I’m so sorry this is happening. I never ceases to amaze me how selfish people can be.

To avoid including your mother in law at all, I would just fork over some money for the shower yourself. Tell your bridesmaids you really don’t want money from Mother-In-Law, and ask them how much extra they need.

Its actually more frowned upon for a bride to contribute financially to her own shower than it is for a mother or Future Mother-In-Law to.  This is an event to shower the bride with gifts, after all.

You might want to just keep the peace and accept her contribution.  Put her AND your mom as contacts to RSVP – that way your FI’s female relatives who are invited don’t need to respond to someone they may not know as well.

It might be “frowned upon”, but it would allow her to keep from the annoyance of her mom in law. And who would know she contributed?

I’m not allowed to pay for anything at mine, and got yelled at for buying prizes for it (but they were cute and on sale), Bridesmaid or Best Man insisted on paying me for what I had bought.

But if I needed to and I were OP, in order to keep myself sane and avoid a repeat of her Baby shower. People shouldn’t be allowed to make her day difficult. This is probably the only time in her life when Future Mother-In-Law SHOULD be kept from ruining her day!
