Tough call….

The assistance we got from either side was very different.  We ended up taking both sets of parents out for a nice dinner.  Our families are very compatible so this worked well and everyone is too easy going to have it be an issue.

But at the same time, if your future mother-in-law hasn’t helped at all (monetarily or otherwise) then why would you get her something?

We bought my mom a nicer gift and none of our parents are helping with the wedding. We just decided that since we are closer to my mom than his, she should get a nicer gift (his idea not mine) So I don’t think there is anything wrong with it.

Does your MIL have to know about your mom’s prospective “nicer” gift? Either way, I don’t see a problems with it.
