I am a little confused here, so bear with me! My DH and I had discussed a wedding gift of $200 before the wedding for his younger sister. DH is in Iraq and won't be able to attend for one thing. We also felt bad because their Dad isn't able to help with money and their Mom won't. So SIL and her fiance are paying for the entire thing save a few things his family will pay for. I asked SIL and her fiance how they would feel about money to help get them married, instead of some thing after ward. They were both in agreement that it'd be more helpful that way. SIL has mentioned several times how much every thing is costing and how they can't get this or that until they get more money. I started looking at the links she sent me of the candles etc, and these things can be found much cheaper. Still, I kept my mouth shut because she hasn't asked for my help in budgeting. I knew that they were doing some sort of engagement announcement

No, we haven't given her the money yet. I told them that DH and I would discuss it, look at our budget, etc. I just have a hard time feeling sorry for them and wanting to help when they've spent $300 on an ad in a magazine! The place they want to get married at has a deposit that must be paid, and that $300 could have gone to that. NO, it's not my wedding, and I'm not going to stipulate what they can/can't spend the money on. I would feel pretty stupid if we gave them the money and she spent it on one inconsequential thing and still didn't have a dress or a tux or some thing big like that.
