I think if anyone were to ask, it should be your Fiance. My husband basically talked to his mom just to find out if there was any particular part of the wedding she wanted to help with, and she said she really wanted to help us with flowers, so she covered that cost.

As it is traditional for the groom’s parents to host the rehearsal dinner, I think that’s a safe subject for him to raise with them. If he opens up the discussion, you may find that they want to help out but “just assumed he’d know”.

Next time you are all together, you could both ask. Maybe they could cover the cost of one thing or 2. My parents are very willing to help us out (they are paying for the dinner, bar and some of the decorations) which is more than I expected. My FI’s parents havent offered any help, but they are in a bad situation with money, so im not expecting them too.

I agree with PPs that it should be your Fiance asking.  They may want to help but not be sure how to bring it up, or they’re old fashioned and think it’s the bride’s family’s responsibility.  Either way, have him talk to his parents.

Have your Fiance talk to his parents, you can be there, but it might be easier to hear coming from his mouth.
