If he’s not contributing financially to the wedding in any way, he doesn’t get a say. I know it’s tricky to be firm and polite with family sometimes, but I would remind him that your dad is paying for the wedding and you’re happy to consider his “advice” or input, but you, FI, and your dad will be making the final call as it’s your wedding and your FI’s wedding, and your dad is financing it.

@HourThyme:  Next time he annoys you, I would tacfully remind him you were not invited to his wedding and that frankly he should be thankful he is coming to yours. You respect his wedding wishes, he needs to do the same with his baby and attitude.

That poor, poor girl. He’s going to be a nightmare when she gets married.

Be sure to ignore/stand up to your uncle as much as possible. If you give in he might be just as awful to all you other cousins who are getting married.

@HourThyme:  Ignore, avoid, and ignore some more.  If his texts or calls bother you, screen them and delete them without reading them.  You only have to deal with it for a few more weeks.

How often do you see/talk to this uncle?  Does he make these comments in person?  On the phone?  You mentioned one text message— is that how most of this is made?  

How do you usually respond to these comments? Do you tell him it’s none of his business? Do you try to be polite?  Do you ignore them and smile and nod?

Why dont you just tell him that since he apparently dislikes so many people close to you, he should stay home?

I agree. Can you ask your dad to step in and deal with this whole thing? Tell your uncle you want to enjoy your wedding/the days leading up to it and cannot deal with hearing another comment from him again. I don’t think it’s rude at all to say something. I would have flipped out by now if I were you!
