It’s really sweet of you to be thinking about them! = ) I’ve never been in such a situation, or known anyone in one.

Can you rent them a nice room for the night of their wedding before they go to Ocean City? You could set it up for them before they got there with flowers and candles or something?

I like His Barista’s idea of making the honeymoon nicer.  Maybe contact their hotel in Ocean City and get an upgrade?  See if the hotel will decorate?  Pay for something special during the honeymoon– nice dinner, special activity?  I don’t know the area, but maybe a romantic gondola ride or tour of the area.  A surprise baby shower would also be a very cool and practical approach, something they might really appreciate considering their financial situation.

It’s really kind of you to look for ways to help. I agree with the posters above. It would be a great surprise for them to arrive at their honeymoon and realize that something special and unexpected has been arranged for them.

Another idea is to find out what it is they’ll be missing the most by having “the wedding they can afford, not the one they want.” If they’re downgrading on decor, maybe you could organize a DIY day with the bride (so many great ideas on this site). If it’s a service, like hiring a DJ or hair stylist or photographer, maybe you and your Fiance could help them source “friendors” at reduced rates or free of charge.

I also like the baby shower idea.
