Planning a wedding is stressful. I've found it especially stressful when dealing with the future in-laws. Not to say they aren't perfectly lovely people, it's just more difficult for me to be frank with them, compared to my own family. So, I have found it best to let Darling Fiance deal directly with his parents. He can then relay the information to me and I can then fill my parents in on whatever is going on. This may seem like a few unnecessary steps, however, it is not. Darling Fiance knows his parents and how they best communicate. In turn, I know my parents and their preferred communication style. So, it's easiest if he deals with his family, I deal with mine, and we communicate with each other in between. It has since saved me many awkward-feeling moments.
