Have you considered sitting down with her and asking her what’s up? Passive agressive people depend on others not calling them out on their bs.

Then you definitely need to talk to her about it in as non confrontational a way as possible. “I’m getting this vibe and I want to talk to you about it.” I did this with my Mother-In-Law and do it with other family members as necessary. Works pretty well.

I undestand why you want to play nice, believe me.  However, she obviously doesn’t play by the rules, and you need to call her out on it- ASAP.  Instead of writing the thank you note for attending, you should have written her a note more along the lines of “Thank you for attending, but your comment was very inappropriate and non-conducive to our wedding.  If you have something to say to me, please respect me and yourself enough to do it in private.” 

Do not negotiate with terrorists.
