You’re in a tough situation since your future in laws are paying for everything.  My parents are not helping us financially with our wedding, so it was a little easier to say no to most of their requests.  In fact, one of them was that they insisted we get married at an Asian restaurant.  I think they just want to what all their friends children have done it the past.

I know you posted this two months ago, so hopefully you have some resolution to your  problem.  I’d be interested in learning what happened!

Its tradition that the groom or his family pays for the wedding reception. So I advise you to follow along with your future inlaws. Most Asian prefer Asian style wedding reception because its family style. I think its better than American style reception in my opinion, ps. Asians think that American buffet style is very tacky.

@pandaboo:  I would let your Fiance talk to his mom since it is his mom.
