Aww I’m sorry to hear you’re having trouble with the in-laws!  Like you, I am not best friends with FI’s family but luckily they live in another state.  His aunt gave us a present at xmas and said “I won’t be at your bridal shower so this is xmas and wedding”–but I haven’t even set a date for my bridal shower!  I understand your frustration with them, but really it is VERY generous of them to pay for all those people to come to your wedding.  It’s possible that at least some of the family members who they are paying for, wouldn’t have the financial means to come to your wedding otherwise, so really they are paying so that your FI can have a lot of his family there to celebrate with you guys.

My in-laws are not contributing at all to the wedding, though FMIL initially promised to help out (I ranted about this already in another post lol).  I think you should try to look on the bright side–all these people from FI’s family are coming across the country to be there with you guys, and his parents are generous enough to make that possible.  But seriously, rant away.  I know FI hates hearing me rant about his family so WB is a good place to do it!

Ugh. Sorry you’re going through this 🙁
I would be so tempted to say “Oh goodness. I see that this is a huge burden for you since you’ve mentioned it so often. Perhaps you shouldn’t come.”
