Oh my god that is awful. You know, I clicked on this post because my Future Mother-In-Law is driving me crazy.. but in a completely different way. My Future Mother-In-Law is refusing to do anything. She acts like she wants nothing to do with our wedding, which makes me worried if she doesn’t like me.. but I think she does.

But your Future Mother-In-Law sounds like a complete terror. It sounds like she is trying so hard to compete with you which is just jealousy….attention seeking. I really don’t think you can say anything to her… if she was a little more mellow, maybe a simple, “{her name}, please let me make this decision. It is our wedding.” You know best if that would work.

I feel for you… stay positive and confident!! And keep the communication open with your Fiance about this.. that is great that y’all can discuss his mother so openly!!!

This is going to sound awful of me, but if your FH is onboard, can you just start excluding her from wedding stuff? Not take her anymore and not mention any of it in front of her, or if she asks just give really vague answers. Either way what you are going through totally sucks, but just not including her may alleviate some of your stress. It’s what I do with FIs mom, since she has an opinion on everything, and it usually starts with a “Well, THAT’s (tacky, against etiquette, not the way I would do it)”
