We talked about that last night. I was like “My family is crazy, they will cut her if she makes a negative comment about me.” and “You have to seriously sit down with her and let her know that this is a HAPPY event and no drama will be involved.”
He kept agreeing and listened to my fears. Now he’s more concerned about where she would stay. I ADORE her ex husband and have assigned 1 of 8 master suites to him and there is no way he’d stay under the same roof with her. I don’t see the huge problem of her staying next door in a paid for condo with other family (including her other daughter).

I love your responses. Please write a wedding planning/therapy book. I will buy a million copies.

Please don’t cancel your beautiful wedding to elope! I saw your other thread and it looks like it’s going to be gorgeous. I have very strong feelings about letting bullies get their way… you can have your wedding no matter what she does and it sounds like your Fiance is really supporting you.
If anything, maybe you’d get some funny stories out of it?

I’d just head dear ol granny off at the pass. I’d ride with him the 14 hours and on the way back I’d be like, “look, bitty. This is how WE ARE DOING IT. If you don’t like it, stfu and gtfo.” Hell no. She knows exactly what she is doing (my entire family is like this)and she knows she can get what she wants. Hell no. Just, no.

Aww thank you! Damn bullies.. even 80 year old ones..
That’s what I hate the most. She has no excuse for her behavior and knows what she’s doing.
