@Coral2013:  I’m sorry their being so horrid to you but I think if they’re paying for the wedding, their names should be on the invitations. However, I think your Darling Husband needs to sit them down and find out how committed they are to funding your wedding since payments are coming due.

ETA: The more I think about this, why even take money from his parents if they don’t even have the decency to treat you with respect? Why not hold off until you and your husband can foot the bill, and you would be free from this drama?

How terrible! I’m sorry his parents have treated you this way! I do think though that if you are allowing them to pay for the wedding, their names have to go on the invitation.

@Coral2013:  Again, I’m sorry that you’re having to deal with this especially since weddings are supposed to be about a time of joy. As a practicing Catholic, I understand where your husband is coming from in terms of wanting your union blessed by the Church. However, I think you should talk to your husband about the stress this is causing you by having his parents involved. Having a Catholic wedding doesn’t necessarily mean it has to break the bank. It is possible to find a Catholic church for a couple hundred dollars. You guys could also do a cake and punch reception to follow that is more budget friendly or even hold off for when you have funds if you want to do a more lavish reception. I can’t tell you what to do, but I don’t think any amount of money your in laws pony up justifies what you are being put through.

Why would you want a wedding paid by this people? just have whatever you can afford, even if it is cake and beer at your house

Bravo @coral2013! Sounds like your man really stepped up to the plate and stood up for you. Only too bad it didn’t happen earlier. I am sorry you were treated with such disrespect for so long. 

Here’s to a long and happy life together!
