Why are they upset? It is hard to give you advice because it is hard to gauge how serious the situation is. 

But as you said, bottom line, its your wedding day. If you can make it happen financially, I don’t see why they would be upset. Your wedding is well over a year away, so I would hope that if they’re upset about your venue decision they’ll get over it by the time the actual wedding day rolls around.

Why exactly are your mother and sister upset? They say “it’s not her place”, do they think it’s their place and feel left out, or do they think you should be paying for it all yourself? If it’s the first one, maybe offer them another way to be involved, like helping with DIY projects if you have them. If it’s the second, it’s just simply not their business what you and your brother and sister in law want to do! What is their relationship with your sister-in-law like, usually?

I’m also confused about what they are upset about? Isn’t it just a nice gesture for your brother and his wife to give you the venue you couldn’t afford?  Are they just jealous because they couldn’t offer the same contribution?
