 I think your FI should deal with it.  It’s his mother, right?

Oh I see…. your FMIL and her entire clan are NOT coming to the wedding, but they are coming to the rehearsal dinner?

If that is the case, yes, I think you should just ask FFIL to contact her about the number of people she brings since he is paying for it.

Sounds really annoying, sorry you have to deal with this!

if she is bringing 10 extra people that you did not invite, she has to pay for them.  end of story.

Is it for the wedding or for the rehearsal dinner (the 10 people)?  If for the wedding, are they the mother and aunts/uncles, maybe those people should be at the wedding, regardless of who was willing to front what money..??

If it is for the rehearsal dinner, then I see a little more conflict… the rehearsal dinner often times is limited to those actually playing a part in the wedding (and sig others, if you please) and parents of the bride and groom.  If you state that and limit it to that, I don’t see what the problem would be… 

I know that divorced parents can be tricky (my mom didn’t go to my brother’s rehearsal dinner since my dad’s second wife had planned it), and I personally was sad that she wasn’t there…but kind of understood that it would have been pretty uncomfortable for my mom since my dad’s second wife was totally running the show.  Luckily for me, my dad and second wife have since parted ways and now both parents will attend rehearsal dinner, one big happy family, right?! 😉  Ok, I have kind of hijacked the conversation here, sorry!
