Can you not just directly ask his mother if she is purchasing a gift on behalf of her family?

As adults (and part of a couple), I would buy them your own gift, even if his mom purchases a group gift…

You and your SO get a card and put a gift in there. Your SO can sign his mom’s card and don’t make a big deal about it. When you get to the reception, just take your card out of your purse and put it in the basket. That way you are covered!

@mmr66:  Well, there’s no law that SO can’t sign 2 cards. If you’re that concerned, the two of you can go in on a gift together, or simply get them a card signed by both of you.  IF you don’t know the bride and groom at all, you probably don’t have to worry about either, but it’s sounds like you’d feel better to err on the side of caution, and it neve hurts to purchase a gift to congratulate the newly married couple and as thanks for hosting you.
