I think it is awesome that FI is telling his Mom not to call you about this stuff and talk to your Mom instead!!!

This is how a SO should respond when this stuff arises, I know your FMIL might be driving you crazy, but it looks like you picked an awesome partner!  Congrats on that!

wow. crazy, but despite that it just seems like she is caught up in the frazzle of the wedding planning, and she wasnt going out of her way to intentionally hurt you….and im happy to hear that you have a good relationship with her, that is important! 

But yea, i flipped over my STD’s and having to hash out the guestlist THEN with extra people popping up left and right…i can only imagine having to deal with a last second issue of 3 uninvited guests!!!!

Good luck, May 1 is almost here!!! 🙂 yay!

I’d imagine she just wants everyone to be there because it’s a special thing with her son getting married…however that doesn’t make what she did okay.

I’d just say she probably got excited and just isn’t thinking about how stressful it makes things for you. Some people get a little crazy around weddings and I’m sure she’ll calm down afterwards – especially since you two seem to get along normally. And I totally get why you’d be stressed (I’m stressing about our guest list already) but I think the main thing is to be sure not to say anything you regret.

But I think having your FI deal with her is the best thing. That way you don’t have to worry about upsetting her AND you don’t have to worry about addtional guests.

Best of luck – and congrats! You’re in the home stretch!
