@sara5ann:  My ILs also offered to host the rehearsal dinner, but they got to pick where it was and pick the menu.  We requested a certain location, and they just did what they wanted.  It kind of sucked, but hey, who am I to turn down a paid meal for 50 people!  I say just let it go.

Etiquette would be if she paid for the whole dinner – she is the host and may choose. However, buying in slightly doesn’t really give her that power. I guess it would depend on if she were actually paying for the whole dinner or not. If yes – then it is her choice (sorry). If you are primarily paying it is yours.

@FutureMrsHallam:  I didn’t say any meal – I said dinner. And no, I have never eaten dinner without a meat component. I’m far too fat to be living off salads 😛 

I agree she shouldn’t have asked for money but I still don’t think it’s up to someone’s Mother-In-Law to dictate food choices for a measy $400 contribution. OP has already resolved it though.
