Only the rehearsal dinner, but then for a wedding gift, they gave us a ridiculous (large) amount of money.

Future In-Laws have offered to pay for beer & wine (we’re just offering those as alcoholic options), as well as possibly helping with some of the catering costs. they are also paying to have our traditional outfits made for the ceremony they want us to have.

FI’s parents paid for the venue & wedding package, including the ceremony & reception locations, tables, chairs, arch, cake, champagn & food. It was very generous of them to do since they do not have alot of money either.

I am covering the wedding (my mom is also contributing a bit) and my Fiance is covering the honeymoon. My FI’s dad is paying the drinks and his mom is buying the flowers and she bought my veil as a special present to me 🙂 So everyone is helping out in some way
