((Hugs)) I’m sorry that you’re so frustrated and stressed out. Unfortunately, I don’t think there’s really anything that can be done at this point aside from having a sit-down talk with your mom about your feelings. Hopefully, your DH isn’t taking it out on you. Your post made it sound like he was transferring some of his disappointment onto you, and that’s not fair since you’re doing what you can. Is he helping you? Perhaps that can ease some of your burden. Good luck.

I’m confused.  Did your mother insist on this local reception?  

If you are hosting the local reception then she is doing you a favor in helping out.  Just as his parents did him a favor in helping him out with his soon to be inlaws when they were in his home country.  

The local reception is the secondary party.  No one is going to be as excited about it as the primary wedding.  It sounds like she feels she traveled for your wedding, and she saw you get married, and she’s happy for you but she’s pretty much done with your wedding.

You can only be disappointed in some one’s behavior if you had an expectation for that person’s behavior.  Just have the expectation that they will do nothing and you won’t be disappointed!  You’re probably worried about how your family will look to your FH and his family, but that is something you can’t control, only they can.
