I wouldn’t loose any sleep over her..She will get over it…have your husband explain to her that you had to cut family to accomodate her list.good luck.

I’m sorry this is happening.  Did you send her a copy of the final invite list?  If you did, I’d send another copy, I’d explain one more time the  deal and then … the crazy one is her and you’ve tried your best.

edit… i wouldn’t have cut my family for her either… but that’s just me

@mrsrigsby60:  Please stop letting this woman bully you! I know she’s your Future Mother-In-Law but please please for your own sake, put your foot down! It’s starting to affect you physically now and you should be able to have your friend and family at your own wedding! It’s not right! You don’t want to look back at the pictures years later and see the majority of your guests being people who you don’t even know that well! 

I would be so hoppin mad that she tried to impose so much on me! I’d have some really strong words to say to her. This wedding is about YOU and HIM, not a bunch of her extended friends!

@mrsrigsby60:  So there is no more room to invite your friends? No one who did not RSVP? Can your close friends attend the wedding ceremony only?

@mrsrigsby60:  As you have stated (in your other post about this woman) that you are not about to be more assertive with this woman, all I can do is say I hope you feel better for venting.

If you want to change the way you feel, I encourage you to own the fact that you are reponsible for how you feel by refusing to change the way you respond to this woman.

@mrsrigsby60:  If your wedding is in April, it is NOT too late to tell her tough crap and invite who YOU WANT. I’m assuming with a wedding that far out, invites have not been sent yet, right? So tell her how many people she is allowed to have and that’s it. DONT cut your friends or family for this woman. you’re letting her walk all over you and stress you out. it is NOT too late to change that and have people who matter to you at your wedding.
