She probably was caught off guard and upset it was not what she wanted. When she said she may  not be able to go, she was probably looking for a reaction. I doubt she will really not end up going. I dont know her, but that would be crazy!

My MIL is batshit crazy.  She’s a sweet woman, but she is seriously mentally unstable. She tells me all the time that she never wanted to get married, and never have kids…Yet she is married to my FIL and she gave birth to MY HUSBAND!

She’s just weird.  She and FIL don’t get along and fight in front of people and it makes us uncomfortable.  Last time I saw her, the last thing she said to me (after a spat with FIL) was “if it weren’t too late, I’d tell you not to get married.”  WTF!!

You are NOT alone in the land of (F)MIL drama.  The best part of being married is you don’t have to suck up to them anymore.  You just have to tolerate them.

Don’t listen to her.  You’ll have a fabulous Vegas wedding, and she can’t stop you!

Well, I’m just coming on here to say there is hope. My FMIL at one time was public enemy #1. She made my and FI’s life miserable for quite some time. Now, 2 yrs later, she is an ally and friend. Yes, she is still a little whacky, but she supports us and loves us. She no longer causes unnecessary drama and has done a total 180 degree turnaround. I hope it’s the same for you. I neer backed down or let her take control. She just saw that we were in love and we are adults and somehow came to accept us and our decisions. Stick to your guns and she will come around.

My FIL didn’t come to our destination wedding because he didn’t want to fly and is a homebody too.  Although we were disappointed, it didn’t bother me personally as long as it didn’t bother DH.

My MIL is tolerable but she has her moments that I can’t stand.  But it’s true, once you’re married, you don’t have to care if they don’t like you anymore.

@QueenBecca: LOL!  “the best part of being married is that you don’t have to suck up to them anymore…” That seriously cracked me up. 🙂

Yup. My FSIL couldn’t come; FI and her discussed and it was all fine. My FMIL took me by surprise one day while no one else was in the room, telling me that FI can’t get married without his sister there. I mean, what am I supposed to say? We took this decision together and FSIL is fine with it?? !
