I have seen a few posts on here in the past of how parents promised to pay for half or to write a check and never did and it got tense between families. Well FMIL promised us a check, which mostly covers alcohol but it covers a few other small things too and we would definitely need to cut the guest list significantly to provide for our guests if she wasn't giving us that check.
Well FSIL just got into an extra expensive med school and now I'm kind of worried they will be like "never mind we have to pay for her school so you don't get a check" because it's been so long since they mentioned it.
Is there a good time or a good way to ask for that promised check from them? We didn't ask for the money, they were the ones who said they were giving us money but it was like 4 or 5 months ago that they said how much they were giving and I feel weird bringing it up, but also don't want to get to a month away from our wedding and find out the money isn't there either.
