Alright ladies this is the situation I have before me,
My to be mother and father in law are not paying for any of the wedding because they don't think it is their responsibility. However, the only thing they are paying for is the rehearsal dinner, and they insist on having it at a fancy/expensive place. My parents have decided to put 7k into my wedding and that covers the venue and food.
Everything else is on us. I wouldn't mind not having a rehearsal dinner if they put that money towards the wedding, but they insist on having one. Also, we aren't having alcohol at the wedding because we don't have the funds.
So, here are the two options that my to-be parents have given me,
1. They will pay for the rehearsal dinner, and all out of town guests can come (from both of our sides).
2. They will pay for the rehearsal dinner for the bridal party, my grandparents, and JUST their out of town guests, but they will help pay for alcohol.
Any thoughts on the predicament?
