@excited8164:  “If you don’t have the money STFU! and stop volunteering for shiz.  Tell me “I don’t have it sorry” and the world would be a better EffiN place!….” 

^THIS!

I am dealing with the same thing with Fiance dad. Except most of the time he just ignores our phone calls.  Which I am sure at this point you’d rather deal with that. It’s just annoying to have him talk about sending a check and everything and being all into helping when he talks to us on the phone, then we dont hear from him for weeks and weeks.  I would SO rather he just says “I don’t have the money like I thought I would” because its OKAY. I of all people understand sometimes you have money problems.  I will understand!

@excited8164: I’m a little confused at what is going on.

So your Future Mother-In-Law made your arrangements?

And she wants to throw you a bridal shower? (although the timing isn’t great)

And they keep promising you money but not giving it to you?

Sorry, just trying to understand what is going on.

@excited8164: From this point on, I’d just assume any money they promise you isn’t coming. That way if it does show up it is a nice surprise (rather than a disappointment that you were counting on).

As for the shower, it is a nice gesture, but I’d tell your Future Mother-In-Law that unfortunately you cannot make it that early and ask if she can have the shower in the early afternoon instead.
