@rosiedee:  DH had no concept of how much wedding stuff costs. We had a total budget of $3000. He had soooooo many things on the list of things we should have or do. Whenever he would make a suggestion I would just say, “Ok, that’s fine. It will cost x amount. Are we ok with that?” Every single time, his answer was, “heck no!” Lol I would try doing this with your FI. Guys see things like this as “little” changes. They don’t realize what a difference they make.

I didn’t deal with any of that, my DH left everything up to me…but guys don’t really have a comprehension about how much stuff costs. When I brought up costs to my husband he was always like “that is SOOO expensive!” So I showed him all the estimates that were for like 4-5x more than what I had settled on and it really opened his eyes.

Maybe showing your FI cold, hard numbers will help.
