- Wedding: January 2014
So, we were fully prepared to pay for the whole wedding ourselves. Our wedding is going to be around $7,000 – we didn’t want anything super elaborate. We are doing most everything ourselves and it’s mostly just family. FMIL gave us $3,000 to help with expenses which we really appreciated. Well, this week she told us that she wants to pay for the whole reception – which will cost about what she already gave us. We told her that we were fine and she already gave more than enough, but she is insisting on paying for something else big. FI has told her no, but she is very persistent lol. Any suggestions on making it clear? I’m also wondering what type of gift I should get her for helping us out?
