In my opinion, she can shove it. She’s already got her way three times 😛 Try to just ignore her, she’s being a control freak.

On the first part, money rarely comes with no strings attached, especially from someone like her.  If its her money paying things, she’s going to want her say in it.  The only way around that is to pay for it yourself. 

As for the comment, I can understand how fustration can build up, but the comment was pretty snappy and probably could have been stated nicer.  Unless shes totally awful and your Fiance is willign to cut her out, sorry, but I think you need to play nice for his sake or things can get even worse.  Where was your Fiance during this conversation??  He should have stepped in and said something too if she was being mean and rude to you about your ideas.

I love the videos/slideshows at weddings! They are not tacky!! You apologized and that’s the end of it, if she can’t get over it, too bad. Your fiance avoids the conflicts by appeasing her (I might have too, if i had to live with that growing up!). I would have said, well my sister is paying for the slideshow and if she’s paying for it she gets to have it her way,right? *smile*  Totally passive/aggressive but she sounds like she’s a pain in the butt and that’s not gonna change. Maybe kill her with kindness when she’s a pain and then when you go home smash a couple oranges. Good luck!
