Well it’s ultimately their decision how to spend money. You won’t win points with them there. I agree that his behavior is weird and demanding and unlike any I can imagine coming from a man. But this is your daughter’s new family now, so just try to hold your tongue until the wedding’s over.

I agree with the PPs is their decision about the money. HOWEVER him being rude with you when you’re the one doing the job is a big fat NO NO. Talk to your daughter about this, it is his wedding but you’re paying and organizing.

Tell them you might have to give them X amount of money and step out of the planning as this is creating conflict between you. They’ll be married for life you don’t want to start this relationship among arguments.

Hmm, I think I know where you’re coming from a little…

I had some friends who have been married for 2 years now and he was a groomzilla. He basically organized the whole wedding! The bride told me that she pretty much only chose her dress, shoes, jewellery etc, the maids dresses, and her flowers.

She loves her husband dearly, but he can be rather controlling and sulk if he doesn’t get his own way. She actually admitted sometimes during the wedding preparations it was just easier to let him choose than try and discuss it with him. He’s also terrible with money and doesn’t seem to flinch at the idea of spending money ‘just because.’

Now I actually someimtes worry about them and their financial situation. He’s constantly SPENDING and throwing things on credit. It’s such a worry! She’s saying ‘Omg we’re so broke, we can barely afford bills.’ and yet he’s out buying a new TV?!

As a mother, I would be terrified of my daughter being involved with someone who is so bad with money! And the idea that my child is getting married and spending thousands upon thousands on a wedding but haven’t got a house in sight frightens me.

Everyone has their own priorities and it is their decision to make. Your daughter is a grown woman and has to do this on her own with her husband to be. But I think I feel where you’re coming from. Smile And yes, he IS being rude by demanding things of you.
