Let it go. Harboring resentment over a comment made sometime last year will never have a positive outcome.

Ignore her. She’s being mean. My MIL makes all sorts of comments about the fact that my family is paying for the wedding (“Oh, your family must have so much extra money.”) and I just chalk it up to her feeling insecure that she can’t help more.

I don’t understand why you would be discussing one families finances with the other. Neither needs to know how much the other is contributing. We were very careful to not tell either how much was given or even how much we paid for. That is just asking for resentment. Each family should give what they are comfortable with (even if that is nothing). 

Her comments however are out of line but I would just ignore them and change the subject. Money is always a touchy subject.

I live with my fiancé’s parents and she got mad at us for taking my mother out to eat for Mother’s Day AFTER asking her if she would like us to take her out to eat. She also makes it a point to point out everything FI does for me and say how she’s gonna miss him doing that for her when we’re married. She also comes into our room at all hours of the day and night when she “needs” things and criticizes my ironing, cooking and cleaning. I getcha! Oh how I long for the day we move out and I don’t have to see her everyday!
