We received a small amount of financial help from my now in-laws (they paid for all the champagne and helped with decor, my mother did the shower) but they gifted it to both of us. Neither my husband nor his parents considered it as just helping my husband pay for his portion. We were told they wanted to do this for both of us.

My husband would also have never asked me what my mom could pay and then basically pitch a fit and tell me to pay what I think I’m worth. That is a huge red flag.

Have you discussed finances after you’re married? Does he expect you to pay “for your share”? You need to have some tough discussions before you go through with this wedding.
