Does he know you are getting married yet? If not, just tell him. He may offer right off the bat to help. I told my parents I was getting married not expecting anything from them. They didn’t say anything about it right then, so I assumed I was on my own. A few days later my mom called me and said, we’d like to offer you X amount of money towards your wedding. So I would just wait. If it appears that he is not going to offer at all, I guess you could broach the subject with him. I’m not really sure how though- I hate asking for money more than anything. But wait a few days after telling him to ask, and he may offer on his own.

Ick…this is a tough one.  I’d be inclined to talk about the wedding with him and see if he offers.  Asking for money when he isn’t able or willing to financially contribute could make for an awkward conversation.  I would just hold off on asking for a bit and see if he offers on his own.

I cant really give you any advice because I’m a firm believer in not asking. I’ve never know anyone to come right out and ask their parents for help with the wedding. My parents offered what they could (which is roughly half the total wedding cost) without having to be asked.

Does he know you’re getting married? If so, and he watned to offer up money, he would’ve. If not, he’ll keep quiet.
