I am so sorry you’re feeling so down!  I think, in your position, I would also be very hurt by FMIL’s attitude and lack of discretion.  Try not to let it get to you!  Try not to let someone intrude on your relationship… what really matters is what you and your fiance want.  And he is lucky that you are marrying him, too!

Parents can do this sometimes; her being critical isn’t necessarily her trying to take the wedding away from you, it’s her being practical. Mine were the same way. “18K on a wedding? but you could go to tahiti for a month!” Well, how we prioritize our money is our business. Gently reminding them so usually is effective. She’s sounds a little annoying, but honestly, what mother doesn’t brag up her son? Granted, it’s inappropriate to comment on how other women go crazy for him but when she does so, just say, “yeah, and i’m the lucky girl!” or something. When she says rude things like this, you need to gently stray her away from the topic. And if she doesn’t let up, tell her or have your FI tell her those comments are very inappropriate and you don’t appreciate them. I think it’s just her boosting her own ego about having such an amazing son. I know my parents can do this too: “my daughter is so awesome” blah blah blah, and it’s really obnoxious. Good luck and try not to let her get under your skin, otherwise she’ll always get to you. I hope you have a better day!
