@amryan86: Yikes! Im so sorry 🙁 My MIL was very difficult and controlling throughout our engagement. We ended up having a premartial session specifically about how to deal with her because it was driving us apart. The key was setting boundaries. My MIL wanted to take over the planning of our entire wedding. In the end many aspects of our wedding were planned by her (decorations) and I was very bothered by it but have since moved on since that didnt matter. Try talking to your FI to see if he can talk to her about what is going on. Good luck! The good news is now that the wedding is over my MIL is back to normal!

@amryan86:I suggest that you become “really busy” and unable to return her phone calls to listen to her complain. I would try to avoid her, you really don’t want to make things uncomfortable with him and his parents.

I am so sorry to hear about all of that. I think it’s aweful that you have to endure all of that, especially since this is supposed to be a fun time for you, and the most important day of your life. Have you talked to your parents about the situation? If so, what do they think? If I were you, I would have them step in and tell her to back off. I agree with Soladylike, I would just lay low, and stay away and don’t tell her about anything that you are doing.
