Should The Parents Of The Bride Contact The Groom’s Parents After They Get Engaged?

Our son is getting married. He has been engaged for over a year. We live over 700 miles from him , his fiance and her parents. WE have no idea what has gone on up to this point.
1. Her parents have yet to call us.
2. They have planned a Disney Wedding Destination Cruise.
3. They have sent out invitations to only a few aunts, uncles, and cousins on our side. (who…by the way can not make it)
4. We don’t know if there was or will be a shower.
5. Our son says he doesn’t care that no one can make it cause “this is just for us”!
6 The wedding is at the end of August
7. We found out that some of his very wild crazy friends will be on the cruise.
8. We are feeling very awkward about calling her parents.
9. They are having 2 ceremonies — 1 before they board the ship and another on Disney’s Private island on the last day of the cruise. However, we don’t know if there will be a dinner etc.
Was it our place to contact the bride’s parents? Shouldn’t they have included us in some of the plans? We are quite upset and don’t know how to handle this. We are not planning on attending the cruise. We are trying to get info on the pre cruise ceremony and attend that.
( This cruise will set us back over $3,000! Maybe $4,000 with plane flight. That doesn’t include the gift we would like to give our son. We are retired and just can’t afford this! We don’t want to hurt his feelings but times are tough. We would rather give them a nice gift instead of paying for the cruise. Also, we will feel really weird to meet her parents for the first time at that point.)

Should I Get A Suite With My Fiancee’s Parents On Our Wedding Cruise?

My soon to be wife is requesting we get a 2 bedroom suite with a common area for the cruise part of our wedding vacation (married on Disney’s private Island) with her parents. I think she’s nuts, what are your thoughts? The only thing is that they can help with the babysitting, but that doesn’t matter to me, we’ll figure it out.

My Mom Wants To Watch The Kids, But I Want My Fiance’s Parents To?

I am getting married in September. We’re marrying in Disney, so the week before we’re going to take our two kids there and have a family vacation. The night of our wedding, my fiance and I will spend the night alone in a hotel in Disney, then fly to the Bahamas for a week. (Don’t say that we’re bad parents for going away. We have never been away as a couple since my son was born)
Originally we were going to have my mom watch the kids while we went on the honeymoon. However very recently my mother was arrested for a bar fight and now I’m having second thoughts of having her watch the kids. Since my dad (my parents are divorced) is going on business two days after our wedding and can’t watch the kids, we asked my fiance’s parents to watch the kids and they said they would love to.
When I told my mom, she got very upset. She told me that she wouldn’t come to my wedding if she couldn’t watch the kids while we went away! I told her I just couldn’t trust her! But she’s still mad and now she’s saying she’ll go and take the kids from my fiance’s parents!
HELP! How do I make my mom realize I love her, but I just can’t trust her to watch the kids?
P.S: Sorry if this is in the wrong section.

As Parents Of The Bride And Groom How Much Will It Cost Us To Join Them On Their Disney Cruise Wedding?

Our son’s fiance has her heart set on a Disney Cruise wedding. They will be cruising to an island where the ceremony then will be held.Unfortunately as a couple they are not real big on communicating exactly what’s planned. We can’t seem to find any info online about how much it will cost the parents and other guests. Are guests included in the deal or is the amount the bride and groom pay just for themselves? We don’t really want to ask them outright just yet. I don’t want them to think we might not attend if it’s too costly. What other options are thereso that the guests could be present for the ceremony? Could the parents fly out for just the ceremony and return the next day? ( They will be honeymooning at Disney World on the way back!) Any info would greatly be appreciated.
