No of course you weren’t wrong at all. If she offered, then I think it wouldn’t have caused more issues to decline. Perhaps his Mom just wanted to do something. I would ask her about it.

That’s really weird. Did MIL give any reasons as to why? I don’t think you should have checked with MIL before accepting. Maybe your FI can talk to his aunt to see what’s up?

yeah that is really strange! maybe there is some unknown drama between said aunt and FMIL? sounds a little bit wierd to me. i would have totally accepted the offer -someone wants to throw you a party i dont know why you have to check in with your fiances mom for that one. or anything for that matter.

That’s wierd. If she wants to throw one, it would be rude to decline, especially now after you already said yes.

That is so sweet of your future aunt. My aunt offered and my mom was so happy so now they are doing it together. I don’t see why MIL would be upset. Could they maybe plan it together?

You should not have consulted with FMIL first.

I would as FI to ask his mom why she things aunt should not throw the shower. Maybe she is having financial troubles? If FI’s mom only doesnt think its proper, then its not her decision, but the aunts decision.

Sheesh. Anybody who wants to throw you a shower is free to do so. FMIL probably just thinks she’s been upstaged.
