That is a bit weird! i have never asked that question to any friends that have gotten married. Not even my sister! It’s no ones business. Why do you think she is asking? Do you think she wants you to share it with her!

Ugh, my FIL did this, but it was because he didn’t want to look cheap. My parents paid for our wedding and he had the balls to ask DH how uch they gave us. He then asked my dad too, and my dad said, “We paid for everything.” FIL asked dad how much he should give them to help out and my dad siad just help us when buying a house.

FIL is always nosey about money. He wanted to know how much our house cost as well as water bill, garbage, electricity. I mean what is he going to do with that information? It isn’t his business, and it really isn’t your mom’s business to know about money unless she is paying for something either.

@Daizy914:  Its not her buisness plus yes its rude. There is a reason she wants to know and I would find out before hand she doesn’t question like that if its just curiousity

I’m waiting for a text from my mother after my shower/the wedding, asking for money. I plan on doing what I always do when I open cards with money: discreetly push the money to the side (so it’s hidden from view, still inside the card), read the card, put it back in the envelope, and thank the person.

@Daizy914:  I would just ignore it if possible tell her plainly its none of her buisness and change the subject if it doesn’t work repeat its not her buisness and say that you have things to do and hang up the phone

Is your Mom helping you financially for the wedding?  If she is, maybe she is going through hard times and doesn’t want to tell you? Makes me think she’s asking about the amount of money so she can gauge how much you’d be able to pay her back?
