First of all congrats on your engagement!

It sounds like your mom was on the same page as you until your new stepfather came in to town and now things have changed. Is it possible that he is the one making waves and saying it’s inconvenient for him and your mom is going along with it to make him happy?

No matter what the reasoning, do what you and your FI want, don’t give in to pressure from the families. Also DO NOT accept any money from her, just flat out turn it down, even if you need it because if she gives you money that means she expects power to make decisions and tell you what to do, so just don’t take any and then tell her it’s your wedding, she isn’t contributing and you’ll do what you and FI please.
