@Pinksapphire:  Oh girl!  *hugs*  I don’t really have anything helpful to say, but I am sorry you are dealing with this. 

Also I don’t know if you’d be comfortable broaching the subject, but if I were you I’d gently remind Future Mother-In-Law and Future Father-In-Law about their promise.  Maybe talk to Future Father-In-Law since Future Mother-In-Law is being so icky?  Good luck hun!

I can’t help but notice that your fiance isn’t mentioned in this post at all.  Why can’t he get on his mother about not getting the addresses for you?  After all, it is HIS family.  Hopefully your fiance can help you with the little things, like addressing the STD’s. I’m your bridesmaids aren’t stepping up to help.  Like I said, I would encourage you to get some help from your future hubby.

I definately agree with amw511s, have your Fiance talk to HIS mother! So she told you that they would cover half your food costs, you booked the venue, and they back out so they can spend 5 grand on a beach house!? Im totally upset FOR you!! Im so sorry that you are dealing with this!! Where do you live? Ill gladly throw you a SLAMMING bachelorette party!!

@Pinksapphire:  Ugh, that sounds like such a crappy situation!  Maybe she needs a not-so-gentle reminder!  Talk to your fiance, and plot a plan of action to get her to “remember.”  Maybe do something like bake a pie and take it over (with your FI) and say “We just wanted to bring this by as a thank you for offering to pay half of the venue!  That is so wonderful of you, and we really couldn’t do this without you!”

@Pinksapphire: I dont think it would be rude for your Fiance to bring up their contribution since they have already offered. I mean, they can do whatever they want with their money, but if you booked a venue with the expectation that you were going to get financial assistance (she offered!) then I dont see a problem with it at all and I dont think it makes you look like you are grabbing for money!

Everything will turn out ok!! Promise! AND If she doesnt want to give you her addresses, then dont worry about her side STD’s! You’ve asked and asked and to no avail, so thats her issue if she complains!

@misschickpea: Agreed!  If you were aksing, it would be totally different, but she offered, so it is not at all rude 🙂
