I really just need to vent. FI and I planned on having a very small wedding, just immediate family and our very close friends, less than 25 people. My mother offered to pay 1/3 of the wedding cost if we would include more extended family. She said she would like for the whole family to be a part of the day and understood that financially we could not do that on our own so she would pay for it and we wouldn't have to worry about so much of the cost. We really appreciated her doing that for us, I offered to pay her back and she said no many times. Now that STD's have gone out and my mother is recently (2 weeks ago) remarried, her new husband is telling her that she needs to ask for the money back and not pay for anything or else FI and I won't learn anything. I know her new husband's daughter is getting married the week after us, and he is footing the bill for a 400 person wedding. I understand that it is his money and his choice to do what he wants with it. But why is he telling my mother that she can no longer help us? I never asked for a dime, she offered as long as we invited the extended family.
Anyways, thank you for listening to my vent, I appreciate it. I feel better after getting that off my chest.
