He will offer to help with what he is willing to help with.  I wouldn’t ask him for money.

I’d leave it alone, bc I’m stubborn like that and do not like it when people intentionally make me feel indebted to them for something that they offered to do without having been asked. Or have Fiance deal with it.

Ah, so he read that your friends were doing a dinner for your rehearsal.  Then after you wrote about it Future Father-In-Law said “Oh, I was going to pay for that” (like he did for FBIL).  So now he’ll use the money elsehwere (wedding or on himself?).

It’s usually best to not ask, then you don’t look odd and no one is put on the spot.

Maybe he’ll give it as a gift at your wedding.  🙂

I’d ask Fiance to speak to his father & see if he was planning on using the money to help with your weddng. It’s not your place to ask Future Father-In-Law about money, that’s up to your Fiance (IMHO)

@LammChop:  Phew!  That’s a relief and no awkward convo was needed!  YAY!

That’s great.  Whoohoo for getting financial ‘assistance’ from the ‘rents.  As long as he doesn’t keep reminding you it’s all good.

Well that worked out nicely! Hopefully he won’t bring it up much.
