futuremrstx:  Wow. I’m so sorry you had to put up with that. Why would she express interest in joining you if she was just gonna be rude? Did you fiance think you were at fault or does he know his mom was the problem?

You were right to kick her out. Her behavior was atrocious.

If that’s the way she acts, she should have as little to do with the planning of the wedding as possible. 

I’m sorry that happened.

futuremrstx:  your FI called her, is he taking your side? I hope he’s taking a stand and protecting you instead of playing “Switzerland”.

futuremrstx:  And your mama stood for that behavior?? That woman has balls to be so nasty to a girl in front of her mother.

coffeedrinker:  yeah….my mom would’ve definitely said something. 


And yes OP the real question here is not what to do about your FMIL, it’s what did your FI do?

futuremrstx:  I’m really sorry. Her behavior was unacceptable and it was right to kick her out. I’m hoping your FI chewed her out for her choices-did he? Also, I’m surprised your mom and MOH didn’t actually say anything to her when she was making such horrible comments. My mother would have torn my MIL apart if she had been saying things like that. 

What has led to such a rocky relationship with your FMIL?

That sounds awful! Fortunately I learned from other people’s horror stories and only took my mom and grandma, two people I knew would be 100% supportive of me. They were actually almost too supportive haha, they said I looked great in every dress which didn’t exactly help narrow down my options! I think you’ll have a much more positive experience when you go alone, or maybe think about inviting someone who you know is ultra-positive.

It’s also great that your FI is supportive! That can really make all the difference sometimes when dealing with these touchy issues.
