OMG! I know exactly how you feel! The same situation happened to my sister at her wedding, and much more. Her Father-In-Law started to move my relatives (who were already seated) to the tables in the back because he felt entitled to have the first half of the tables reserved for the groom’s side. UGH! In the end, we just let it go because we new we were the bigger persons. THANK GOODNESS the wedding is over, and now we dont need to deal with them.

In the end, everything will work out. Maybe you can try talking to her yourself?

Is it possible to try to bring up the topic with her during a family get together and then very politely mention that your mom has requested no gifts- or have a similar converstation with other family members.

Or maybe you can plan a family get together with a few of FI’s family members outside his immediate family (like an aunt or uncle) and send an invite with the wording… 

Since my mother has requested to forgo the traditional gift giving, we would like to invite you to our house for tea/party/brunch to get to know you better.

I like lefeymw’s suggestion of the wording of the invite for a family get together.

This isn’t about your Future Mother-In-Law, this is about your fiance. Where was he when she was being hurtful during your relationship? Did he say anything? Did he stop the behavior? Judging by your FMIL’s current outburst and saying he’s a “Mamma’s boy” I’m guessing he wussed out. I can’t tell you what to do, but i’ve gone through this and I know your Mother-In-Law is probably never going to listen to you. She will listen to her son when he mans up. Your problem should no longer be with her, it should be with him. Each time he allows his mother to disrespect you and your family he’s disrespecting you.
