause a rift. My mother said that they already know, and that this would not be an issue. I don’t know what to do!

I’m not sure what the problem is…you said they already know. Are they complaining to you?

I am confused too. It doesn’t really seem like it would cause a big issue. If I were in your position, I would focus on the fact that your mother is paying for the wedding. If someone has a problem with that then that’s their issue. You can expalain to your brother(s) (if they even say anything) that since she’s paying for it – she deserves some recognition. Tradition used to be that the bride’s parent’s paid for the wedding. Maybe bring that up to help ease any hard feelings.

It wouldn’t be you who’s causing anything; they may have a problem with her for paying, not with you for recognizing that she is.
