FI's parents have generously offered to foot the bill for the RD. A couple months ago, they asked us if we had any idea of where we wanted the RD to be. We told them a place where we would love to have it. So, we all went out to dinner there since they had never been there, we met with the guy in charge of private parties, saw the party room, etc. They loved it & everything about it! I even went in a couple weeks later & reserved the room (no deposit necessary).
Now, they are saying that this place is over their budget. SMH. So, I decided to look into other options for them. Most places are around the same price as the one we already reserved. FI & I don't need anything fancy by any means, so I suggested having it at a local pizza place (they have a party room large enough to accommodate everyone who will be attending -- 45 people). This is way below the budget they gave us & I thought for sure they'd be okay with this. Well, now they don't want pizza.
Do I keep looking for other options as far as where to have it? Or should I just let them figure it out? The only reason I haven't let them plan it from the get-go is because they asked us where we would like to have it. FMIL suggested having it at their house. But, if it rains (our wedding is in May, so it's definitely possible) their house is not big enough to hold 45 people comfortably, & their house is 45 minutes away from the church where we're having the rehearsal & the hotel where our OOT guests are staying. I told FI I would rather not have it at their house for those reasons. But, should I just stay out of it completely & let them do it? I'm annoyed, frustrated, & stressing out because we're getting down to the wire. WWYD?
