It’s going to be okay!!! Either way, it will be okay and your and FH day will be great!!!  If she doesn’t want to give the money, then she won’t.  If she does, then she will! 

Cash bars aren’t terrible, people will still have a great time!

It’s going to be OK – after all, she offered. It would have been very different if she had showed no previous interest in the wedding, but obviously, she wants to help. I wouldn’t stress about it if I were you.

It is going to be ok! She is probably so happy to help-since she offered in the first place! Did she say anything to make you feel guilty? Or you just feel bad for saying no and then changing your mind later? Either way I hope your guilt feeling goes away quickly!

@Cupcakegurl:  My daughter and son-in-law married last year and betrween his parents and us we were able to pay for their whole wedding.  They were both very appreciative.  It was something we had saved for and were happy to do.  If they had turned to us and insisted they wanted to pay for it themselves, needless to say I would have been very impressed.  Your Future Mother-In-Law wants to help out and it will bring her pleasure knowing she played a part in making her son’s and future daughter-in-law’s day so special.  It might be nice to thank her in a toast at the reception dinner.  After the honeymoon, take her out for a nice dinner as a thank you.  When the pics come back, give her a nice shot in a pretty frame and if you can, make a nice parent’s album for her.  A heartfelt thank you note is a must!
