um no, id march up to the bank first thing in the morning and get your own account and put the money there. Id be pissed about that.
Second you should make her aware that the rehearsal dinner is either all of you or none of you, and you wont attend anything without Fiance by your side.

I don’t understand how you could even have a rehearsal dinner without the bride, that isn’t a wedding event that is just you and your mom having dinner.
Just say thanks but no thanks, throw your own dinner and be the bigger person and invite her along. Problem solved.

Holy shit. She stole half your life savings? I’d call her up and say
mom, in light of the fact that you have chosen to steal half of my life savings from me on top of trying to host a rehearsal dinner without asking, and then attempt to not invite my fiancé and her family I am done. You are not invited to the wedding and you are not in my life anymore. If at some point you decide to do the right thing and return my money and agree to behave with respect towards my fiancé and her family I will consider allowing you to attend our wedding and will consider allowing you to be a part of our lives going forward. Your choice.
Life is too short to have someone in your life like her. If she keeps your money? Just think of it as the cost of removing her from your life. But please don’t let someone who steals from you and act this way get away with no consequences.
