Something significant here may depend on cultural customs and practices. For instance, in most cultures, if your youngsters were to be part of the bridal party and if they were expected to wear special outfits, it would be usual for the costs of these to be carried by the wedding ( in this case hikm and his parents who were bearing the other costs ), not you.
And its simple courtesy if ANYONE, especially the bride's mother, is coming a long way to attend the wedding, to make some reasonable arrangements for her and her children to slep, eat, etc.
The actual over-all costs of the wedding should not have been any surprise to him, as they presumably planned it and costed it together.
Goodness knows what's going on there, or why your daughter is being so unhelpful about this ; one wonders whether this her second marriage is likely to last, if this is how they cause and handle problems.
But try not to let this hurt you. Leave it up to her to take time to recognize what happened, and to approach you.
