This is old but I just don’t want any Bees to be confused. Promises are not legally binding and someone offering to pay for your wedding out of the goodness of their heart is a promise, not a contract. If you are out of money because you relied on their promise you can sue for the money you’re out of but that’s still not a guarantee of winning.

So many people repeat what they read so I just didn’t want bad information being passed around. Hugs.

@cerenatee:  seconded. verbal contracts can be binding, but there needs to be consideration for both parties. in this case mom wasn’t getting anything tangible, but daughter was getting 10k. wouldn’t hold up. if it was verbal that she’d give 10k in exchange for daughter’s car, then she’d have a shot.

@DawnaN:  i say that you forget your moms offer–in the end you wouldnt have heard the end of the money she gave you.

I agree. 

Just forget that she even offered.  I hope that the rest of planning goes better!!!

wow, that was awful of her to offer you the money. I wouldn’t concede to any of her demands, if only out of spite, and how dare she comment on your inability to save?
