@dreamer1288:  All I can say is she is probably jealous and getting a talking to from your father about the cost. It is probably a mix of regret and trying to pass the buck onto you. Just hang in there – just under a month until you don’t need to deal with that!

@dreamer1288:  Your stepmom invited almost 200 people to your wedding? that seems really odd.

@dreamer1288:  Huh! I would elope and let her host all those guests on her own dime πŸ˜‰

@dreamer1288:  I really dont understand why you let this happen. Why not just plan a wedding that you and your fiance could afford so that you could keep the guest list to your friends/family only? Allowing 1 person to invite 200 people to a wedding is honestly just asking for trouble.

@dreamer1288:  People like her give a bad name to step-parents. It is too bad that you are so close to the wedding. I think I would have put a nix to her involvement when she started inviting that many people. I think that my mom asked for 3-5 people to be invited — and they are people I would have invited anyway. FI’s parents have about 3 people and same story, he knows them, it was just making sure they were invited. 

Easier said than done, but if it were me, I would divide the bills out into ‘her’ guests and your guests and hand her her portion of the bill ever so sweetly.

I have to be honest…if she made it clear from the start that she was going to take over things, then you shouldn’t be surprised that she is doing exactly that. Sorry, but you knew what you were getting into with her, you said so youself.
