- Wedding: June 2013
My parents are paying for the wedding and my future in-laws are supposed to be paying for the rehearsal dinner. We have been engaged since Feb 2012 and immediately they said they were paying.
Now we know they aren’t great with money. So we set an April 1 deadline for giving us $1500, knowing they wouldn’t be on time. It’s April 27th, and his mom told me this morning she has $300 for us.
Now it’s not required for them to pay but they keep insisting they are. But hello, it’s been over a year and you only have $300? Why would I expect you’ll have $1200 more in 2 months? I just know my fiancé is furious because they never helped him financially and he thought they’d step up this one time. I almost wish they’d said up front they’d try to do what they could but not make promises they couldn’t keep.
