My future in-laws agreed to contribute $2,800 for the alcohol at our wedding. My mom is paying for most of the wedding, except for the officiant, DJ, favors, and hair/makeup, which I'm paying for myself. My FFIL claimed he sent a check in the mail to my mom but that it was intercepted and cashed at a local SunTrust. Sounds cynical, but my mom and I were both pretty skeptical since he has a history of being shady with money (withdrew my FH's scholarship money from a joint checking account back when he was in college). They agreed to send my mom another check to 'hold' until the funds become available. This was about three weeks ago, and we haven't heard a peep. My mom is starting to develop resentments toward FH's family and is now saying that if she doesn't get the money by the end of July, that we are going to cut down their guest list (FMIL had previously given me a fairly large list of people that included friends of the family and people living in other states). She thinks they have a lot of nerve to send us a list of people when they may not be contributing. I tend to agree - what do you guys think? I'm just upset that we're already starting out that relationship with a lot of tension and resentments.
