If she’s so adamant about hosting a shower, then she can host you one. A second shower. Lots of brides have more than one.

It’s your shower, you invite whomever you want. If she wanted to contribute though she could have thrown you a shower for her side of the family. But she has no right to try and butt into your mom’s shower for you. If she lives in town I would invite her out to lunch or something and talk to her about it. I know I would hate to have gone into my marriage with tension brewing with the in-laws. Good luck!

That sucks.  She could throw another shower or offer to host the rehearsal dinner.  It’s good that your Fiance is understanding and invite the people you want.  She will hopefully cool off and be fine.

She sounds a little bit controlling. It’s good to set boundaries early in the relationship. It’s also good that you’re being so polite.
