Maybe have her pay half on the cheapest wedding expense that you have left.or tell her that the cost of the rehearsal dinner is less than what it is do she won’t pay as much.My Fmil wants to contribute too,but considering that my fiance had to deposit money into her account last month,I told him to tell her that we appreciate the offer but we have it handled.We are just having a small wedding and reception that we can afford to pay for ourselves.You could also solicit her help with the wedding in another way,ask her to help with projects,gatherin g people for the photographer etc.

It sounds like she really wants to be involved. I agree with maybe telling her you’ll make the arrangments for the rehersal and it costs x amount, even if you guys end up paying for more. That way she’ll get to feel like she was helpful and involved. I’m sure its hard for her to want to help, without being in a financial position to do so.

Maybe she is saving up? But do offer her out if you think she can’t afford it.
