This is a tough one because I can see how this would be frustrating for you, but at the same time it seems like your family is trying to feel involoved in the planning and might be feeling like they aren’t as included  as your FI’s family. I think if your sisters are willing to spend a little more for a dress then maybe it would be a fun thing that you could all do together. Maybe if there are things you and your mom could work on for your at home reception maybe she would feel a little better. I am sorry this has been so stressful for you.

ugh I’m sorry, I don’t know that I have the best advice for you because I’m going through similar situations and I don’t understand it. I have to just remember who they are (very loving people) and why they say the things they do (because they care)…and I think they mean well, but it feels like they are trying to control the wedding you (and I) are paying for and planning. Only time will tell, but I imagine that once they see my day come together the way I have envisioned it, it will all make sense to them and the little squabbles won’t matter. I hope the same for you too.
