How very sweet of you!

Since it sounds like a separate event won’t work out, is there anything special/over the top you can contribute toward the wedding?  Like a great band that they might not otherwise hire?  Or maybe you could offer to buy them a framed enlargement from their photographer?  Those can get pretty pricey (I have no idea if that’s a lot more or a lot less than what you’re planning to spend).  Basically, anything that you think they might want to do for their wedding but not otherwise be able to splurge on.

Alternatively, you could plan something nice for them afterward.  Either a post-wedding cocktail party…or contribute toward a nice weekend getaway (like a B&B plus dinner gift certificate). But having a small party afterward might be nice…esp. b/c it sounds like you’re close tot he groom’s family but don’t know his fiancee that well.  this would allow her to get to know what sounds like a very caring "adopted extended family".
