It is a gift for her to pay for the wedding. Treat it as a gift and not a right. What she has paid for others has nothing to do with you or how much she spends. If you want it to be a little later then pay for it yourself. It’s not like you have had to pay for much else.
I have to pay for every penny of my wedding. And every dollar counts. If $900 dollars doesn’t seem like too much to ask, then don’t ask at all and pay for it yourself.
If it is too much to pay for then don’t ask either. My wedding will end at 10pm, so all the bridesmaids, groomsmen, and people who want to still party are going to have a little get together at a bar to keep the goodtimes roling. Maybe this is a good idea for you and your friends.

is it rude to chuck a tanty because someone wont spend an extra $900 on you? yes it is. pay the $900 yourself and enjoy the extra 90mins of party time

Are you serious? Yes, it is incredibly rude, not to mention selfish. You should be feeling grateful and thanking her for all she has given you, not acting like children who always want more. You’re adults getting married, if you want the party to go longer pay the $900 yourself.

I also would not like to pay for $10 PER MINUTE! That’s ludicrous. I would politely say thank you to Mother-In-Law and get her a lovely gift for all her trouble. What a nice woman!
