What a difficult spot to be in. With the invitations I would handle it like a business transaction. You ordered a product, stop by the store and pick them up directly from the store. Address them yourself and tell her to butt out (ok, so don’t really say that, but you get the point).

What a nice ‘gift’ she is offering you with the STDs/invites/etc.  I would be furious if my Future Mother-In-Law was doing that!  I dont even know what to tell you but if your parents are paying it is only fair that they have the same about of guests (or less!) than your parents.  Fair doesnt seem to be a word that she knows though..

Ah, wedding planning… trying to be rational with irrational people is becoming the story of my life.  Hang in there girl, at least you have your FH on your side.  Can you tell her you want all things before they’re mailed because you want your friend to address them bc she’s a calligrapher?  Haha.  Anything you can do to get them out of her hands, she cannot be trusted!

I think you have all handled this well. Good communication and I hope that you can give her the benefit of the doubt for the Save-The-Date Cards and then make sure YOU send the invitations yourself when it comes to it. I’m sure you can think up a reason to have them at your house before they get posted and not at hers/her workplace. But well done πŸ™‚
