you give them a number.  have a ‘family meeting’ soon and go over the budget.  be ready with multiple estimates and pictures.  when you start giving them quotes, they’ll tell you they can get it cheaper.  then let her look for a place that will do it cheaper, armed with the pictures you give her.  when she cant find it for cheaper, she’ll feel bad and be open to alternatives.  in the meantime, tell you Fiance that you think he should tell his parents to contribute a specific amount rather than paying for x.  This way, they wont have to feel like theyre cheap and you wont have to compromise on what you want.
