That’s great!! I’m sure they just want to hear about the wedding and what decisions you’ve made. Try to relax and enjoy your future family! I think you should wear the purple dress you wore in your engagement pics. It’s beautiful and classy and they’ll appreciate that you took the time to look nice for them

I see your point. After 3 years, suddenly an invite to dinner…? It is a little fishy but perhaps it is all in good taste now that you are officially engaged, etc. They seem like very loving and supportive people. That is wonderful!

It could be a tiny ploy to get you aside and see how they can contribute, in which case, you and your fiancé ought to be prepared with a solid response together as a couple. Perhaps to keep it simple, if they offer to contribute, have it be for a very specific thing like the photographer or florist. This way, if another side of the family wishes to help, you eliminate any sort of potential power struggle over who gave the most $$ toward the wedding in general and what percentage of “say” they have as a result.

Wear something simple and classy, and gentle and bright. Think Audrey Hepburn. Oh, and bring a small bouquet of flowers for your hostess and/or a small dessert to enjoy together. 🙂 Good luck!
